You can use either solid or flex pipe as ong as it is perforated. The holes should face the bottom opf the trench, the water will percolate up into the pipe and flow in the direction the pipe is slanted towards. If the holes were facing upwards the pipe would fill with sand and debris and become nonfunctional. Sometimes, the bottom of the trench can be lined with a plastic sheet and/or crushed rock.
