    Something like 4 inch diameter? As long as it's got decent pitch, standing water in the pipe will never be high enough to cause a freeze burst.

    If it should happen to freeze hard, which is very unlikely underground, the ice will seek the path of least resistance and simply expand along the pipe if it's able to. Only if it can't might it split the pipe, though corrugated hose will probably stretch to accommodate it.

    it's unlikely. the water will evaporate enough to prevent that

    no only way ice usually hurts pipe is if its full with no room for expansion. Hdpe pipe is used everywhere under ground above ground
