Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by zznet very thin
I suppose you get what you pay for. Very thin compared to the 10ft sections, but once underground and covered correctly there should not be any problems. If your using this for other purposes than drainage, you may have problems with the thickness/strength.

For years I was buying water bags for around my inground swimming pool cover in the winter they would go bad about every 2yrs and I had to replace them at a cost of about $100.00 So I got the bright idea to buy 100ft of the 4inch pipe and put it around my pool on top of the cover and prop both ends up with a 8inch concrete block to evelate both ends then I would fill it about 1/2 to 3/4 full of water.The first time I did it it lasted about ten years till a hail storm put holes in it the hail was about the size of golf balls or it would have lasted longer.Then each year I would roll it up and tie it up and set in my shed till next winter. So I figured over the 10 years I saved about $450 so you see some things can be used for more things than they are supposed to be used for. I have a Mobille home in Florida and completely remodeled it and used bought most of the material there. I like the fact you can buy and not be charged intrest for 6 or 12 months Had it not been for that I probably would have bought some at other stores.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DeeDee613 Right Product for my Job
I had reservations as I ordered over 150 feet of this product for the standing water in my yard, on my patio and around the foundation of my home. NOT THAT IT WOULD WORK but only that I would even get anywhere near finishing this project at all...lol. Well with a garden hose, just a pick ax, garden shovel and a few weak muscles this project is almost completed. One hundred (100) feet done and down to my last fifty (50) feet of flexible tubing left
As the heavy rains will be on there way in about a month or so, I will make this project a complete success with plenty of time to spare.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bhold Easy cheap solution for some residential drainage problems
This review is of the solid pipe, not the perforated pipe which is for completely different applications. I have been using this pipe for years to divert water around my house which sits on a slope using concrete gutters in back which feed into pipes on the side of the house. The system works great but I do not recommended burying the pipe near any tree roots which over time can damage buried pipe. If you are going to bury the pipe near planted areas I recommend you minimize splices and wrap any splices with filter fabric to minimize intrusion of roots and soil. Note, regular maintenance is needed - flush the pipes occasionally and snake immediately if clogged. Once you get a clog and enough soil and gravel backs up in the pipe you might need to dig it up for repair. PS, we have dogs so prefer 4" over the 3" because 4" will easily pass a dog ball through. Black is a good color because it is low visibility and can be installed on the ground surface under a deck or shrubs, which is easier than burying it.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by SGandMG Cheapest and easiest, but leaks at all connections
1, Use the fewest amount of connections.
2, Warning: don't use product connections if water leakage is a concern; for example, if water/humidity is seeping into your basement). The connections all leak. Instead, use one long piece... or a different product.
3, Ensure good slope so that less water will leak out of connections + so that water will exit the tubing rather than stay in the corrugated ribs.
3, Flexible and will mold to any trench and you can easily cut to length with a box cutter.
4, Consider drainage pipe with smooth wall inside to most effectively move water (and any debris) from downspout to exit.
This product is widely used because it's the cheapest; however, all connections leak. The question is, for your purpose, do the leaks matter or not?

I would recommend this product, I used it to encase water line & electrical wire for burial and it was easy to work with and done the job I needed it to do.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lefty good value for the price
pipe was perfect for what I needed, I used it for a feed to our pond. the price was good & ship time reasonable. the pipe did have a small hole in it about 10 ft from the end. I was able to tape it shut with electrical tape, so no big deal.
