CATCH BASIN RINGS

 

 

 

 

Understanding catch basins

- Not all catch basins are the same and repairs vary. Most common catch basins today are built on catch basin rings and are the easy ones to fix and is what we call a standard catch basin. Some other types are built on the older system which are on a brick and mortar system.

- The older system repair normally requires excavation and exposing the whole catch basin and removing all the bricks and rebuild with modern catch basin rings.

- Other type of catch basins are called custom catch basin repair, which means the cast iron frame is sitting on a pre cast concrete drain. This requires professional hands on work, which takes more time than your standard ones. we would have to saw cut around the basin and remove the asphalt and excavate and expose the concrete basin and apply a hand concrete breaker  chisel them and then place catch basin rings as required and parge any gaps of the chisel work.

- Prices vary from catch basin to catch basin and depends on how many catch basins and what type of repairs are required.

- For a free estimate give us a call and we will come out and open each one of them to see what type and what conditions they are in.

CATCH BASIN DRAIN PIPES

 BASIN CONCRETE REPAIRS

 What type of repairs you may need

Name: Old Catch Basin Rebuild

Before catch basin rings, catch basins were built with bricks in order to get there desired elevation. Here you will see how it looks and how we repair them.

 

 

 

 

What type of repairs you may need

Name: Standard Catch Basin 

Standard Catch Basin Repair, which requires only the asphalt around it to be cut out and repaved.

Scenarios  sunken or raised asphalt around the catch basin which is limiting water from entering the catch basin.

NAME: Drain Repair 

Catch Basin raising or lowering, and repairing inlet pipe in the catch basin

Scenarios  sunken or raised asphalt around the catch basin which is limiting water from entering the catch basin which requires adjusting by adding or removing the spacers where the cast iron cover sits or just the asphalt and drain repair.

There is a hole next to the catch basin. Why? - Chances are the sub base made its way through,around the outside of the inlet drain pipe. This happens due to a number of things. Improper drain installation. Inproper sub base compaction.  Drain pipe is smaller than the hole where it gets installed at the bottom of catch basin and they forgot to parge it properly from the inside and from the out side where sub base is. Also Frost and salt damages over time etc.

 

 

WINTER REPAIRS 

 

 

 

 What type of repairs you may need

Name: Catch Basin raising or lowering

Scenarios  sunken or raised asphalt around the catch basin which is limiting water from entering the catch basin which requires adjusting by adding or removing the spacers where the cast iron cover sits.

 

NAME: Custom Repairs

Scenarios  In some cases, your catch basin could be sitting on the concrete basin which has no catch basin rings. This type of repair is more time consuming and requires experaince and skill. The concrete basins structure needs to be saw cut and lowered by chipping at it, with                PRECISE PRECISION.

 

One wrong hit or cut, could crack the basins form which water will leak into the sub base creating more problems. Bottom line, you would have to replace the whole entire basin which is a costly repair. Once cracked, a simple parge wont fix it.

Why does this happen? Due to frost and pavement settlement over the years.

Why do I not have a standard modern catch basin? Grades were limited during construction of pavement.

HERE IS A FEW PICTURES WHICH WILL ILLUSTRATE THIS TYPE OF REPAIR.
