french drain pipe

Can the black corrugated pipe be used and not collapse under the weight of the rock? Vehicles will never drive over this either.... I'm stuck between using.this since I have long runs vs. Hard pipe and.gluing it all together.... I will wrap the trench with cloth so no debris should ever enter the pipe....this ever needing cleaned out.... who all uses this and will it.be OK...

Sounds like a septic tank drain field... imitating that is probably your best bet...

Solid is the best stays at the grade you want for years.
The black crap wont stay unless its 3ft down. Freeze and thaw will move it.
It might work in your area.
Solid is easier to clean out if needs to be cleaned out and wont hold water in the pipe vs the black crap

But you must under price the job if asking ?? about the black crap
I see you going rent stuff to dig it. Do you even have a laser to help set the pipe to grade so it will flow. Do you know the fall of the grade before you price it.

I think from your threads you posted. You are over your head on this.
Good luck

No I've herd.people use.both.... both pipes have different uses and yes the solid I would say is almost always better.... reason id like to use corrugated is because i have. Some small turns.... yes I've got a level.... 1/4" per 7ft is what some suggest...I plan on 1" every 10'. Bout the rental... because I choose to to rent has nothing to do with my capabilities to do the job... its a wise.buisness decision prob rent.at the moment for me.rather than blow $100,000.00 on equipement I wont be on all week to justify it....solid is easier to clean..... we don't have must freeze Ans heaving here at all... our frost line is very low. 18" ...

And I think corrugated will stay at grade being I plan on useing 4" of base and compacting the trench before any rock goes into it....and its #57 clean is what ill be using... roughly 30 tons. I should have about 3 loads of topsoil coming out of the place in my dump trailer as well.... as far as pipe goes... it wont be over 18". Mainly 12-18" by time i daylight It.. no vehicle traffic can ever cross it or anything heavy as there isn't access to get back there...no trees for roots to invade the pipe... as for downspout pipes o will use the corrugated....as far as the French drain pipes.. plan on sdr35 or sewer pipe....I'm asking basic questions so I get multiple suggestions from multiple people to compare.... not because I have no clue what I'm doing.... I'm smarter enough I've got my buisness this far to not get ahead of myself....
