Catch Basin Insert
The Drain Guard is engineered to filter stormwater waste (exceeding 80% sediment removal efficiency), keeping it out of stormwater systems and our waterways. As a storm drain filter, it removes contaminants like litter, sand, eroded soil, debris, fuel contaminants, and oil from runoff. The catch basin insert is made of geotextile fabric and its easy installation make it ideal for industrial facilities, construction sites, and parking lots. When used as a Best Management Practice (BMP) in Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plans, it helps comply with NPDES, 40 CFR 122.26 (1999). Installation of the Drain Guard is simple. To install the product, the grate must be raised so that the Drain Guard can be placed over the opening, before lowering the grate back into place.
