Removal of trash and sediments that accumulate in the sump using a catch basin cleaner is one the simplest ways of cleaning. Other additional maintenance activities invariably happen when necessary. It includes making repairs to the catch basin’s brickwork, covers, frames as well as hoods.
To maintain the ability of catch basins to trap sediments and provide effective drainage for storm water, you need to clean the catch basin periodically.

The cause is not always an intrusion from the tree roots themselves; it is sometimes the soil collapsing down on the sewer lines due to pressure from the roots.
If there is a tree in the direct line of a sewer pipe, and it goes uninspected, severed joints and collapsed sections of piping may result. The damage may then be more widespread than localized in a single area.
A tree doesn’t have to be that close to a sewer pipe to cause trouble. Growing tree roots spread out as live trees seek out water sources and nutrients. Moist or leaking pipes are ideal for roots to grow around, penetrate the pipe lining, and grow inside, completely blocking sewer or water lines. Even the slightest pinhole or hairline crack is enough for the roots to get started.
