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.

Calculate the volume of stone needed in cubic yards and multiply by 1.5 to get the number of tons.
