The last thing any business owner wants to encounter is a problem with a catch basin drain or trench drain. These drains are important and serve an important function in parking lots, helping drain water runoff and prevent pooling water that can damage asphalt. For large asphalt surfaces, having catch basin drains are essential for preventing damage and the need for repairs.
All catch basins or storm drains will eventually deteriorate over time. This is because whenever water or salt water enters the joints between the steel casting and block or the mortar joints, it weakens the mortar significantly. Yearly inspections of your catch basins, as well as timely repairs can prevent you from having to pay costly future repairs. Sometimes all your catch basin requires is a replacement of a few blocks or bricks, or just adjusting a bent grate can keep your parking lot drainage system in working action.
