Lower Mainland’s Wet Season a Reminder to Inspect and Clean Your Catch Basins

The abundance of rain that the lower mainland receives this time of year is a good reminder for you to do your part to minimize potential flooding by getting catch basins inspected and cleaned on a regular basis.

Over time, the ability of catch basins to do their job deteriorates from the elements.  Debris including organic waste, pieces of asphalt or concrete and other particulate matter contribute to restricting the flow. Eventually the flow stops, and then you have a big problem.

The catch basins lead to the storm main lines.  This is your defence against flooding.  The catch basins are there to trap sand, silt and debris, preventing it from getting into the storm main lines.  Regular maintenance can ensure that the buildup of debris in the catch basins is never great enough to block the flow of water.

A call to EdenFlo Pump Truck Services to inspect your catch basins is now more important than ever. If your catch basins do require service, we have the right equipment to do the job including special “Lowboy” vacuum pump trucks that fit into lower spaces, like underground parking garages.
