catch basin installation
The installation of both our catch basins and our sand traps are very similar to our trench drain installation. However, there are a few steps you must know in order to make sure its ran smoothly. Let’s discuss.
1. Ensure you know where you want your outlet height and location to be. We need to ensure that the distance is level between the basin outlet and where the piping is. This is done through trial and error as discussed in step 3.
2. Your basin hole must be dug 2-3 inches wider than the basin, and dug 3-4 inches deeper. This allows for your "filler" to get poured after placement. This “filler” could be concrete, sand, clay, or any other material that you may be using.
3. Place the 2-3 inches of your filler at the bottom of your catch basin hole. At this point, you need to ensure that your pipe connection is level. Once your outlet is lined up and you have the desired height on the surface, then you must connect your outlet piping immediately.
4. Fill around your basin with your material of choice. Ensure it fills all crevices and there is no air present. This allows for a long-lasting basin. It is advisable to allow 48 hours before driving over if you use concrete.
