Frequently Asked Questions

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-X-Tex.

Ultra-X-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.

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.

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-X-Tex material, it must be disposed of in accordance with local regulations and requirements.

The Ultra-Drain Guard, Recycled Model is designed to be installed in drains up to 30″ x 40″.

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-X-Tex material for added hydrocarbon absorption.  You can also check out the Path to the Perfect Product to see what other products might be a good option.
