Seen above is the storage lot of a perforated, corrugated pipe manufacturer in Illinois. For scale purposed the human subject was asked to stand in the photograph. As can be deduced from the scale, the coils of pipe are hundreds of feet long. Pipe like this is used in drainage applications around building foundations, behind retaining walls, and generally anywhere water is present and needs to be directed for proper drainage. Perforated, corrugated pipe is a relatively cheap product, but if not used can result in very expensive water damage.
