What Type Of 4" Drain Pipe Is This & What 90 to Use


Take a look at the photos. This drain is to pick up water in a kind of swale and direct it out the other end of the patio. What type of pipe is this and what type of 90 do I need to get it to grade level after I backfill around patio. The OD of the pipe is about 4 & 3/16 inches

Is that a "rubbery" type coating within the pipe? IF so, then I have seen, used something like that in a plant where we pumped "waste" chemical through it so that we could process the "waste". The PVC, if that is what the white piping is, could/would handle the corrosive chemical but the coating made it somewhat silent. Yes, it did make a noise when the pump kicked in to pump out the pit. This is a drain line for your use remember, NO pressure: Maybe find a PVC or DWV pipe that would fit inside this existing piping and glue it into place, then you should be able to find appropriate fittings to do what you want from there.

I looked on google (triple wall drain pipe)- Is this it?
http://www.ads-pipe.com/en/product.a...E_/_Smoothwall
Or this?

I've seen your pipe before on job sites but never worked with it.
Google had a few more listings for stores and manufacturers.
Appears that PVC DWV fittings will work. Not sure about glue though.

Looks like Hancor makes a snap elbow or a tee that I can use to 90 up to grade level
