What Should We Know About Catch Basin?

Catch basin is to collect excess rain and ground water to prevent surface from flooding. In a nutshell, a catch basin is a part of a storm drain or sewer system that is designed to trap debris so that it cannot enter the drainage pipes.

Catch basins and drains that become clogged due to accumulated debris and sediment (rocks, sand, dirt, leaves, or any debris that was washed into the catch basin) can cause water to collect in your parking lot, which can cause flooding and safety issues as well as damage to your asphalt pavement. 

A catch basin simply needs to be able to accept storm water and filter it down into the corresponding watershed or into the sewer. These structures are a vital part of the system preventing flooding and contamination. Regular cleaning and proper maintenance of catch basins will prevent parking lot flooding, backups and hazards.  

Similar problems can be avoided when it comes to sump pump maintenance. Sump pumps generally last for around 10 years, but require basic, regular maintenance in order to prolong their operational lives and avoid a catastrophe if a major need arises.
