Reusable Drain Guards
A Catch Basin Guard for Sediment Control
Reusable drain guards are one of the largest available products for stormwater pollution control and containment of sediment and silt. Constructed from a heavy duty polypropylene material, our drain guards are able to contain up to 500 pounds of sediment. The catch basin guard is ideal for areas with demanding sediment or silt requirements, such as construction sites, facilities, or work areas.
Due to the large containment potential of these drain guards, each model features robust straps located along either side of the guard. Straps help to secure the product in place and make removal of the equipment easier. Reusable drain filter guards can be reused after sediment and materials have been removed.

Installation and Removal
Similar to our Standard Drain Guards, reusable models are intended for installation through the use of the drain grate. However, due to their large storage capacity, straps located on the sides of the guard will need to be buried for added stability during use.
- Remove the grate and clear the surrounding edges in preparation.
- Placed the drain guard into the drain.
- Replace the Grate. During this process, make sure that the straps located on the top portion of the guard remain outside of the grate and on the ground surface.
- Cover the Straps with Dirt to prevent items from snagging on the straps.
Due to the weight of the guard when full, barriers require extra equipment such as backhoes or forklifts for removal. These guards can be removed through the following process:
- Uncover straps
- Insert Bars through the straps/pockets
- Remove the Grate
- Lift the Guard out with available machinery
