Catch basins are drains and systems that people mistake for other options. They tend to be considered trench, storm, and even French drains. When in fact, none of them are the same or that close in functionality. These basins, in specific, are complements more than systems. They will be installed, in most cases, right below the end of gutters or downspouts, which will help catch all the rainwater and direct it to the main sewage system and underground line. This prevents all the excess and flooding that tends to occur in locations where the drainage isn’t working efficiently.

At Wellington Pro Sprinkler & Drainage Systems, we consider all elements carefully and work around comfort and what you are getting from all additions. In most cases, you will see the difference with catch basins as how you get to direct water and avoid certain debris going into your main system. Keep in mind that all the water and debris that goes inside those basins will be moved to the sewage facility or the sump and reservoir of the underground system.

This means that catch basins never go alone, regardless of your specific needs. While they will work as independent complements, they must be connected to main systems and lines to work properly.

Now, besides the usual use around gutters and downspouts, you can install them in multiple locations to collect water and specific debris around the place. Streets and commercial properties are common areas, but you can prevent flooding and excess water depending on their placement.m

Feel free to address the options with us and how you can prevent damage to your foundation and all structures as long as the installation is done properly and in the right place.

Is Installing Catch Basins a Benefit for Your Space?

Overall, it is. You will notice an immediate improvement in handling all excess water, especially the one coming from storms and melted snow.

Additionally, they are one of the few drainage options that blend well with your landscape.

Depending on the location, you can have them installed in corners or blend them with your turf and grass. Doing so can also help keep your greens and plants safe and without all the excess that usually makes them die or will add more water than needed.

Landscaping may not be a priority for many, but it can come in many options and shapes when you know how to work with your drainage systems. Considering that most options directly influence how your property looks, we are confident you will find it refreshing to have an option that doesn’t.

Following this same line of thought, having them blend well with your landscape also adds value. You are solving your flooding issues and excess water while still enhancing your landscaping. As a result, people feel attracted to acquiring the property in case they ever decide to sell it at some point.

The main problem you may want to consider around catch basins is how difficult they can be to clean and maintain. While the grate and beginning of the hole and system won’t be difficult to clean, the rest is due to how deep it goes into your lawn. This will lead to some extra expenses you may want to consider.

However, the bigger picture offers comfort, and you get to handle all flooding and water without compromising your landscape. Additionally, catch basins are quite affordable in comparison with French drains or even extra pipes from your main sewage line or system in the property.

What Type of Catch Basins Should You Install?

The common rectangular and circular option works well in more spaces, but it tends to handle less water when dealing with flooding. This is due to the shape and form of the grate and how much debris it can catch or prevent from going to the system.

In most cases, we recommend going for the second type with larger pipes that will help with large amounts of water. This is better fitted for storms or locations where excess goes beyond the standards and when you want to avoid any extra issues with your drainage system.
