Helpful Hints for 

Catch Basin Cleaning

Catch Basin Cleaning

Catch Basins are essential for helping to maintain public safety and health. Catch basins allow surface water runoff to enter the storm water conveyance system, while trapping solids -- including litter, rocks, sand, leaves, and other debris -- and sediments that might otherwise end up polluting the receiving water bodies. If water is pooling on the street it is often an indicator of a blocked catch basin.

Catch basin cleaning is an efficient and cost effective method for preventing flooding and removing sediment and harmful pollutants before they enter waterways. Catch basin cleaning also helps mitigate risks and prevents costly emergencies.

With the threat of such emergencies it is important to have a plumbing company that you can count on. Cloud 9 Services Inc. in Orlando, Florida, we are the ultimate professional underground utility contractor. We are available to handle everything from a catch basin cleaning, to a lift station maintenance and repair, drain cleaning, catch basin drainage, etc.

Determine a Schedule

Preventative maintenance should be performed on a reoccurring monthly or annual basis. Possibly more frequently for known trouble spots and during certain times of the year. Cleaning is also recommended after leaves have fallen off the trees and during the rainy seasons when storm water runoff is more frequent.

To determine how much material has accumulated in the storage area of your catch basin, insert a long pipe or broomstick into the storm grate. Pay attention to where the pipe or stick hits the debris ad continue to the bottom to estimate the depth of accumulation.

Types of Cleaners

When using a combination sewer cleaner or a dedicated catch basin cleaner to vacuum the debris out of the catch basin, high pressure water can also be used to thoroughly clean the sides and bottom of the catch basin. These versatile machines scour pipes clean then vacuum up the material causing blockages to be restored and maintain normal sewer flow.

Dedicated catch basin cleaners and combination sewer cleaners generally feature longer debris tanks, longer water carrying capacity, and longer boom reach than other solutions.

By following a few simple guidelines, the general public and local residents can help ensure catch basins in their communities function properly.​​

  • Clean up any grass clippings, leaves, dirt or fertilizer left on driveways and sidewalks after performing yard work. Housing or blowing these materials into the street end up in the catch basin and storm drain, and eventually into local waterways.

  • Don't dump chemicals, motor oil, pet waste, empty bottles or cans, soapy water, or other liquids or solids down a catch basin or storm drain.

  • Contact your public works department if you notice standing water near a catch basin or storm drain after rainfall, or if you notice a clogged or damaged catch basin.

Even if you do everything to keep your catch basin clean it still requires maintenance to keep it at it's peak performance capabilities.
