Advanced pro tip: start at the inlet, roll a ball down after each section is layed. If it stops, add slope.

No. If you are putting tile where itís needed, there will be water. Also itís pretty hard to put dirt under a tile that is already laid in the ground. But if you really want to lose your ball, go ahead.

We're talking yard drainage. If there's too much slope, lift up the pipe and kick some dirt in. How is that hard? If your ball is lost in the pipe, you don't have enough slope to carry the detritus.

Been more of a hassle to try to get them to hold together when you backfill. If you're not bedded perfectly or even push dirt from one side instead of directly on top, the joints bend and separate way more easily than a stout steel coupler

Never used anything smaller than 18" so I don't know about 8". I'f I'm going to invest the thousands of dollars required to transport equipment and dig up a road. spending a little more for a larger diameter pipe that's less likely to clog with debris is a good investment

What do you mean no angles for plastic pipe? Use them all the time.

I see the link for 12" 45's someone put up from Tractor supply, but it looks like the type you just hold together with zip ties: not something I'd trust for a down drain assembly. Do you have a vendor for belled angle fittings, say 24" or larger? If I could get belled fitting and hold them in place with cable anchors or something, might be worthwhile but no way I'd mess with zip tie couplers. I'm still avoiding them because of the fire thing, mostly just curious.

Dunno why everyone used the corrugated

If you use pvc you can at least run a snake through it later to clear the roots

Canít do that with corrugated pipe

Can too....

Thereís a lot of ďtheoriesĒ going on in this thread...

Drainage is simple. Number 1 rule, water goes downhill.

The first failure of a proper yard drainage system is to design it by accepting the lie that there will only be water running through the pipe.

You don't want the water screaming through but you don't want it slugging with leaves and debris either.

After reading this thread I think I'm just coing to make a 40' long concrete gutter 8-10" deep and 18" wide with some galvanized grating on top. Easy to clean out and I'll always be able to see what's going on.

I had to put in a massive surface drain this year. We did the double-wall corrugated, in a 10" (!) diameter. So it's smooth on the inside, and giant. That sucker moves some water. When I was testing it with a garden hose, the water moved much more quickly through the double-walled pipe, since it didn't have to fill up all the ridges. Obviously, that's not really a rate measurement, since it's just having to fill up the resident volume. But it took me maybe 10 min to get water through 40' of dry 4" corrugated. Then like 5 min to get it through 150' of 10" double-wall. Since we put this in, our pre-existing drains don't seem to move any volume at all--everything appears to go out the giant double-walled one. Kinda excited for flood season in the spring...
