Is there a particular type of pipe that works well for a French drain? Pipes never really concerned me until I learned that the basement in my new house is actually a swamp when it rains, and I'm going to have to install a French drain near the basement along with a sump pit.
So, in my French drain/sump pit endeavor, what kind of piping should I use? PVC, copper, other kinds? I am really kind of at a loss because I've never had to do anything like this before, so I'd appreciate all the input I can get! Thanks guys!
