Sorry to keep you in suspense. I know you’ve been anxiously awaiting the next issue of “Gutter,” and I haven’t been very sensitive to your needs. Well, hopefully, this issue will be so fabulous it will make up for the delay. Let’s get started!
So far, the focus has been on storm drains, catch basin inserts, Drain Guards, and the like. But it’s high time we talked about dewatering… specifically, the Ultra-Dewatering Bag.
Back in the olden days, when folks were pumping water out of low-lying areas, they would put the discharge hose into a storm drain. That’s all fine and good for the water coming out of that low-lying area, but you and I both know that it ain’t just water that’s getting pumped out. There’s silt, sludge, debris, and the occasional flip-flop getting shot into the drain along with the water… and that just ain’t cool.
The Ultra-Dewatering Bag comes in several sizes and provides a simple and cost-effective method of removing those pollutants and allowing only water to enter the drain. Everything else is captured… even hydrocarbons!
The bag quickly attaches to the discharge hose (up to 4″ dia) and the heavy-duty geotextile material filters out pollutants so only water flows into drains or the surrounding soil/environment. Once the job is done, or the bag is full it can be hauled away or cut open and the contents emptied (either way, you should probably save the flip flop). Learn more.
