A lot of people who install underground drains like to use corrugated pipes. The idea is that the small holes in the pipe allow water to escape into the soil which helps move more water at once. There is a problem with this however. Roots and other plants growing underground are attracted to water sources and they will eventually infiltrate your corrugated pipe.
Once the roots enter your underground drain, they will continue to grow until they are restricting the flow of water. In order to fix this problem you will probably need to replace that area of pipe if not the entire system. It is better to use a pipe that does not have holes in it such as PVC.
