Hi Liz, what damage did you get from driving over pipe?, did you know you can buy UV protected pipe. I work with HDPE water pipe here in Bitterwater and it is pretty sturdy. Regards Jeff

Hi Jeff,  
Thanks for your comment! We use the orange hdpe at Pinnacles Ranch, which has a welded seam lengthwise long the pipe. The seam splits if you drive over it. I've also used the black hdpe that's rated for potable water and that seems to hold up pretty well to being driven over and being left in the sun. We acquired the orange pipe used from another rancher and it's been really handy, but I definitely go for the black pipe whenever I'm buying new stuff.
