Step 3 – Drain Pipe Catch Basins

The drain guard is simply a downspout catch basin that is installed about three feet above the ground. The drainage catch basin catches the last small debris pieces, yet still allows the water to run through into the downspout drain.

The catch basin (or drain guard) is easily cleaned by simply sliding out the basket and removing the few small pieces of debris. Since the down pipe catch basin is only about three feet above ground level, people of all ages and abilities can easily clean out the drain guard at ground level (as needed), without the need of using a ladder.
