Spring is a Good Time to Clean your Catch Basins

After a long winter, the first signs of spring bring a sense of anticipation of warmer days to come. Your catch basins have waited for spring as well – having worked hard to drain runoff during the coldest and wettest part of the year. Usually, there is a significant build-up of debris and organic matter that has accumulated over the last months, making spring the ideal time to have your catch basins cleaned by the experts at EdenFlo Pump Truck Services.

Many property managers have regularly scheduled maintenance of their catch basins to ensure that run off at any time of year will flow freely, allowing the system to work as intended.

Spring is just around the corner, promising warmer weather. But there is no guarantee that, with that warmer weather, comes drier weather!  Spring rain events are legendary on the West Coast!  Be prepared, call the experts at EdenFlo Pump Truck Services.

Easy Tips to Know if Your Catch-Basin Needs to be Cleaned

The experts at Edenflo Vacuum Pump Truck service are known for their quick and efficient cleaning of catch-basins in the lower mainland.  Here are some tips to know when your catch-basin needs servicing.

What is a Catch-Basin?

Also known as storm drains, catch-basins are located along roadways, on parking lots and in parking garages. They drain water into the storm drain system.

Signs of Trouble

There are some telltale signs, however, that something is wrong with a catch-basin. Debris on top of the catch-basin that is blocking the flow of water, or, if the water is backing up suggests the need for immediate servicing. The prevalence of strong, foul odours emanating from a catch-basin could mean decomposing matter is blocking the flow of water – affecting its operation.

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.

If you’re located in the lower mainland, we offer service to Food Service and Food Production clients, including Grease Trap cleaning service, as well as food and organic waste collection and disposal. We offer commercial sanitary services, including holding tanks, treatment plants and sanitary pump chambers. Call Edenflo to set up the regularly scheduled maintenance cleaning of your sanitary pump chambers.

For those businesses with buildings to maintain, we offer storm drain and catch basin cleaning service, including “Lowboy” truck service , enabling us to access underground parkades and other hard to reach locations.

This allows us to unearth utility lines, underground pipes, and other services without disturbing them.

In addition to quick response when a problem arises, as your pipe service specialists, we’re able to offer expert preventative maintenance, so that you don’t have to solve problems, because you’ve avoided them.

It’s Still Dry in the Lower Mainland – Do I Need to Worry About my Catch Basin?

It’s been a dry summer and fall on the lower mainland. Dry conditions mean debris has less moisture content. Dry debris that has accumulated in your catch basins may still allow for a reasonable flow of wastewater through the system, but one big rain could change the picture.

It’s been a dry fall. Your catch basin still needs cleaning

Once that fall debris of leaves and twigs gains moisture, it will expand and spell trouble for your catch basins. If you haven’t scheduled your seasonal catch basin cleaning, now is the time to book!  Don’t wait until soggy leaves are clogging your drains and you wind up in a bad situation.

Your parking lot, underground parkade and basement are suspect to drainage issues if debris is allowed to accumulate in the system. The EdenFlo team can easily and efficiently clean your catch basins using one of our many pieces of specialized vacuum equipment that allows us to get at even the most challenging drains.
