A catch basin, also known as a storm drain, is an opening to the storm drain system that typically includes a grate inlet located at the street level. This sump captures debris, sediment, and other associated pollutants, which can be found in a stormwater. Catch basins are able to prevent debris and other materials from entering the drain system, capturing them by means of a hooded outlet. The outlet pipes for catch basins are outfitted with a trap – a device that prevents the backflow of unpleasant odors from pipes. Our company carries out catch basin installation in Toronto to prevent your house from storm sewer blockages and minimize the volume of pollutants entering the storm drain. Clogged catch basins may result in the ponding of water on the streets. That is why it is very important not only to install them properly, but also to carry out regular sump pit cleaning and catch basin cleaning.
Catch basin maintenance services include the removal of sediments and trash collected in the sump by means of special catch basin cleaner. Additional maintenance activities include hydro excavation work and installation of interceptors in catch basins throughout Toronto.
