Drain Tile Stone Calculator?

Hi everyone I am in the process of trying to put in drain tile around my foundation. I was wondering if anyone know how much stone I am going to need. I know the pipe itself is 4" and that I need 1 1/2 crushed stone or Limestone 2b. But am not sure how to calculate the amount of stone.

Drain Tile Stone Calculator?

Calculate the volume of stone needed in cubic yards and multiply by 1.5 to get the number of tons.
What we've got here is... failure to communicate. Some men you just can't reach. So you get what we had here last week, which is the way he wants it... well, he gets it.
