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: 
From the listing, it is 28.5" overall in height so the lid would be around 4.5" high when in place on the well. . I dug my hole 36" deep and put 5" of crushed bluestone into the hole, tamping it down well before inserting the drywell. I wanted access to the top port for adding enzymes, cleanout, etc. I laid a heavy piece of flagstone over it flush with the surface.Hope this helps.

24 in. Plastic Storm Water Leaching System is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 39.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 out of 5 by from 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 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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 out of 5 by from nds flo well I installed the nds flo well in a 4' by 4' hole just like recomended and its connected to 2 catch basins with 30 feet of sewer drain pipe. This flo well has been great so far, its been in the ground for about 1 month and stopped the flooding in my driveway and walkway. I dug everything by hand in Texas and my flo well is wrapped in the nds flo well fabric which was well worth the money. I surrounded my flo well with pea gravel. Thanks to this flo well and catch basins I have no more flooding in my driveway! I just hope it holds up well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to install The product ships in 3 identical pieces. They are easy to assemble; you flex the sides and they snap together. Knockouts pop out with a hammer. The 4" inlet hole is right size for both Sched 40 PVC pipe and PE flex pipe. Easy for a single person to carry and install. Well includes lid, but does not include NDSFlo fabric to keep dirt from entering, bottom (which is not necessary for most installations), drain pop-up (to allow overflow), or connector to pop-up.
