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.
how do you bury a drain pipe? Dig a trench about 6 inches wider than the drain pipe you plan to bury and dig the hole deep enough so that the drainpipe sits 3 inches below grade. Weisman recommends extending the trench at least 8 feet from the downspout, if there's available space.
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.
How do I build a gutter drainage?
