Pre-fab french drain pipe vs making it yourself with real rock?


Hi All,

I'm about to lay the first pipe and was wondering if I should buy this:

http://www.homedepot.com/h_d1/N-5yc1...1#.UFFLpYbEzRY

OR

Make my own pipe with filter cloth and real rock?

Anyone have experience with this?

That price for that is nuts. Go with the sock and the stone.
