Dry well installation

With a new perimeter drain and sump pump in the basement we’ve got to put the water somewhere! The building inspector did not want us to pump the water onto the yard even though the customer was happy with that as a solution. So we selected the farthest point from the house (and lowest point on the property) and dug a 7′ x 7′ hole. We laid 12″ of 3/4″ stone at the bottom of the pit. We had Shea Concrete deliver a 500 gallon pre cast concrete dry well. We lined the dry well in landscape fabric and backfilled with 3/4″ stone.
