sch 40 drain pipe
#11
  
I am replacing the clogged corrugated rain gutter drain pipes with sch 40 PVC.  One of the areas will have a car parked on (Nissan Sentra).  I have been searching the internet had have gotten lots of differing advice.  So I have a few questions.  What kind of gravel would I use for the bedding? Do I cover the pipe in Gravel and if so how deep?  How deep does the trench have to be to safely park on it?  Thanks in advance

I would use Schedule 80 to start with. $15 more.... At least Schedule 80 under any driveway/etc....

12" deep is going to suffice. What you want is undisturbed earth forming your trench. IOW, don't dig and backfill. I would bed the piping in sand, then gravel (#57 stone or G.A.B. .... your rock quarry will know what both of these are) and back fill with that. I'd put down 4" lifts and compact as best I could. Water helps. Leave it for a couple of days and put some water on it each day. Tamp it again and see if it needs additional topping.

Over-doing it? Maybe but is it over-doing it if it never fails??

Looking to use this in the perforated version to get the water out of a backyard that is lower than the those around it.  I couldn't find the thicker product I had seen in the past.

If you can find/get sch 80, use it......very hard to find here.

IMHO, shouldn't be a problem using sch 40, wouldn't used s&d that shallow.

Schedule 80 PVC shouldn't be hard to find. Home Depot and the like might not have it, but any plumbing supply house should have it. Schedule 80 is used all over the place in industrial plants all day long. Take cash to a supply house....it generally works around that "do you have an account" question.

Schedule 40 and schedule 80 pvc have the same OD, so you can use the heavier stuff under the driveway even with lighter fittings.  So all you need is to wave cash and buy full lengths of pipe at your local unfriendly plumbing supply house.  Assuming none of the less-unfriendly outlets don't have it.

And I agree with Terre that the heavier wall pipe is a better way to go, nestled softly in a sand bedding with crushed stone fill so it doesn't move with tire traffic.

It is better to be roughly right than precisely wrong.

If you list where you are at there is a good chance we can point you to a supplier.  Ewing Irrigation is a national company and seem to like to sell stuff to anybody willing to pay for it.  Ferguson also seems to be similar if you are carrying cash

Bremerton WA.  Most of my project is going through the garden and places not being driven over.  I have one spot where I occasionally drive my truck when doing back yard work, and I have one spot where the kid parks her car.  The rest of it is in places on no weight
