How to Install a Catch Basin?
Before installation, first we determine the best location for your catch basin. A catch basin should sit in the lowest place where the water gets collected in the drainage field.

#2: Excavation: Next, contact power companies to locate buried utilities. Dig low and wide enough for the proper depth with the help of trencher or trenching shovel.
#3: Bedding: Use gravel or stone to add a layer at the bottom of the basin. The base must be firm and compacted to prevent settling of the heavy basins. You should follow the local specifications for depth and compaction of the catch basins.
#4: Clearance: Remove all the large rocks or other materials to create a minimum clearance of 3 inches around the catch basin.
#5: Installation: Install each piece of the precast separately. Check the alignment of the piece before adding the next piece.
