Catch Basins & Channel Drains
What they are
Catch basins and channel drains are in-ground drain installations designed to capture stormwater around your home.
When used in conjunction with a comprehensive drainage system, they help collect stormwater and channel it to a suitable location.
Both catch basins and channel drains can be built to integrate into most all locations and applications.
- Removes standing water from your landscape, driveway, patio, or walkway
- Provides for the collection of small to large amounts of surface water
- Helps reduce ground saturation caused by standing water
- Custom catch basins eliminate the undesirable “holding” of water that’s common among prefabricated drain boxes.
- Custom catch basins can allow for any level of surface traffic.
- Provides drainage relief for entire areas around your home and yard
From pre-fabricated plastic to completely custom
Catch basins come in all shapes, sizes, and materials. In addition to typical plastic drain boxes, we design and build custom channel drains and catch basins for specific drainage applications. Some have flat, plastic grates or atrium grates. Others have steel grates and may be rated for light, medium, or heavy vehicle traffic.
Similar products, different applications
Channel drains are like elongated catch basins. They’re best suited to hard surfaces, like driveways or patios. You’ve probably seen channel drains in driveways – think long, grated drains that stretch from one end of the concrete to the other.
Quality craftsmanship. Minimal impact.
Our team provides the experienced craftsmanship needed to install these products within the landscape with minimal impact. We carefully adapt catch basins and channel drains to your lawns, landscape beds, and solid surfaces. As required, we also apply proper, localized grading to ensure the long-term dependability of each product.
Easy to maintain
When properly designed, built, and installed, catch basin and channel drain maintenance is easy. Simply check them periodically to ensure the surface of the drain grates are clear. That way, water can continue to enter the drain. It’s a task easily completed by your landscapers during their regular visit.
Stormwater Collection & Removal
When problem water pools around your home, enters your basement or crawlspace, or accumulates around your property, properly structured catch basins collect the water efficiently. We often install catch basins and channel drains as part of a complete stormwater collection and removal system.
Custom PVC Drainage Systems
As part of a complete PVC drainage system, catch basins and channel drains can play a pivotal role in capturing water and channeling it away. When it makes sense, our team incorporates catch basins or channel drains into your overall drainage solution.
