I have a 40' run of white 4" PVC below-ground now and it's a good 
size for the amount of cabling I'm running. I've never had a problem 
pulling anything through it, and it's seen a lot of traffic so far. I 
didn't drill drain holes in it, but it's also sloping downwards at 
about a five degree angle from the house to an open field so any 
serious H2O accumulation will run out easily.

This other new one will be considerably longer, have some twists and 
turns in it and may rise and fall (not sure how or where the trencher 
will go just quite yet. I'm probably going to run at least 4" if not 
larger, and I will follow the advice given here and drill a few drain 
holes on the lowest sections, while keeping it over a bed of gravel. 
I'll use white PVC drain pipe once again.

Got a couple of possibilities but one really good place, with decent 
pricing on copper is C110 grade, 0.062" thick (same 
as Polyphaser's), double the size for 1/2 the price. Can't beat that 
with a stick.
