    How does this hold up to our cold New England weather? I live in Salem, Massachusetts. I have had a few contractors give me quotes for a typical French Drain. But I would like an easier less costly solution.

    Geoff,

    This is just a different perforated pipe for a typical French drain. It is a stack of narrow corrugated perforated pipes instead of one wider pipe. The benefit is that you can use a trench machine like a Ditch Witch to cut a narrow trench to install it rather than hand digging or using a mini excavator to dig a wider trench for a 4" pipe. The stack allows movement of a bigger volume than just one skinny pipe. It just depends how much volume you have to move. You just have to realize that a 4" pipe have a much higher volume capacity that a stack of six skinny pipes.

    Have you used this product? Do you know of a distributor in the Massachusetts area?
