Ultra-Drain Guard Oil & Sediment Model

Protect the water system from sediment and pollutants with Ultra-Drain Warden catch basin inserts.

The Ultra-Drain Guard Oil and Sediment Model is designed to filter stormwater waste and remove contaminants like litter, sand, and oil from stormwater flow. It’s ideal for industrial facilities, construction sites, and parking lots where stormwater runoff is likely to carry oil, eroded soil, debris, and fuel contaminants from cars. The filter is made of geotextile fabric, Ultra-Filter-Tex, and is easy to install.

Installation: Install the Ultra-Drain Guard easily by lifting the grate, placing the guard over the opening, and securing the fabric in place. This will prevent contaminants from entering most drain systems.

Project-specific models: 

Oil & Sediment Model (Part# CHUT9217/CHUT9356) — removes up to 3L of hydrocarbons as well as dirt, sand, and other contaminants.

Oil & Sediment Plus Model (Part# CHUT9219/9358) — the addition of      filter strips increases oil and grease absorption by 1.9L, offering a total capacity of 5L of hydrocarbon removal.

Trash & Debris Model (Part# CHUT9227) —designed specifically to catch larger items and floatables like leaves, cigarette butts, and paper goods.

FAQ

How much water can the Ultra-Drain Guard handle?

When new, the Ultra-Drain Guard has a flow rate of 3,468LPM/m2 However, the unit has been designed with overflow ports.  These allow the Ultra-Drain Guard a flow rate of 909LPM which will prevent any flooding or ponding during extreme rain events.  Any water that goes through the overflow is essentially untreated.

Does this product work with synthetic oils?

The material called needle-punched geotextile can soak up synthetic oils. However, the Ultra-Filter-Tex material cannot soak up synthetics, it’s designed specifically for hydrocarbon absorption only.

How long will an Ultra-Drain Guard last?

The lifespan of an Ultra-Drain Guard after installation depends on several factors, including rainfall intensity and pollutant volume. Inspecting the unit after each significant rain event is recommended to evaluate its performance.

Can the Ultra-Drain Guard be reused?

If the Ultra-Drain Guard is filled with sand, silt, and sediment or has collected debris, it can be removed, emptied and replaced. However, if it has been saturated with oil, gas or other hydrocarbons, it is recommended to dispose of the unit and replace it with a new one. This is because these pollutants can be flushed out during heavy rain events, contaminating the surrounding environment. Replacing the unit is a safer option to avoid potential environmental hazards.

Are Ultra-Drain Guards difficult to install?

Usually, the most difficult part of installing an Ultra-Drain Guard is the handling of the catch basin’s grating.  Depending on the area, these grates can be large and heavy and therefore a challenge to lift/move.  For that reason, a second set of hands is recommended.  The rest of the installation is quick and easy.

What are the straps sewn into the top of the Ultra-Drain Guard used for?

The straps on an Ultra-Drain Guard are used to remove it from the catch basin. Before lifting the grate, the lifting straps sewn into the top of the unit should be fished out and brought up through the drain’s grating. Then, a piece of rebar, steel rod, or a shovel or broom handle can be inserted through each set of straps. This way, when the grating is lifted, the Ultra-Drain Guard will be lifted with it instead of dropping into the catch basin.

Do I have to trim the skirt after I’ve installed the Ultra-Drain Guard?

Leaving excess material after placing the grate is beneficial as it acts as a pre-filter and removes pollutants. It also makes it easier to reinstall Ultra-Drain Guard in the future. However, if trimming is desired, it can be easily done with heavy-duty scissors or a utility knife.
