Catch Basins

When considering a catch basin option, there are many choices available to consider for your small or large projects. And according to a Wisegeek.com blog about catch basins, these basins are designed to work in conjunction with a storm drain or sewer system that traps debris so that debris does not enter any drainage pipes. There are many catch basin options that are available like PointDrain, Polymer Concrete Sumps, Polymer Concrete Catch Basins, and Fiberglass Catch Basins.

PointDrains are great for small sized applications used on residential projects, where there are no issues with complex ground slopes. Polymer Concrete Sumps are used in conjunction with a stand-alone unit or a trench drain system. Polymer Concrete Catch Basins, or a series 600 multi-part polymer concrete catch basin, can work well with PowerDrain (S100K), ChemDrain, and also KlassikDrain. Filter bags and risers can be used with polymer concrete catch basins. Fiberglass Catch Basins can come in many different frames and grates. Channel collars and pipe adapters can be used with fiberglass catch basins. Trash buckets are also an option for choosing these basins.

Slot Drains

Slot drains can be considered as an option for these locales: Airports, gas stations, highways, motor racing circuits, docks & ports, military bases, and truck stops.

All three of these commercial slot drains have been designed to meet the high demand for a pliant, yet high capacity drainage system. The three sizes can ensure better flexibility for designers and engineers for optimization.
