    Nick...”thinking about it more”

    Stop thinking and build your bloody pond Class E or C for 4inch bottom drainsClass E or C for 4inch bottom drains

    In an “open” gravity fed system you aren’t exerting any kind of “pressure” likely to bother a pipe of any description unless it’s made of paper mache, there’s 100’s of threads on here discussing the pros and cons. It boils down to basically longevity and dropping stuff on it.
    I’d wager that 99.9999% of any problems encountered with pressure pipe (or most other pipes come to that) are related to poor joints rather then anything “breaking”.


    Same goes for a pond base, naff all pressure unless your pond is 800ft deep.

    The walls however...I learnt the hard and expensive way

    Apart from that Fred you cheeky monkey lol.
    Solvent weld, pressure pipe, class C will be fine.
    Everything heavier than that is a bonus.

    Again, plenty have used brown push fit soil pipe or the black/grey solvent weld waste.
    Rubber boots are a big no as they’ll eventually perish and that’s not a great idea when they’re buried under 20 tons of water

    Back in the day, pressure pipe was megabucks, not so now but large diameter swept bends are pricy so don’t mess up the gluing of those!!

    Pays ya money and all that.
