Drainage pipe

Is corrugated 4" or PVC 4" better as a drainage pipe? Does the corrugated slow the flow if there is a very large amount of water?

If you are trying to get rid of the water fast, use pvc. The corrugated will slow the flow of water, and hold some of the water in the dips in the corrugated parts. Some corrugated pipe is only corrugated on the outside, and not the inside.

Also, if you need to remove water faster than a 4" perforated pipe can remove it, you may want to up size your pipe.

the other problem with corrigated pipe is it traps sediment in the corrigations and can plug faster.
