Frequently Bought Together

Product Overview

The NDS Storm Water Leaching System is designed to collect storm water and discharge it into the subsoil, which conserves water and replenishes the water table. Use where excess water has collected and not wanted to remove the standing water. No need for piping systems to transport storm water to a far-off discharge point.

  • Stormwater filters naturally through subsurface, reducing pollutants, ground water tables are replenished by stormwater discharge on-site
  • Installs without the use of heavy equipment
  • Used independently or as part of a larger stormwater management system, Flo-Well units collect, retain, and discharge stormwater on-site, offering a gravel-free alternative to a traditional dry well
  • The Flo-Well comes with 3 interlocking side panels and a lid, bottom sold separately
  • The volume of runoff is reduced, which decreases chances of flooding and soil erosion
  • Manufactured from 100% recycled plastic
  • Each Flo-Well unit holds approximately 50 gallons of stormwater
  • Additional units can be connected in series to accommodate higher volumes of water
  • Surface inlet and filter fabric wrap are also available but would have to be purchased separately

Answer: 
The product I bought had a "knockout" at the top so it was sealed unless you wanted it open.

Answer: 
The Flo-Well comes in a kit that includes the three side panels and a lid. The side panels lock together and then the lid sits on top of the panels. Based on your description the Flo-Well will work for you.

How does the top attach to the unit? Is it easily removable? I would like to use it as an outdoor sump basin, and would need to access the basin every now and then for pump maintenance.

Answer: 
It has no bottom, so as a sump basin it would not work well for your pump, allowing sediment, sand, etc. into the chamber. The top attaches to a flange and has provisions for self-tapping stainless steel screws, if you want to secure it that way. Of course, you can add a 4" access port to the lid, but full pump maintenance would require the entire lid be removed. If you could find a bottom, it might Read More

Answer: 
The surface inlet for the Flo-Well sits on the lid for the Flo-Well. The lid does not screw or lock to the lid. Depending on the backfill, the surface inlet could be pulled up and removed. The grate on the inlet can also be unscrewed to provide access to clean out the inside of the Flo-Well.

Answer: 
Any geotextile or weed barrier fabric can be used to wrap around the Flo-Well to prevent sand or other soil from getting into the Flo-Well. Most of the water will drain out of the bottom of the Flo-Well. The small knockout holes only need to be removed in clay or silty soil. Well draining sands soils do not require the small holes to be knocked out.

Answer: 
The knock-outs are for running pipe to and from the tank. The drainage occurs at the bottom. I leave all the holes alone except the one where I run an inlet or overflow pipe to another drywell. Our soil is sandy as well. I have three of these on the property and they all work well.

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 34 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. May 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. July 5, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by well for water easy to put together but hard to keep together while moving from place to place. July 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. June 27, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Storm Water Containers Expensive, but hard to find something similar or construct something yourself. July 5, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 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. May 31, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Average... Idea is there but can be improved... first the good: it is heavy duty plastic and the knockout ports are good on the sides. Now for the bad/frustrating the sides kept coming apart and unhinged, once I put it together it should not be falling apart when simply carrying it or moving it into place. The top knockout port is only 4 inches (meaning you cannot get a submersible pump in and out if you wanted or needed to.) It seemed to be the best product on the market but overpriced and frustrating flaws. May 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Storm Water Leaching System OMG, why didn't we think of this before water from our neighbors deteriorated the ground around our fence! First storm, and it already paid for itself! We plan to buy a couple more for the area that floods out back from the septic sprinklers! Easy to assemble and install... Worth ever penny! May 24, 2016
