    I was just thinking, as I flushed and heard the shower drain gurgle, is it ok to run the shower drain out to a drywell?

    Whell, the best way ( i kind of remember this, from along time ago) is to tie it in to the plumbing before it leaves the building,not having it be its own seperate entity.You really diddnt say witch bath, etc, because you have a 2 story home, go in detail on witch bath it is, upstairs or down, etc, if anything else is acting funny, etc. Later, jacob

    Normally you don't want soaps in a drywell.... Drywells are normally used for ground run off. Or are you talking about a septan tank..... then you do but you have to use an additive to clean out... a Septan tank is because there isn't a public sewer system in your area.... otherwise they are not allowed.... that's what I remember from IPC 2000.
