Answer: 
There is not a top or bottom to the product. The 2 common mistakes that people make when installing this product are:
1 - When installing in a soil with high clay or silt content you will need to first line the trench and then install the product.
2 - When installing in a soil with high clay or silt content do not back fill with the clay soil. You want to backfill with permeable soil.

Answer: 
I cannot recommend using this product for downspout connection. It would serve you best to route the water directly away and sloping downhill from the structure with non-perforated pipe for a distance of at least 20' clear or to day-light if placed in a ditch.

Answer: 
Yes, the EZ-Drain can be connected to a downspout but not until you are 10' away from the home. A french drain allows water to slowly drain into the ground. You will want to first connect a solid pipe to the downspout and then connect the EZ-Drain once you are 10' away. This prevents water from draining into the ground immediately adjacent to the home.
The EZ-Drain can be used as a foundation drain

The EZ-Drain can be used as a foundation drain (installed immediately adjacent to the foundation) if it is being used to collect water that is already in the ground. You don't want to intentionally introduce water into a drainage system that is designed to slowly leach water into/out of the ground if that system is next to your foundation.

Answer: 
The NDS EZ-Drain should not be used in septic applications. Please contact Infiltrator and ask about EZ-Flow Septic. This is a very similar product that is made specifically for use in septic fields.

Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by works I used this as a footing drain around my foundation. Having used stone and rigid pvc with more stone and filter fabric in the past, this was an incredibly easy product to install. Make a level trench, backfill with clean fill until 6" covered and your done. even bends pretty well around corners. Buy some extra snap ties and you can cut custom lengths to serve your need. If this came on rigid pvc i would pay extra for the added durability. I'm not a fan of corrugated pipe due to the sloppy fittings and sags inherent with this pipe. I Tee'd this together around the foundation and then made my own transition to PVC out to the drywell. (also part of this system.) August 29, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Footing drain continuity It appears to me the interior pipe's invert lies about 2" above the bottom of the unit or about 2" above the top of the footing. This would allow water to accumulate to a depth of 2" before it can access or enter the interior 4" pipe. How does the water get from one section of this pipe assembly to the next? Because of the way these units connect end to end or turn a corner, this cannot happen unless gravel is placed around each joint but then the water would still remain at a depth of 2" or so unless the entire assembly is placed so it can drain to daylight. And with water standing at the base of a masonry wall, its natural tendency if to wick upward into the block or concrete. Is this a accurate observance on my part? Kindly reply, Tim Shaw July 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by One of the simplest installations ever I did a lot of research on how to install a French Drain and ordered all the parts that I needed online. When I went to pick up my order at the store I realized I need another part. My original design was to use a Corrugated HDPE Drain Pipe and fill the trench that the pipe goes in with gravel. This would mean that I would have to buy at minimum a half dozen bags of gravel and tote them home with me in my car (no truck). While looking for the part I discussed my installation design with the Home Depot plumbing expert and he suggested a different product that what I ordered. He pointed me to the NDS Quick and Easy 10’ pipe. I purchased and installed the pipe without the extra effort of adding the gravel. August 18, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 2 Things to be careful about This product is a great idea- I did the calculation and if I'd used gravel, normal perforated pipe and the landscape fabric, I'd have save a few dollars for each 10 foot section. No brainer. I had two challenges in using this: 1. My yard doesn't have much slope, so I had to be very careful to ensure the drain was correctly pitched. To do this I ended up buying gravel, mostly b/c its much easier to adjust your slope with gravel than with dirt. 2. When you plan your french drain, unless you're going into a dry well, its going to be tricky to have this product drain at ground level, b/c of the way it is completely encased in the 'drain' section.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by I don't recommend this product I installed this in my yard which has underground springs and for the first 8 months it worked great, however after an extremely hard rain two months ago it stopped draining and my yard is a swamp again. January 28, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Backyard solution I recently installed this French Drain System in my back yard and I wanted to rate this product (Profession Engineer) for myself; I have a wet back yard with what appears to be an underground spring. The yard dry's up well throughout the summer with bright green grass and so forth. However, I installed the EZ-Drain my backyard and the yard is still so WET, literally my shoes and socks get wet cutting the grass. So I installed a surface drain to verify the amount of water the system is taking in from the soil. It clearly is not taking in any water (very little if any). I Have been monitor this for about a month now. I believe this product is nowhere close rated the same as a standard gravel French Drain assembly. The packing around the tubing does not appear adequate compared to the gravel/soil saturation point. Well that's my input hope this helps your decision. June 6, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Clogs quickly Don't buy this, just buy gravel, a drainage sock, and perforated pipe separately. We installed two french drains. One with this prefabricated drain. The other was gravel, a drainage sock, and the perforated pipes all purchased separately, since we had some leftover gravel . The traditional drain worked extremely well. This one performed horribly. It clogged completely with soil, whereas the separately purchased drain sock performed well. I have three theories: 1. The drain sock included in this prefabricated drain is lower quality than the one we purchased separately. 2. The foam pellets in this drain gets compressed when placed, reducing it's ability to drain water compared to gravel which doesn't compress. 3. The drainage sock on the pipe rather than around the foam allows the gravel to filter some sediment without clogging the sock. In any case, don't buy this, just buy the perforated pipe, sock, and gravel separately. July 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great purchase. This french drain was very easy to install. Didn't have to haul rocks and buy extra pipe. October 14, 2014
