    Why do you think that you need stronger pipe? Won't the bottom drain pipe be encased in the concrete? Also, 6" pipe for a pond that size is a bit much. I think that you will find two 4" drains will cover a larger area and cost less for component parts (elbows, couplers...)

    For larger PVC pipe you have to leave Lowe's and look for an agriculture irrigation (or commercial plumbing) supply source.

    Google; "charlotte NC agricultural pipe supply"

    I'm with Ray, I don't understand the notion of "stronger pipe". My 4" BD pipes are plain old white schedule 40 and and incased in concrete. They and the 1" air lines are just fine after 8 years under 8' of water. You did plan 1" airlines to the BDs, right?

    "plain old white schedule 40" pipe is not the same or might not be as strong as the "green drain pipe" sold at Lowe's.

    My 4" PVC drain pipe is schedule 1120, 160 psi ag pipe which has thinner walls than schedule 40 PVC pipe.
