In response to Re: installing garage floor drains
If you discharge it onto the ground, bad things will still pollute the soil.

: Hello All:

: I am in the process of designing a 2 car garage that I will start construction on shortly. It will be heated and insulated (I live in New Hampshire). Because I want to be able to wash my car in the winter, I am hoping to install some floor drains. They will only see gray water from vehicle washing.

: My State Dept of Environmental Services has recommended against a dry well, due mostly to the fact that if anything bad gets in the dry well, no one sees it and it just quietly contaminates the ground.

: The man suggested that I discharge the drains to the surface. How would this be done? Does anyone out there have any experience with such a set-up. How do you keep it from freezing up in the winter? How do you keep the animals out? I would greatly appreciate hearing from anyone with any experience in this area. Thank you very much.
