Ordered 6 pieces. One arrived damaged (crushed & split), so store had to reorder one piece. Pipe is being used to build dust collection system in workshop. Pipe fits very well with S&D PVC elbows and Wyes, but Bell end of pipe is VERY tight when pressing into another length of the same pipe (working indoors at room temperature), and I needed a 4 lb dead blow hammer to drive them together. Should work fine, and since this is for dust collection it is very important that joints be leak free, so tight fit was not a problem in usage once I got them together. The joining problem is greater if the pipe has to be cut, since the full length pipe section has a slight taper at its end, and shortening the pipe cuts off that tapered end, but even full lengths are hard to get together, requiring some persuasion (4 lb dead blow hammers are great). Joints are also locked with sheet metal screws and caulked at outer edge of bell connections to ensure air tightness.
Pipe is light weight and easy to handle - ideal when mounting in my shop ceiling.
All in all, I am pleased with the materials and Home Depot's service. While I recognize that the light weight and thin walls of this pipe makes it a little more challenging to ship, you have to consider that improved packaging or reinforcement would likely add significantly to the cost.
I wish the store stocked this pipe.

the sales person was very good in helping me select this & also when he was very helpful when I picked up this pipe. A very good sale person & a good human being. Your store would be improved if you had more personal like him.A military veteran ,named Tim.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by WolfePhotog Disappointed in condition
6in X 10ft drain pipe had to be shipped to store.Pipe that arrived was qval instead of round (either something stored on top or bottom of pile). One end was crimped and had to be trimmed off. Was disappointed in the condition of the pipe, went ahead and accepted the pipe because I had a time deadline.
