Catch Basin Services

Catch Basin Services

It’s safe to assume we’ve all been through those flooded parking lots or driven through a road knee-deep under dirty rain water? These inconvenient water logging situations are probably due to a full catch basin, also commonly termed as a storm basin.


What is a Catch Basin?

Catch basins are inlets with a metal grate positioned on the top. There’s a sump just below the pipe that catches the sediment alongside other debris and trash that could potentially enter the drain.

These are commonly located by roadways to take care of the pavement’s runoff. Regular cleaning and maintenance is required to keep these catch basins operational, so they can protect your streets from flooding.

These are an important part of your property’s drainage system, directing surplus water runoff away from your city’s sewage or drainage system. They effectively stop debris like large sticks and leaves from perpetrating the system.

Over time, your catch basin will need to fully cleaned so that it can continue reliably filtering out the waste. Environmental organizations recommend these to be inspected and cleaned at least once a year – the basins might need more frequent cleaning for heavy-duty use like in industrial areas.

The collected dirt, grease, trash, and other gunk is cleaned out of the whole system with special equipment and dispersed to an appropriate facility for further processing.

Importance of Cleaning Your Catch Basin

Here’s why you should absolutely consider proper cleaning and maintenance of catch basins a big deal:

  • Disposing the sediments adds to the overall aesthetics and quality of the inlet.
  • Flooding can effectively cause structural damage to your property. Proper drainage prevents this.
  • With proper drainage facilities, you’re equipped to take on serious weather condition and keep the water flow smooth.
  • Full catch basins are smelly! Nobody wants that, and cleaning is the only way to achieve an odor-free, fully- functioning catch basin.
  • Stop inconvenient and hazardous flooding throughout roads, parking zones, as well as other paved surfaces.

Aside from that, blocks result in runoff water to settle, leaving you vulnerable to destructive flooding. There have also been instances of mosquitos making such settled waters their breeding grounds, not to mention other disease-carrying insects. Federal laws and city codes also need homes and businesses to comply with their catch basin codes to maintain a safe environment for residents.

A few days back, the lid of my sewer pit got loose, and some odd odor started wafting out. I tried several measures of my own to seal the lid shut, but none of them worked. I called Master Waterproofing, they came the next day, and fixed a new lid. The work was clean and quick. Job well done!

I called the Master Waterproofing to replace my old drain pipes that got blocked, they were very professional and polite, and before the initial work started, the manager himself explained the steps. The work was completed on the scheduled time, and the price was reasonable as well. All in all, I would highly recommend them.

My kitchen drain pipe clogged up, and my friend recommended Master Waterproofing because of their prompt replies and amazing work, and they were actually prompt and quick. The work they did was clean. My kitchen pipe works smoothly, and it was super affordable considering the great work they do. Thanks, Master Waterproofing!

I was already running late for work when my kitchen sink clogged up during breakfast. I called Master Waterproofing while at work to fix my kitchen sink by 5pm because I was hosting a party that night. They said “no problem,” and when I came home, the job was already done. Thanks guys, you saved the day.

My upstairs drain pipe got jammed because of leaves and tree roots. I called, and Mike showed up to look at the drains and estimated the price. The next day, he and crew started working and installed a new PVC. The work was clean and very good. I am very satisfied, and the price was right.
