Why worry about Catch Basins in your Underground Garage?

You never know you have a problem until it becomes a bigger problem.  This is always the case when it comes to cleaning drains and catch basins in your underground garage.  Debris may be lurking in your drains but not completely stop the flow of water.  One shift in the debris could be the difference between a catch basin back up resulting in the closure of your garage.

Think about the consequences of a closed garage.  Lost parking revenue and customer inconvenience is only part of the problem.   Water will find its way into minute cracks in the surface and walls, which could lead to costly repairs.

LowBoy Drain Cleaning Service a Hit for Lower Mainland Underground Parking Garages

With the density of population in the lower mainland, parking is at a premium.  Many buildings rely on underground parking garages to satisfy tenant and employee parking needs.  Some parkades exceed six floors underground. There is a growing issue of dirt buildup and flooding (due to blocked drains and clogged sump pits and pump chambers) commonly seen in multi-level underground parking lots. Until now, the cleaning and maintenance of catch basins/sump pits and pump chambers  in below ground parking facilities has been awkward with getting standard vacuum equipment into typically tight spaces associated with  below level parking.

EdenFlo has solved the height problem by customizing a vacuum truck that fits easily under the low ceilings  of a parking garage. The “Low Boy” can expertly maneuver in very low – clearance areas and efficiently inspect and clean  troublesome catch basins.

Catch Basin 101: Know Your Responsibilities

At Edenflo, we’ve always taken great pride in educating our customer base about the importance of catch basin cleaning. We think it’s important for property owners/waste generators to understand their role and responsibilities in the process.

That’s why, when we came upon an informative and entertaining video developed by the Capital Regional District (CRD), we simply had to share it! The CRD is the regional government for 13 municipalities and three electoral areas on southern Vancouver Island and the nearby Gulf Islands. The CRD provides regional decision-making on issues that transcend municipal boundaries, and they also develop partnerships to facilitate and deliver projects and services that benefit the region as a whole.

Their mandate is to serve the public and build a vibrant, livable, and sustainable region, so they were more than happy to give us permission to use their video in today’s blog. In addition to the video, their brief article on catch basin maintenance provides all the information you need to be a responsible catch basin owner.

If you’re in British Columbia’s Lower Mainland, Edenflo has preventative maintenance programs that can help you to manage your catch basin responsibly and seamlessly; contact us today for more information.

British Columbia Sump and Catch Basin Cleaning

Sump pumps need preventative maintenance to continue running smoothly and efficiently.  This machine assists the drainage system by removing liquids to help in preventing flooding and other high water issues.  When this system is not used often, you need to have maintenance done about every five years, but if you use it often or live in an area that is not good for this type of pump, such as somewhere with a lot of mud or sand, the maintenance should be done at least every year.

Why It Needs to Be Cleaned
The maintenance you have done on your sump pump and catch basin is to ensure that all gravel, dirt, and sand are properly and thoroughly cleaned out.  If you let these things build up they can end up in the sump pit and can break the pump or cause clogging.  It is important to have maintenance done so that clogs are not able to form and start causing problems.  When you have a clog there is a risk that the house will become completely flooded and the sump pump motor burned out.  In this type of scenario, you may not even be able to get to the pump and the problems will just continue to compound.

Getting the Sump Pump and Catch Basin Cleaning Done
It is important to choose a reputable company that will completely and efficiently remove sand and debris and the water from your culverts, sanitary and storm pump stations, sumps, and catch basins, according to EdenFlo.  When the work is done right you can rest assured that you should not experience issues like clogs so that your system will continue to work effectively and not cause you any problems or hassles.
