Concrete Drywells

Plumbing that collects ground water in a concrete drywell is common in NH.  A.J. Foss-manufactured precast concrete drywells are reinforced with steel rebar and structural fiber for strength and durability. For home plumbing use, a 500-gallon drywell is produced with 120 liquid seepage knock outs. These drains or seepage knock outs can be removed as necessary. Our customers benefit from the drywells our team casts with one, two, three and four-inch combination low pressure Polylok© Pipe Seal. Our team can also pour them with a bottom.

Area drywells in service can be used to catch groundwater from a driveway, or from within a lawn. In New Hampshire, they can be used in a sanitary septic design. Their job is to enable the connection of a water treatment system (pipes from a water softener, for example) to the drywell instead of running it into a septic tank, which is not recommended. Some people connect plumbing from their washing machine and dish washer to a drywell.
