Choosing Drain Pipes
After browsing this site it seems not too many are fans of the black corrugated single wall rolls.
my options around here for drain pipes are schedule 40, sdr35, and hancor triple wall aka ads3000 triple wall (white outside/black inside https://www.ads-pipe.com/products/ads-triple-wall-smoothwall
the last product on that list is what I’d like to use for various reasons. But what’s weird is the local sales rep said he only sees it used in leach fields. That’s odd to me, especially since on the website(at least on hancor’s page) it lists lots of other uses for the pipe.
anyone ever used this pipe or seen it used? I’d like to be able to run this under an asphalt driveway. Also, I will use this for french drain as well as for general drainage pipe for storm water/gutter runoff.
Just a thought… maybe it wouldn’t be a bad idea to run schedule 40 or 80 under driveway at least, and the triple wall everywhere else, or am I overthinking it?
my main goal is longevity and durability. I do not mind spending a little more for the better out of the options listed above (except schedule 40 for French drain application as it is not available perf.)
i will attach an image of the triple wall pipe
sdr35 is an option, just would require one extra step for me, not a problem if it’s worth it.
