Ultra-Drain Guards®

Microbe Boom Model

Capture pollutants above the drain, clean and bioremediate below the drain

The perfect stormwater management product has yet to be invented. Even under optimal conditions, no product is going to capture 100% of pollutants.
For those oils and gases that make it past the Ultra-Drain Guard and into the catch basin below, we've added a Microbe Boom. The oil-eating microbes housed in this boom activate when exposed to water. Once activated they consume the hydrocarbons in the water and leave behind only harmless, natural byproducts.
The Ultra-Drain Guard, Microbe Boom Model provides protection above AND below the storm drain.
Key Features: 
  • The dual component product includes Drain Guard to capture pollutants entering drain and a Microbe Boom to clean up the inside of the catch basin.
  • The Ultra-Drain Guard catch basin insert captures dirt, sediment, oil, grease and other pollutants and stops them from entering the water system.
  • The Ultra-Microbe Boom includes a 4’ tether and is tied to a grommet in the bottom of the Drain Guard. The Boom floats on the water and oil-eating Microbes are released to consume any hydrocarbons present. (Click here for more information on Ultra-Microbes)
  • Helps comply with NPDES, 40 CFR 122.26 (1999) and TMDL requirements.
