Maintaining Your Parking Lot Catch Basin in Good Repair Keeps Customers Safe

Prepare Your Parking Lot

When wet weather hits, catch basins are your pavements first line of defense. Catch basins drain water and debris that, without it, would sit on your lot. Not only is standing water unprofessional and inconvenient for potential clients and customers, but it also damages your asphalt as it creates cracks. The longer you allow water to stand on your asphalt, the larger the problem you're going to have in the future.


How Does a Catch Basin Work?

A catch basin is a concrete conduit to a storm drain system. Water flows into the basin, collecting until it reaches a pipe. This pipe will then lead the water out to your local storm drain system where it will be treated or a stream.


Why is Maintenance Essential?

The GTA presents your parking lot with a lot of challenging wet weather. Whether it’s the heavy rains of spring, the snow and ice of winter or the clumps of soggy leaves in fall, your pavement is bombarded with moisture. Given these factors, a frequent cause of a catch basins deterioration is water erosion, the expansion and contraction of the asphalt through temperature fluctuations, as well as salt and vehicle chemicals. Additionally, the catch basin, like all things, will age with time and use. Heavy traffic even plays a part.
