Catch Basin Cleaning – How We Can Help Your Business

States in the US require multi-development projects and their parking spaces to have storm water management systems. State policies also require that these systems be cleaned and maintained on a regular basis.

Diamondback offers catch basin cleaning and parking space drainage cleaning. We also provide maintenance programs and have the required experience and licensing to comply with the regulations implemented by the state of Arizona and in particular, for quality services to businesses and homes in Flagstaff.


Catch Basin and Sewer Cleaning Techniques

catch basin cleaningWe will clean your basin at a time that’s convenient for you. What we usually do is examine the entire storm system, not just the basin, to ensure optimum performance. Our technicians use the following cleaning techniques:

  • Hydro-Jetting

This cleaning technique is a reliable method of flushing out unwanted materials from systems. First, we inspect the interior of the system using a camera. This is to check if there are weak spots or cracks on the walls or pipes. This is because hydro-jetting uses highly-pressurized water that might worsen the problem if there are already cracks there.

Whenever there are hard to remove materials, we recommend hydro-jetting. Things that are hard to remove include sludge, grease and tree roots.

The maximum force of water that can be applied is 60,000 psi which is enough to completely free basin walls and floors of dirt, debris and oils.

We use nozzles of different sizes (1.5 inches to 8 inches). These nozzles do the job of directing water to the walls.


  • Hydro-Excavation

We also do hydro-excavation services for situations where there is a need to cut through stuck soil. This method gives a couple of benefits.

First, industry insiders have long known that this method is far more efficient than mechanical methods in terms of damage and safety control. When there are underground pipes or cables to be protected, hydro-excavation ensures that they are left unmoved or broken. This results to less expense and fast completion of jobs.

In basin cleaning, consider hydro-excavation rather than the mechanical ones. This is especially important if there are structures around that need to be protected.


  • High Power Vacuum

Are there huge quantities of granular materials to collect, not only in the basin, but also in the surrounding area? If this is the case, you can opt for using our heavy duty vacuum cleaners. Our vacuum equipment comes with the following features:

  • Soundproofing hood
  • Safety and vacuum regulation valve
  • Security filter cartridge
  • Automatic filter cleaning system
  • Exhaust silencer
  • Level indicator

We advise that you use this method if you are dealing with stones, foliage, and other waste materials in large quantities. Our vacuum tools are carefully selected and the best ones that the market can offer. They are extremely easy to maintain and easy to operate.


  • Street Drainage

Excessive raining and clogged systems need to be addressed immediately. To prevent clogging, regular inspection of the catch basin and inlet structures must be done.

We advise communities to:

  • Immediately repair deterioration threatening structural integrity
  • Clean the system before the sump is 40% full.
  • Clean inlets and catch basins before the wet season.
  • Keep a record of the amounts of waste collected.

We can help you in maintaining your systems – especially at times when sudden flooding occurs. Our technicians are on standby 24 hours a day.


  • Root Cutting

Root intrusions into conveyance lines are also a common problem in the US. In fact, authorities in the country consider sanitary sewer overflows stemming from tree root blockages as a serious threat to the environment and to people.

Our pump trucks facilitate the use of a root cutter powered by water pressure. A blade, similar to the size of the catch basin, is connected to a motor-jetting nozzle combination. The forward propelling action of the nozzle on the rotating blade effectively removes roots and grease buildup.
