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.

Stacking two

Asked by
Valparaiso IN

August 6, 2016
I have a unique situation I am trying to solve and want to use this item more like a sewer system manhole and leave access for future cleanout of sediment. Since each unit comes with a lid, if I stack two on top of each other can the extra lid be used as a a bottom? Bettter yet, can the top unit be fliped upside down so I have four 4" knockouts all close to one another in the midpoint of the combined unit? I want to connect four 4" pipes coming into this unit all from the same direction and then have a single 12" culvert pipe exiting out the other side - using this unit as a transition point. These pipes already exist in a system that was installed 27 years ago in a line that is probably 700 to 800 ft long - I am trying to avoid a major dig.

Answer: 
The NDS Flo-Well is designed to be used in stormwater drainage applications and not for sanitary sewer uses. Flo-Wells can be stacked onto each other, but not flipped as described. There are tabs on the panels that allow the panels to sit on one another. The lid will not fit in the bottom of the Flo-Well. NDS part FWBP24 is a bottom panel for the Flo-Well. The bottom panel has knockout holes in it Read More

The bottom panel has knockout holes in it to allow water to drain into the underlying soil.
4" Pipes can be run directly into the Flo-Well. A hole for the 12" pipe would have to be custom cut in the field.

Answer: 
I imagine those uses would work. Seems like you would be using it as a junction. While it might make sense to put a "bottom" on it, if your drainage soil allows good leaching, you might leave the bottom open to drain away, if you're not using it for sewage. If so, my guess is it would work, but I'd probably seal the seams with a permanent caulk like 3M 5200.

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 36 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 4.0 out of 5.0 by good 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 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. September 2, 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.
