Trouble Shooters works closely with many commercial customers to provide catch basin cleaning. From underground apartment parking basins to outdoor mall basins, our fleet of pumping and flushing vehicles can do it all. We own all our vehicles and are often called in for our expertise and equipment by other local plumbers. We are the go to solution in the GTA for commercial catch basin cleaning in Toronto. Our in-house team also specializes in other services such as hydro jetting and backflow preventer installation and testing.
Catch basins are intended to hold leaves, dirt, and debris traveling with rain run-off on the surrounding ground. By keeping these foreign materials out of the outlet pipe it prevents overflow during heavy periods of rain.
A clog can happen when smaller materials like food wrappers, plastics, other common litter, and dirt get washed into the basin. Over time this material can accumulate and cause the connection to the sewer to clog. Resulting in the water not being able to drain and causing the basin to overflow.
Another common reason catch basins clog is a lack of maintenance. Without proper cleaning, a clog can cause water to flood the surrounding area causing health and safety hazards for vehicles or pedestrians. Scheduling preventative maintenance on catch basins is one way to avoid injury caused by negligence. Trouble Shooters recommends that businesses clean out their catch basins at least every 2 years.

Over time and consistent environmental pressures, the structural foundation of a catch basin can become weak and prone to cracks. Especially here in Canada, the harsh winter can take its toll. Moisture in the surrounding soil can cause damage from temperature fluxuation resulting in the surrounding soil expanding, contracting and ultimately shifting around the basin. These shifts cause either inward pressure on the basin or shallow support.
Additionally, if the basin is not properly supported by the surrounding soil it can start to tilt unevenly. This results in the basin getting tension cracks making it easier for water to cause further damage, breaking the outlet or inlet pipe, or cause the top grate to become very uneven creating a hazardous environment.
