Perhaps without realizing it, we pass by catch basins every day. They are openings into storm drainage systems that typically include grates at street level and a tank or basin underground. Designed to prevent trash and other floating materials from entering the storm drain, catch basins contain a sump pump, outlet pipes and flapper devices to catch debris and prevent backups.
Catch basin maintenance is very important because a clog can cause storm sewer blockages and allow too many pollutants to enter the system, which eventually discharges into local streams and waterways. If you need catch basin cleaning in Edmonton or the surrounding areas, be sure to contact Canessco Services Inc.
Spring thaw can cause catch basins to freeze, which means your storm drains are blocked. Keeping catch basins clean and free from ice buildups is an important part of keeping the rain water and snow melt from backing up in your parking lot or on your road.
Clogged catch basins can wreak havoc on your condo tenants and business owners. We use special vacuum equipment to remove all debris from the basin and flush the outgoing line, plus we have the technology to thaw any ice from your basins. Because they play a vital role in maintaining the safety and health of your home or business, catch basins need to be cleaned on a regular basis.
If your storm sewer is draining properly, you can go a while without catch basin cleaning. However, if you never have your basin inspected, it will clog at some point and lead to problems. Rather than waiting until it’s too late, you can schedule regular catch basin inspection and cleaning services to ensure debris doesn’t build up and clog your drains.
