A catch basin, also referred to as storm drain, is typically built at the curb, parking lot or on the edge of the road. It is part of a sewer system and allows for runoff of excess rain water. Although usually built for commercial needs, many property owners have begun to install catch basins on their property, near home or yard for additional drainage. These collect rainwater and funnel excess to the city sewer or storm drain system.
Having benefits that far outweigh the risks, catch basins and storm drains still need to be maintained and cleaned. Accumulated debris and sediment can cause water to collect in your parking lot which can cause flooding and safety issues as well as damage to your asphalt pavement.
Our Catch Basin Service is designed for both needs, installation and cleaning. If you already have a catch basis and simply need it cleaned, we can send out our truck to take care of the problem fast, effectively and at reasonable rate.
If you’re thinking about installing one at your home or business, take advantage of our Free Estimate and Consultation with one of our drain specialists to find out what’s involved with zero risk or obligation.
Sewer Pit Replacement By Best Plumber Toronto
I had an old sewer pit in the house with improper lid, which didn't seal the pit properly, could feel the sewer smell in the basement. Called several companies and every one of them said the only way is to replace the whole pit (they can't make a custom lid for the existing one). Other companies quoted more than $4000 for the job, plus 2-3 days of work(=several days of mess in the house). I tried to resolve the issue by other means: installed a fan, tried to seal the pit in different ways. Nothing helped. A friend of mine suggested them as a reliable and reasonable company. They came the next day after my call, gave me a much better quote ($1000 less than other companies), did an amazing very clean job in 1 DAY! Since then, my problem was resolved - no more sewer smell in the house. The pit works perfectly and will last a long time. I am very satisfied with their services and wish I knew about them earlier and didn't spend money on other stuff that didn't work. Would definitely recommend to everybody I know.
