I use a couple C-clamps to hold the box down to the top of the bed. This has worked fine for the past few years.

I'm baffled by how this drainage pipe is not sagging, what was holding it striaght? Yeah, I bet it did clog a bunch. I use 6" drainage pipe too, but mine is only half that long and it occasionally clogs too.

This is solid plastic drainage pipe, not the flexible stuff. Theres no chance this stuff will flex or bend. IF you are having issues with clogging I would definitely recommend going wider.

OK, I thought it was the flexible stuff. Yeah, I have thought of going to a larger diameter discharge hose but I might go with pvc since its smooth inside.

yup. double wall pipe is the heavy stuff thats rigid on the outside and smooth on the inside. the stuff thats rigid on inside/outside is only single wall pipe, thats what my local concrete company told me when i went to buy my pipe. Lowes/Home Depot carry this stuff only up to 6". anything larger youll need to find else where, your best bet is calling around to a local concrete company
