    I am on a slope and have a daylight drain from the drain tile. Is the proper installation for the daylight drain portion the same as the rest of the drain tile? I believe our builder simply connected perforated, corrugated pipe to our drain tile, ran it out to daylight, and back-filled the drain line portion with dirt. Could silt work it's way into the drain line and back into the drain tile?
