- Excavate a hole large enough so the top of the drain box will be at the desired height and there is sufficient room on all sides of the box for 4”-6” of sand backfill.
- Make sure the bottom of the hole is flat, and well compacted, situate the box with the outlet connections oriented in the proper direction.
- Connect the drain lines. Compact sand evenly around the box leaving room for 4”-6” of topsoil or appropriate grade material.
