Catch basin, which is also known as a storm drain inlet or curb inlet, is an opening to the storm drain system that typically includes a grate or curb inlet at street level. Storm water enters the catch basin and a sump captures sediment, debris and associated pollutants. Basins are able to prevent trash and other floatable materials from entering the drainage system by capturing such debris by way of a hooded outlet. They are designed with an outlet pipe (sanitary waste and storm water in a single pipe) and a flapper (trap) device to prevent the backflow of any unpleasant odors from pipes. Catch basins act as pretreatment for other treatment practices by allowing larger sediments to settle in the basin sump areas.
Catch Basin Cleaning
Most catch basins are have steel grates that keep large foreign objects from entering. However, smaller materials like food wrappers, plastic grocery bags, fallen leaves, and other common litter, drain into the catch basin by rain or water from hoses. Over time, this material accumulates and clogs the catch basin.
Drainserv technicians have experience and tools needed to quickly clean a fully clogged or nearly-full catch basin without impacting your business and causing downtime. Vacuum truck and hydro jetting tools can clean Ssediment from the bottom and along the walls of your catch basin.

After cleaning your catch basin, work with your employees to minimize the amount of litter and material that enters the basin.
