Catch Basin Repairs

To keep your property well-drained and ensure the quality of your sewage draining system, you’ll periodically require catch basin maintenance or repair services. Catch basins — often referred to as storm basins — are responsible for collecting pavement runoff and prevent large objects from entering the storage drain or sewage pipe. Over time, catch basins require repairs or need to have their excessive debris removed to improve drainage on your property, prevent unpleasant odors and reduce odds of flooding.

What Is a Catch Basin?

Catch basins are an integral part of your property’s drainage system. They direct water into an inlet connected to the city drainage or sewage system and a metal grate covers the opening of the basin to prevent large objects from entering the plumbing. Below the pipe invert is a sump that collects the sediment runoff and other debris that enters the drain. Catch basins are a particularly useful feature for commercial parking lots to prevent flooding or other common water damages. As part of proper catch basin maintenance, be sure to collect the contents of the basin regularly.

Quality Commercial Catch Basin Repairs

While you may easily overlook these features of your parking lot and drainage system, property managers and owners should keep an eye on their catch basins and note any signs of damage and repair needs. To ensure proper drainage on your property, catch basins may require periodic repairs to adjust the pitch and allow effective drainage efforts. You may also find you need one of the following common catch basin repairs:

  • Adjustment and Asphalt Repair: Sometimes, your catch basin may need repairs because the asphalt around the basin has become damaged, causing the basin to sink or shift. Causes of these damages include weak mortar, water erosion, recurring freeze and thaw cycles, salt exposure, heavy traffic or basin age. To repair these catch basin damages, depending on the extent of the repairs, may do a full rebuild, a top-half basin rebuild or just a concrete ring replacement.
  • Sinkhole Fixes: Is there the appearance of a sinkhole next to your catch basin? These sinkholes develop in areas next to catch basins and can indicate a damaged catch basin. This damage introduces a significant liability risk for property owners. Sinkholes often form when pipes adjacent to the basin collapse and water begins eroding the stone base supporting the asphalt.
  • Cleaning: To ensure the quality and efficiency of your catch basin, regular cleaning is crucial. During cleaning, a professional will use a vacuum truck to suck built-up leaves, mud and other debris from the bottom of your catch basin.
