The all too familiar cracking of the asphalt around catch basins can be a constant nuisance. Addressing the source of the cracking instead of just repairing the asphalt pavement around the catch basin will help to maintain a solid structure for years ahead, eliminating the need for regular catch basin repairs..
Catch basins are a very important element in parking lots and are easy to overlook. Catch basins help rid the parking lot of water during a rainfall and snow melt. Getting rid of water as fast as possible is the object of the game. This quick drainage process is imperative in preventing major damage to a parking lot and avoilding serious liability.
Water cannot drain effectively if it encounters impediments such as the side lip of a basin grate. Drainage can be impeded by sunken areas around catch basins, clogged catch basins or improperly graded asphalt.
