What Is a Catch Basin?

A catch basin is responsible for preventing large debris from entering a storage drain or sewage pipe. A catch basin consists of an angled inlet that directs water into the drain and a heavy metal grate for filtering out debris. Catch basins can be found in municipal sewage systems around the world as well as certain homes and businesses. Over time, catch basins accumulate debris, leading to poor drainage, foul smells and potential flooding — to avoid this, periodic cleaning is strongly recommended.

A catch basin inspection is typically included in the regular maintenance of your home or business’s drainage system. Based on your usage needs, Mr. Rooter Plumbing can determine the optimum cleaning interval for you and schedule regular service to ensure you will be protected in the event of heavy rain or other flooding.
