Its called drainage tile.....Try calling around to landscape suppliers or contractors. If you have a Farm supply place, they may have some too.

You'd have to look around to get pricing. Contact your local gas company, see if they have any that can't be used laying around. Might be able to pick it up cheap. I believe most of it now-a-days is bright orange too.

We could never find the yellow drainage tune so we used 3.0" gas line, it is WAY ($2.41 per ft. and that was my vendor price from my supplier) more expensive than the drainage tubing. I googled my Arse off for the drain tube, hopfully someone can post a distributer.

I know they use it on baseball fields also in our area, I am sure it is around, I just couldn't locate any last year. Let us know

I actually have a baseball field in my town that has it. So i talked to the maintenance guy and they get it through a company called Tomarc. But they get it with a cut down the middle so it goes on top of the fence. But if we can find out who supplies Tomarc we will be in good shape. On Tomarcs website its $180 for 250ft

Our track cant spend that much, most of the time our track is 800-900ft long. Then double that for pipe. $2000 in pipe would put us out of business.

Look up Directional Boring contractors in your area.Those guys buy that pipe on reels up to a quarter mile in length and often have a lot of leftovers or damaged pipe that they will sell cheap...It's worth a shot. Good luck.
