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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by fish4food Sku 149985 saved me lots of money
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 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kyle Makes excellent barriers for my remote control car race track
I bought this pipe to create the perimeter and barriers for a remote control car race trace. The piping works great - especially when you zip-tie the hook side of Velcro to it and stick it to a low nap carpet. Will be buying more to expand my race track.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pipe best super pipe in the world.
A huge black pipe to handle all your irrigation needs. Be advised it doesn't flex very well since its so hard. But if you leave it in the sun it will soften up to make it easier to work with.

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?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Corex drain (culvert) pipe
After cutting the pipe to length, I realized that it was unsuitable for my project. The ditch I was crossing was shallow so that the pipe would have to be sunk into the ditch creating a hole or I would have had to build the road up on both sides with road base. Both were considered unsatisfactory so I went to plan B and built a low bridge out of pressure treated lumber which was then covered with road base.
However.... that being said, the Corex pipe would have been perfect if the ditch had been deeper. It was particularly handy that I could order it on-line and have it delivered to the local Home Depot. I found that I could double it over on itself and transport it in the back of a pickup. It also (as I found out) cuts easily with a hand saw.
