The catch basin is an integral part of storm drain maintenance that helps to prevent debris such as trash and other floatable material from entering the drainage system. Maintaining your catch basin to keep it functioning is the best thing to keep surface water flowing and keep water from pooling on your property.
What is a Catch Basin?
A catch basin in your driveway is an underground reservoir that collects water that may gather during rainfall or snow. Catch basins are extremely helpful because they allow for water to drain out of your parking lot. The water that drains from the basin ends up in the local sewer system, ensuring that your parking lot does not flood in the event of rain or snow.
Catch basins, however, are not a simple install-and-go project. You cannot simply set up a catch-basin and forget about it forever. As with every single element of your parking lot, a catch basin requires care and maintenance.
While catch basins mainly collect water to transfer to the sewage system, catch basins also collect dirt, trash, and debris. Things will wash away with the water when rain hits or snow melts. There is, unfortunately, no way to prevent that from happening. The dirt and trash drained by the catch basin will settle at the bottom of the driveway catch basin. That allows water to drain via the pipes located in the middle of said basin.
When it comes to driveways, we are a leading provider for repair services and resurfacing. We additionally offer asphalt driveway edges that are spotless and appealing. We also ensure that you have a catch basin in your driveway for better drainage when the weather changes so that water doesn’t collect. Since asphalt can hold the weight of vehicles, it is no surprise that it is the number one choice for roadways, parking lots and driveways. However, asphalt is not safe from harmful elements. Over time components like extreme heat, ice, salt, grease, oil, transmission fluid, gas and other damaging substances can make asphalt break and disintegrate. Potholes may also show up in outrageous cases and over a long period. Therefore, we continue to fulfil our customers wishes in providing a team that centers around repairing and maintaining driveway catch basins and more.
