    It has as smooth wall interior with enough pitch that the water drains out easily.

    As stated above, the pipe has a smooth wall interior. No ribs.

    Should be great when the snakes and such decide its fun to play in too! :) Neat idea though. Did the pipe bend like that easily or?

    Looks awesome. What did you charge for the tunnel and what did the pipe cost

    Neat idea and the project looks nice. I can't imagine that bent very easily, I've used that pipe for drainage work before and it doesn't want to bend. Did you heat it up to get it to bend?
