Beside this, what is the difference between a storm drain and a catch basin?
A: A catch basin or storm drain is a curbside drain with the sole function of collecting rainwater from our properties and streets and transporting it to local waterways through a system of underground piping, culverts and/or drainage ditches. Storm drains can also be found in parking lots and serve the same purpose.
Beside above, should I drill holes in my catch basin?
Re: Question about catch basins the bottom part is to catch dirt and debree to prevent it from plugging the pipes. you can drill a few leach holes to let the water drain from the bottom.
Here are the steps to installing a pop-up gutter drain system:
- Step 1: Dig a hole underneath your gutter downspout and place a catch basin in the hole.
- Step 2: Dig a trench from the catch basin to a curb, creek, alley, or other area where the runoff water can easily drain.
