Keep oil and sediment from entering catch basins with environmentally-friendly inserts
Recycled is the new black. Okay, maybe not. But it is certainly a buzzword in stormwater and other environmental circles. The great thing about this recycled product is that it’s also extremely effective.
The Ultra-Filter-Tex material that the recycled model is made from is excellent at removing oil, gas and other hydrocarbons from water flow. It’s also hydrophilic (attracted to water), so it allows water to pass through very quickly. An important characteristic in a catch basin insert.
The recycled model is made with Ultra-Filter-Tex material. This 100% recycled material is excellent at removing oil, gas and other hydrocarbons from water flow.
- Made completely out of Ultra-Filter-Tex material — 100% recycled content.
- Superior water flow rate (151 gal/ft.2), together with built-in overflow ports prevents ponding and flooding.
- Ultra-Filter-Tex material captures silt and sediment from runoff in addition to absorbing hydrocarbons.
- Quick and easy installation — simply lift catch basin grate, lower Ultra-Drain Guard in place, and replace the grate.

Extend the life of your Ultra-Drain Guard!
By simply dropping a small tablet into each storm drain, you can increase the oil absorbing and removal effectiveness of your Ultra-Drain Guard. Ultra-Archaea are oil-eating microbes that will consume any hydrocarbons in the Ultra-Drain Guard as well as inside the catch basin. Click here for more information.
Frequently Asked Questions
What's different about this Ultra-Drain Guard model compared to the others?
From a dimensional standpoint, the recycled model is the same as the oil & sediment model, but instead of the geotextile material used for other models, we make the recycled model completely from Ultra-Filter-Tex.
Why do you use Ultra-Filter-Tex for this product?
Ultra-Filter-Tex removes oil and other hydrocarbons much faster than traditional absorbents. A polypropylene sorbent material will not allow water to freely pass through it. Oil will absorb at the surface of a polypropylene absorbent, and the polypropylene will eventually blind over and the center will not absorb any oil.
Does this product work with synthetic oils?
Ultra-Filter-Tex material is designed for the absorption of hydrocarbons and will not absorb synthetics.
Do I have to take the grate out of the storm drain to install this Ultra-Drain Guard?
Yes. While we do have some stormwater products that do not require the grate to be lifted, the Ultra-Drain Guard, Recycled Model does require that you first lift the grate.
What do I do with the Ultra-Drain Guard when I'm done with it?
If the unit has only been used to remove dirt, sand and sediment from incoming stormwater flow, it can be disposed of like any other trash/waste. If oil/grease or any other hydrocarbons have been absorbed by the Ultra-Filter-Tex material, it must be disposed of in accordance with local regulations and requirements.
What size drains will this Ultra-Drain Guard fit?
The Ultra-Drain Guard, Recycled Model is designed to be installed in drains up to 30″ x 40″.
What other products could be used instead of the Ultra-Drain Guard, Recycled Model?
You could achieve similar results by using one of our other Ultra-Drain Guards. If there is any kind of requirement for some recycled content, the oil & sediment plus model uses strips of Ultra-Filter-Tex material for added hydrocarbon absorption.
