: Hi. We are looking to build a new home in the country and the builder has recommended a dry well instead of a sump pump due to the fact the sump pump is of no value in a power failure. I would appreciate your feed back on this. Thank-you Donna

What are you using the sump pump/drywell for? A sump pump can be noisy,can fail mechanically, and you need a place to discharge it,if it is going to get heavy use i:e softener or filtration equipment discharges then a drywell would be my suggestion. Make sure it is properly sized to handle the entire discharge load and then some.
