These make absolutely no sense. It is like trying to fit to male hose-fittings together. They do not "connect" anything - they don't fit their own brand of 4" pipe. Wondering why they even make them? The only Flex drain product that fit together prpperly was the square-ended flex pipe that fits on the gutter downspout. What a waste of time!

This is a light duty water transfer pipe connection . I had a rainwater collection project to fill my pond and needed some thing cost effective to connect into a main line. This pipe fit the bill. I saved about 50 -70% of the price on a heavier duty pipe cost. Just remember this pipe is not meant to have any heavy traffic on it, You really want to install it in a no traffic area. I ran it down the side of house. It was super easy to install just stretch it out dig your trench and cover. This type of will bend and over around tighter curves much easier than the heavier stuff making it a lot faster to install. The connection is the right fit for the pipe that goes with it. I also had to use this connection piece to connect to a heavier gauge flex pipe. It was not a good fit. So i had to use tape to assure no leaks. I had a about 2 inches of rain the next day and the pipe performed as expected with no leaks.
Not done with the product yet. I still have 8 more connections to make and will see if it does everything it is advertised to do.

I have rainwater coming off the roof of my barn which needs to be drained into my fallow pasture. I bought several of these connectors, figuring that I would be able to stretch my 25 foot lengths of Flex-drain solid pipe the 100 feet into my pasture. Nope, these connectors will slip into the pipe, but leak like sieves. I've had to keep the drain pipe above ground instead of being able to place in a trench, and construct the draining pipes so that each one is slightly lower than the next, and thus just flows downhill. But this means I have to keep my horses out of a pasture which I hoped to use during the winter, so this is not a good solution.
