Another choice for conduit is SDR35 (or SDR26 with a heavier wall) PVC
pipe which in 4" and up diameters can be had with rubber gaskets. No
glue involved. Check with your local pipe suppliers as it is used a lot
for drainage and sometimes if codes permit for sewer. I used some 8" x
20' lengths for drainage.
