: I saw your guidance regarding the construction of a
: drywell. I live in Florida and have sandy soil which
: seems to perc well. I plan to add French drains to
: remove the roof water from around my house.
: To do this, I plan to connect my guttering to two 4"
: black-corrugated pipes located on each side of the house
: and empty the water about 20 feet away into two drywell.
: My question is simple, how large of a drywell do you
: feel I need? Is the use of two drywells an over-kill?
: The house has 5 gutter down-spouts and is around
: 2000 sq ft. The books I have read say a 55-gallon
: drum can be used. They also mentioned concrete blocks.
: What are your takes on this? Any help or guidance
: will be appreciated.
