    I'm sure it will last longer and perform better than flex duct.

    I did make a deep sump pump pit exactly that way though.

    Someone was really trying to get rid of some buckets. He could have done them in an alternating pattern and got away with about 4, but instead he decided to stack them together. Wow.

    I think back in the 50's and 60's people ate a bunch more pie. I have seen more pie plates blocking off old gravity furnace chimney holes than anything else.

    That is some fine "Innovation".

    What is the design static pressure, I'm wondering.

    Yeppers, ... I've got a Customer, that has a sump pump in a crawl space, with about 12" deep of gravel, .... She had problems with the gravel getting in to her pumps, & when she called me, I found an empty 5 gallon bucket, dug a hole down in to the gravel, & put that bucket down so that it would hold back the gravel, & yet allow the water in to the bucket.

    No; my sump pump pits are six-plus feet deep.

    I accidentally discovered that there is a thick layer of clay about 4-5 feet under my basement floor. Once I dug below that the pits became self draining.

    The stacked bucket idea didn't really work that well so I switched to a length of 20" black ribbed plastic culvert pipe.
