Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dmb10 Great product, good directions/easy install, works like a charm!
Flo well was easy to install with clear directions and good quality materials. Already had a couple heavy downpours and it's working like a charm.
Picture taken with top off for perspective, final install will be completely covered up to overflow emitter on top.

This kit is composed of 4 pieces, top and 3 curved pieces that slip together and lock in place. Once assembled and in place it was durable, getting the top to lock in place was a bit tricky. All the complaints about knocking the holes out are overrated. Double check where your knock outs for the inlet and outlets will fall, due to the 3 piece nature of the bottom pieces you need to pay attention to get the inlet and outlet 180 deg away from each other. My overflow ended up at about 135 deg from the inlet. I didn't use the top overflow option. I stapled the filter fabric directly to the unit before i put it in the hole, was easier than trying to do it after. I also used the drainage pipe with the integral sock and packing peanuts for the last section of pipe before the dry well to increase capacity. This is connected to trench drains around my foundation, heavy rains have caused some temporary puddling around the foundation, but the overflow on the drywell has never been needed. Works well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FlipFlip751 A Great way to deal with Excess Water around Yard & House
I was researching some ideas to deal with excess water in my backyard and came across this product. I'm Glad I did... It's lightweight, durable, easy to install and has a good capacity for a compact barrel. It's a little wider than a typical garbage can but a lot shorter. Real simple installation but gave it a 4 because there is some digging involved and that's not too easy.. Me and my buddy had it completely installed in about 3 hours.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PoorerRichard Second Purchase of a proven solution...
Watching my neighbor, years ago, struggling to dig then drop a concrete drywell into the prepared hole convinced me of how attractive this molded poly drywell really is. I've installed the second one for storm and greywater on our property recently and as pleased with the results as the first. One adjustment is to use a hole saw to fit for cutting out the drain pipe holes you intend to use. It is much faster than trying to cut and knock the very tough plastic out. Assembled and back filled, it is very sturdy. Not the least expensive way to go but the ease of installing it make it a very good value in my opinion.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ZeekfromDillsburg Good Solution for My Problem
I need a way to get rid of the water from my water softener. I was originally draining it out under my deck, but that caused washout and killed a big area of grass. A landscaper proposed a french drain in the form of a big hole filled with stone, which I rejected based ion looks. I found this online and knew it was the answer, so I had them put this in the hole surrounded by stone. I bought the optional top grate so I can access if need be. They cover the whole thing with topsoil and ran the softener drain line about 2" underground into the side of the tank. All you see is the 4" top that sits about an inch above soil level. The biggest issue you will have is digging the big hole required for this. The landscapers used a huge auger bit on the front of a skid loader that did the job great, with the exception of hand digging a few rocks out.

Expensive, but hard to find something similar or construct something yourself.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Jeremy Good product, kit lacking
The kit that you get comes with three sides and a top, but you need a bottom and a vent also. The kit comes with some instructions on how to assemble it bit not how to use it. You have to visit the vendor's website.
The problem with the kit is Home Depot doesn't even carry some of those key components. I didn't even consider that it wouldn't come with a bottom. None of the videos I watched said anything about a bottom. I didn't know it didn't come with the kit until it came in. By then it was only days before all my equipment, rock and help showed up to get it done.
Sitting it on top of gravel without something under it, I was concerned that over time the dry well would work its way into the rock and sink down. I suppose that would limit its effectiveness while creating a depression in the lawn. I don't want to have to do this again. I put two separate lines in with 3 wells in series on each line.
When I installed mine I glued the top and sides together so it wouldn't come apart. I didn't want it to fail after I cover it up - since we would be driving the lawnmower over the top of it.
