Here Are 8 Steps For Proper Catch Basin Installation

Installing a catch basin can solve many drainage problems whether in your residential or in a commercial parking lot. This can also help to keep debris such as trash and branches from clogging your sewer and prevents drainage problems.


First of all, we will choose the best location where water collects easily and insert a stake in the center to mark the location for the installation of catch basin. After choosing locations for your catch basin, the best piping routes will be determined that will slope downward slightly.


Secondly, we will start digging trenches for the pipes. It can be done with the use of a trencher and a trenching shovel. With a trenching hoe, dig low and wide enough for your pipes at least an 8-inch deep trench, dumping the soil on the tarp. The outlet should line up perfectly with the trench.


Next, as soon as the trenches have been dug, you can begin to start the installation of piping and basin. Before you start placing the basin in the hole, make sure that you have installed the adapter or plug that will connect it to pipes.


There are various options for securing your catch basin: gravel stone/ concrete. Concrete offers better protection from distortion and generally it helps to extend the life of your basin. These are usually more expensive basins. You will difficult to work if you do not have experienced or professional people. Concrete techniques include pouring into a mold before lowering the basin and then pouring the concrete around the basin will create longer and better longevity.


When using gravel or stone, add a layer in the bottom of the hole, before placing the basin on the ground. Attach the grate using the correct screwdriver.


Once the basin installation of catch basin is completed, we connect the pipes to the basin’s inlet and outlet. If using PVC pipes they will be press fitted while corrugated pipes will snap and screw in. Complete the pipe network, securing them with glue or tape where it’s needed.


Before back-filling begins you will need to test the system to ensure there are no holes, no leaks, holes or any other problems. This procedure can easily be done by pouring water directly into the basin or pipes.


The last step in the process is backfilling the trench and holes. The soil must be compacted perfectly because any voids will cause the system to sink, and result in drainage problems around your surface.

Your landscape drainage system can be improved exponentially with the use of catch basins. A properly installed and cleaned catch basin is a huge asset to any property.
