Storm Drain Catch Basin Filters


Storm drain filters are a practical tool in keeping sediment, debris and oil out of our water ways and a valuable source of storm water pollution prevention.  Effortless to install, simply remove the current drain grate, place the filter over the drain and replace the drain grate. Excess fabric can be cut away with a utility knife.


  • Prevents water pollution
  • Simple to install
  • Easy to use

The drain filters were designed especially for industrial facilities, construction sites, parking lots, and any high traffic area that may have problems with trash and pollutants.

Catch basins have a lower pocket to catch debris, and is lined with filters that absorb oil and grease as water passes through the filter. According to a study conducted by the University of California, these drain filters were able to strain 98.31% of fats, grease, and oils out of pass through water, and even filtered 81.6% of lead and 54.3% of copper out of the same pass through water. In case there is a surge of water, the catch basins also feature by-pass vents in order that no back-up should occur, for excess water to be able to still pass through the drains.
