A pop-up is nice, but make sure you have an alternate plan for late winter and early spring when the ground is still frozen. I often have to disconnect my pop-up line and use a surface discharge system once every couple of years. - Not enough snow for insulation and slow thawing because it is on a NE corner of the house.
That makes sense to me however I have read else where the corrugated drain tile is what people generally use for this. In theory I don't want any resistance to my water flow so it would make sense to use smooth PVC, just like the gutter down spout is smooth.
I also don't want standing water in the system so do I need to drill small holes in the smooth PVC to ensure it will drain? and make sure I have pea gravel underneath the spots I believe the pipe will need to drain?
If there is dirt buildup in the pipe, I could take the pop-up off and use my pressure washer to blow it out.
