Where Is The Catch Basin Located?

The catch basin is sometimes called a storm drain, catching waste and preventing it from reaching the drainpipe. It is found along the curb in the gutter on the edge of the road and is an important part of water runoff, storm sewers, and drainage systems. Cleaning this out with a pump protects commercial properties, stopping water from causing damage to buildings and landscaping.

What’s Involved In Catch Basin Cleaning?

Catch basins fill with sediment and solids; they have a vessel under the outlet pipe designed to capture solids that would otherwise flow into connecting pipes and creeks, streams, lakes and rivers. Cleaning this involves removing the accumulated waste that collects in the catch basin sump. It should be performed by professionals like GFS, as we are equipped with the right tools and know-how to pump out the catch basin and clean it with care.

Why It’s Essential To Clean Catch Basins

Catch basin cleaning must be performed regularly to ensure residue, prevent flooding, and keep drain systems efficient. Cleaning and maintaining your catch basin can prevent storm sewer blockages, reduce the contaminants entering the storm sewer, and stop water from pooling on streets, sidewalks, and open areas like parking lots. Taking out all that decaying debris and sediment can also get rid of bad smells coming from a drain.
