Storm Drain

Storm Drain

A storm drain, storm sewer (US), storm water drain (Australia and New Zealand) or drainage well system or simply a drain or drain system is designed to drain excess rain and ground water from paved streets, parking lots, sidewalks, and roofs. A storm drain can vary in design from small residential dry wells to large municipal systems. They are fed by street gutters on most motorways, freeways and other busy roads, as well as towns in areas which experience heavy rainfall, flooding and coastal towns which experience regular storms.

Storm Drain Inlet

Storm Drain

Scottsdale storm drain cover

There are two main types of storm drain (storm sewer) inlets; side inlets and grated inlets. Side inlets are located adjacent to the curb  and rely on the ability of the opening under the back stone or lintel to capture flowinto the storm drain. They are usually depressed at the invert of the channel to improve capture capacity.Grated inlets have gratings or grids to prevent large objects and debris from falling into the storm drain sewer system. However, their bars are fairly widely spaced so that the flow of water is not impeded. Consequently, many small objects can fall through into the storm drain.

Area drain hydro-jet

Many of these small objects are caught by the catch basin, or sump, which lies immediately below the grating. Water from the top of the catch basin drains into the sewer properly. The catch basin serves much the same function as the “trap” in household waste water plumbing in trapping objects.

In the United States, unlike the trap, the catch basin does not necessarily prevent sewer gases such as hydrogen sulfide and methane from escaping. However in the United Kingdom, where they are called gulley-pots, they are designed as true water-filled traps and do block the egress of gases and rodents coming from the storm drain.

Most catch basins will contain stagnant water during the drier parts of the year and can be used by mosquitoes for breeding. The performance of catch basins at removing sediment and other pollutants depends on the design of the catch basin (e.g., the size of the sump), and routine maintenance of a storm drain to retain the storage available in the sump to capture sediment. Municipalities typically have large vacuum trucks that perform this task.

Catch basins act as pretreatment for other treatment practices, such as retention basins, by capturing large sediments.

Storm Drain

Urban runoff being discharged to coastal waters

Storm Drain Piping

Storm drain pipes can come in many different shapes (rectangular, square, bread-loaf shaped, oval, inverted pear-shaped, and more commonly, circular). Storm drain systems may have many different features including waterfalls, stairways, balconies and pits for catching rubbish, sometimes called Gross Pollutant Traps (GPTs). Several different materials can also be used, such as brick, concrete, metal and even plastic in some cases.

Storm Drain Outlet

Area Drain Hydro-JettingMost storm drains have a single large exit at their point of discharge (often covered by a grating) into a canal, river, lake, reservoir, sea or ocean. Other than catch basins, typically there are no treatment facilities in the piping system. A small storm drain may discharge into individual dry wells. A storm drain may be interconnected using slotted pipe, to make a larger dry well system. A storm drain may discharge into man-made excavations known as recharge basins or retention ponds.

Environmental impacts

Storm Drain runoff effects our water quality

The first flush from urban runoff can be extremely dirty. Storm water may become contaminated while running down the road or other impervious surface, or from lawn chemical run-off, before entering the drain.

Hydro-Jet  Area DrainWater running off these impervious surfaces tends to pick up gasoline, motor oil, heavy metals, trash and other pollutants from roadways and parking lots, as well as fertilizers and pesticides from lawns. Roads and parking lots are major sources of nickel, copper, zinc, cadmium, lead and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons , which are created as combustion byproducts of gasoline and other fossil fuels. Roof runoff contributes high levels of synthetic organic compounds and zinc (from galvanized gutters). Fertilizer use on residential lawns, parks and golf courses is a significant source of nitrates and phosphorus.

Separation of undesired runoff can be done by installing devices within the storm sewer system. These devices are new to the market and can only be installed with new development or during major upgrades. They are referred to as oil-grit separators (OGS) or oil-sediment separators (OSS). They consist of a specialized manhole chamber, and use the water flow and/or gravity to separate oil and grit.

Reducing storm drain water flow

Runoff into storm sewers can be minimized by including sustainable urban drainage systems (UK term) or low impact development practices (US term) into municipal plans. To reduce storm water from rooftops, flows from eaves troughs (rain gutters and downspouts) may be infiltrated into adjacent soil, rather than discharged into the storm sewer system.Area Drain Hydro-Jetting Storm water runoff from paved surfaces can be directed to unlined ditches (sometimes called swales or bioswales) before flowing into the storm sewers, again to allow the runoff to soak into the ground. Permeable paving materials can be used in building sidewalks, driveways and in some cases, parking lots, to infiltrate a portion of the storm water volume. In many areas detention tanks are required to be installed inside a property and are used to temporarily hold rainwater runoff during heavy rains and restrict the outlet flow to the public sewer. This lessens the risk of the public sewer being overburdened during a heavy rain. An overflow outlet may also be utilized which connects higher on the outlet side of the detention tank. This overflow would prevent the detention tank from completely filling up. By restricting the flow of water in this way and temporarily holding the water in a detention tank public sewers are far less likely to become surcharged.

Storm drain in relation to sanitary sewer systems

A storm drain is separate and distinct from sanitary sewer systems. The separation of a storm drain from sanitary sewers helps to prevent sewage treatment plants becoming overwhelmed by infiltration/inflow during a rainstorm, which can result in untreated sewage being discharged into the environment.

Hydro Jetting Area DrainMany storm drain systems are designed to drain the storm water, untreated, into rivers or streams. Many local governments conduct public awareness campaigns about this, lest waste be dumped into the storm drain system.In the city of Cleveland, Ohio, for example, all new catch basins installed have inscriptions on them not to dump any waste, and usually include a fish imprint as well. Trout Unlimited Canada recommends that a yellow fish symbol be painted next to existing storm drains.

Grease Trap Installation & Repairs

Grease Trap Installation

What is a Grease Trap?

Grease traps are passive devices required by local municipalities to stop grease, fat, oil, wax or debris from entering the city’s sanitary sewer system.  Such materials cause
blockages in the system, which cause backups and overflows. They are designed to
separate grease from waste water so that it can be removed before it enters the sewer
system.  All restaurants, caterers, school cafeterias and other commercial cooking
facilities must, by law, avoid discharging grease into the municipal sewer system.  In
order to function properly grease traps must be pumped and cleaned on a regularly
scheduled basis.  restaurant repairs

 

 

 

Grease Trap Sizing Calculations

Please note that the following information is provided as a guide only, and is not to be used as a substitute for a professional evaluation of any business. A grease trap must be located at least 10 feet from hot water faucets. All hot water must cool to 120° F before entering the grease trap. The size of the grease trap must comply with the Uniform Plumbing Code. Any sink or disposal that can carry grease must empty into the grease trap.

Sizing a grease trap should always be left to a trained professional. This section is intended as a guide to familiarize the reader with some basic sizing rules. Requirements are determined by the volume of waste water that the grease trap  can handle compared to demand. Unit selection depends on the type desired and its capacity rating in gpm. The Plumbing and Drainage Institute (PDI) defines standard sizes that are roughly equivalent to gpm of flow.

commercial grease trap scottsdaleThe National Plumbing Code lists drainage fixture-unit values of various plumbing fixtures based on drain outlet or trap size. These values are converted to gpm discharge rates assuming 7.5 gpm discharge to represent one fixture-unit. This information is illustrated below.The discharge rate will help to determine the model needed.

To determine the size grease trap required, take the GPM equivalent for all the drains in the system and add them up.  This will give you the required GPM for the entire system.  For example, take a double sink with two 2″ drains.  The sizing chart indicates that each of these drains will produce 22.5 gpm discharge, making the total requirement 45 gpm

Hydro Jetting Grease

 

Why do I have to have a grease trap?

 

Fat Oil and Grease wreaks all kinds of havoc on municipal waste water systems, which is why local governments require commercial kitchens to have a grease trap installed. Most municipalities will have a minimum amount of FOG that is acceptable in the water leaving an establishment. IF these minimums are exceeded, fines can be imposed.

How does a  grease trap work?

A grease trap slow down the flow of water coming from drains, allowing the water/ grease time to cool. This cooling causes the grease to coagulate and float to the top, while other, heavier solids, fall to the bottom of the trap. The remaining water is free to pass through on to the city sewer lines.

How do I maintain my grease trap?

restaurant grease trap repairProper grease trap maintenance is very crucial in order to have an efficiently operating grease trap. Many problems can occur if the levels of collected FOG and solids are not monitored. Problems such as drain line blockages and back-ups, foul odors and even worse, too much FOG being deposited into the city sewer lines, which can lead to big fines.

Depending on the size, there are different ways of cleaning the grease trap. Many state and local governments have ordinances requiring that a grease trap be pumped out every so often, so it is important to first check with local government to find out this particular criteria. However, aside from any mandatory pump-outs that may be required, there are other methods of cleaning a grease trap that should be considered.

Many restaurants/ kitchens that have smaller grease traps often have their maintenance staff handle any grease trap maintenance. This could typically involve manually shoveling and vacuuming out the accumulated FOG and solids and disposing with the solid waste. It is important that if this is the step taken, any liquid waste be absorbed by an absorbent, like kitty litter, to ensure that the waste is picked up.

Most restaurants with larger grease traps will typically employ the services of professional recyclers/ haulers to pump-out and maintain the grease trap when the FOG accumulation gets too high. This is obviously easiest, but can be pretty costly especially if it is a weekly or monthly process.

The best grease trap maintenance routine that any restaurant or kitchen can implement to control the FOG build up and reduce the necessity of pump-outs is the use of a bacteria additive. Grease trap bacteria aids in the reduction of FOG and other organic waste by biologically breaking down and digesting the waste leaving behind only carbon dioxide and water. This can significantly reduce the need for frequent pump-outs along with controlling odors emitted by the grease trap. Additionally, as some of the bacteria are washed out with the water, it will serve to benefit the municipal waste water-receiving stream. Grease trap bacteria is available in varying types. Most common is probably the liquid form, which can be poured down the drains or applied directly to the trap. Another popular style is bacteria blocks, which are slow dissolve blocks that are suspended from a rope and submerged into the grease trap. Depending on the size of the block and grease trap, these blocks will last up to 4 weeks at a time. Powder varieties are also available and generally take up less shelf space and are cheaper to ship. Finally, grease traps can be set up with automatic injection pumps to automatically pump bacteria into the grease trap at set intervals for virtually maintenance free treatment.

In addition to keeping FOG minimized in the grease trap, bacteria can also serve to benefit drain lines in the kitchens as well. By mixing up a solution of the bacteria and pouring down all drain lines, the plumbing can be kept clear of FOG build-up that results in slow draining sinks and foul odors.

Other things to note to ensure good grease trap maintenance are to be sure and keep records of when maintenance procedures are done, such as pump outs, clean outs, when bacteria was added, etc. Also, staff should be encouraged to not just rinse everything down the drains. When possible, encourage the staff to throw solids and other waste in the trash. Do not hot rinse (hot flush) the drains and grease trap. This means running hot water through the lines to flush out any grease or other build up. This can prevent the grease from cooling in the trap and cause grease to be flushed into the sewer lines resulting in fines from the city. Finally, be weary of enzyme only products. There are many products on the market that are made up of enzymes and surfactants that simply liquefy the grease to get it out of the grease trap. All this does is cause more issues down stream at the waste water treatment level due to the eventual coagulation and solidification of this grease. It is for this reason that many municipalities are prohibiting the use of such products.

Gas Leak Testing & Repairs

Gas Leak 101 Any Gas Leak is dangerous!

A gas leak can be very dangerous inside or outside of your home or business.

Since natural gas has no scent, a strong odor-ant that smells like rotten eggs is added to help you detect a possible gas leak. If you smell a natural gas leak:

  • Remove any cigarettes or other smoking materials from the area, and then extinguish them.
  • Do NOT use matches, lighters or other open flames or activate light switches, electrical appliances, flashlights, doorbells or even garage door openers, as they could create a spark.
  • Do NOT use telephones (cellular included) on the premises where the leak is suspected. Phones can create a spark.
  • Evacuate everyone from the building immediately and then call Southwest Gas  from a safe location at  1-800-528-4277 or call 911. Let us know where you are.
  • Do not re-enter the building until Southwest Gas has declared it to be safe.

gas leak/pipe repairFor your safety, Southwest Gas will promptly investigate suspected a natural gas leak as a FREE service 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Other Signs of a Potential Natural Gas Leak
Sight – look for dirt blowing into the air, persistent bubbling in standing water, or discolored or dead vegetation around the pipeline area.

Sound – listen for any unusual hissing or roaring sound.

A gas leak itself is not always the killer that consumes people, it is carbon monoxide poisoning that is caused by a gas leak.

When most people hear the word gas they automatically assume it is like gasoline, which you put in your car. Natural gas on the other hand, unlike gasoline, contains no liquid or mass. It is odorless, shapeless and colorless so most times people don’t realize it is even in the air until it’s almost too late. Gas companies add the rotten egg odor just so the gas leak is easier detected.

 

gas line repairNatural gas is considered a fossil fuel that is produced by organic materials in the earth which is compressed over time and most theories believe that the organic materials that make up the gas are animal and plant remains. It is compressed over time and it becomes a burnable fuel. Natural gas is highly flammable and is made up of 90% methane but is also made up of propane, butane, ethane and other gases.

 

We use natural gas for many things like cooking, drying clothes and it also provides heat and electricity to our homes. Most people take it for granted until they are faced with an emergency regarding a gas leak in or around their own homes. The average person does not realize how dangerous a natural gas leak can be. Natural gas also contains one of the most deadly elements that are carbon monoxide.

gas leak repairHave you ever accidentally left your burner on without a flame and realized that you smelled something like rotten eggs? Or have you smelled it anywhere else inside or outside of your home? Did you realize that if your home fills up just enough that even the static electricity caused by walking across your carpeting could cause an explosion?

 

There have been cases in history where people did not realize that there was a gas leak in their home and their homes have exploded when they flipped on a light switch. An explosion is not the only hazard that a natural gas leak can cause. It can also cause carbon monoxide poisoning.

 A gas leak can cause carbon dioxide poisoning

When there is the existence of carbon monoxide in the home there are a few symptoms you need to look out for. Flu like symptoms such as headaches, dizziness, tiredness and nausea are all signs that you could have CO poisoning. If several people suddenly get unexplainable ill at the same time and if you feel better when leaving your home then it would be a good idea to check it out. CO poisoning can get so bad as to cause death with prolonged exposure. gas leak repairsCO poisoning can cause impaired judgment, poor memory and loss of coordination. It is basically starving your brain of oxygen. CO poisoning kills approximately 2000 people each year. Carbon monoxide is easily detected when you have a carbon monoxide detector placed in your home to help keep you and your family safe. If you suspect that you have carbon monoxide poisoning or your CO detector is going off then call your local fire department immediately then get out your family and yourself out of the house.

 

Although a natural gas leak is a hazard itself it is its components that are the most deadly. A natural gas leak can also be a hazard if it is leaking on the outside of your home as well. Some ways of detecting a gas leak is if you smell the rotten egg smell, see dirt blowing or see bubbles in a puddle and then of course hear a hissing sound near your home then call your gas company immediately. If you happen to smell or hear anything hissing inside of your home then avoid using your phone or turning on any lights then call the gas company from another source besides inside your home. It is better to be safe than sorry.

Trenchless Sewer Repairs & Replacement

Trenchless Sewer Line Replacement

 trenchless

 Trenchless sewer line replacement is now the way of the future. The old traditional way of replacing a sewer drain pipe is to dig up the old pipe, by hand or with a machine, and lay a new one. This way is very labor intensive and can be very expensive when a line is in a difficult position, such as under a house, a road or under concrete.

The trenchless sewer line replacement technology saves time and money and is particularly efficient when the sewer drain pipe is under a driveway, a house, sidewalk, or under a big tree.

 

So how does trenchless sewer line replacement work?

Using this new trenchless sewer line replacement method we excavate a hole at the building where the cast iron pipe begins and we then excavate a hole at the end of the pipe at the sidewalk. We expose the sewer drain pipe in each hole and cut out small sections of pipe. Next, we feed a large strong steel cable between the two holes. Attached to this cable is a large heavy metal cone shaped head that breaks the old pipe in place to exactly the size of the new trenchless drain pipe. The new sewer drain pipe is actually a black plastic pipe about 4 or 6 inches in diameter. This sewer drain pipe is connected together by melting the ends of the pipe and joining them to create one continuous length of sewer drain pipe without any joints, eliminating tree roots and leaks.

 

trenchlessAs we pull the cable through the sewer drain pipe with up to 3 tons of pressure, the splitting head bursts the old sewer drain pipe and pushes it out of the way making room for the new sewer drain pipe.

The actual replacement of the sewer drain pipe usually only takes a few hours and the work can be done in a day or two.

There is no problem pulling through roots or even residential and commercial buildings. This trenchless sewer drain replacement technology works well and because the new sewer drain pipe has no joints, is flexible so it will never crack or break and no roots can get into it.

trenchlessThe Trenchless Sewer Line Replacement Cost Is Cheaper Than Conventional Methods Of Sewer Replacement

When considering a trenchless sewer line replacement cost to other repair methods it is easy to see that this method of repairing and replacing damaged pipes is both cost-effective and innovative. Traditional forms of pipe repairs and replacements require technicians to dig down to reach the pipes, leaving a deep, wide trench behind them. The surface area that is above all of the damaged areas will need to be removed. This form of excavation can be highly costly due to the additional expenses that are incurred. Overall, the trenchless sewer line replacement cost is cheaper and requires fewer repairs and less excavation. Additionally, this form of pipe repairs typically results in fewer homeowner and commercial complaints.

It is often the case that conventional methods for replacing sewer lines can take as many as two full days to complete. Replacing sewer lines without digging trenches, however, can be completed in about 8 hours. This is another way in which the trenchless sewer line replacement cost is reduced considerably. There are less labor charges due to the fact that the jobs can be rapidly and efficiently completed.

trenchlessFor people who own their own homes, the trenchless sewer line replacement cost is not only a feasible investment, but it is well worth the cost given that it results in less damage to professionally landscaped areas. With conventional sewer line replacements, homeowners are usually outraged by the condition of their yards once the process has been completed. These individuals must additionally pay for the costs of repairing the damages caused to landscaping, which makes conventional methods of sewer repair much more pricey. Many homeowners would opt to pay the trenchless sewer line replacement cost as opposed to the costs for traditional methods of making these repairs. Because the repairs can be finished in less than a single day, the trenchless repair option is far more cost effective to most homeowners.

With sewer line repairs that are trenchless, the crew begins by digging a pit at both ends of the pipe area that is to be repaired. A burst head is then placed into a section of the damaged pipe. As this is passed through the pipe, the pipe shatters. A winch is used to pull the burst head completely through the damaged pipe, leading the new behind. The shattered pipe is absorbed by the surrounding soil and then the pits are back filled by the trenchless repair company. In the end, there is minimal damage to the surface area of the repair site, and all resulting issues can be quickly and cheaply remedied.

For commercial consumers, there can be tremendous savings earned by taking advantage of the much lower trenchless sewer line replacement cost. With conventional methods of digging trenches, a significant amount of damage can be created on sidewalks and parking areas. Additionally, the repair site may even cause traffic interference and noise disturbances throughout the repair process. When trenches are dug in order to perform sewer line replacements and repairs, there is an increased risk of causing damage to cable, water, electrical and telephone lines, which will also result in increased costs for the consumer. The reduced amount of risk for damaging these lines make the trenchless sewer line replacement cost the premier choice of commercial consumers. When phone, water or other utility lines are severed, a business can suffer from a total loss of productivity.

Comparing The Costs Of Trenchless Sewer Replacement And Conventional Methods

The area in which you reside is one of the determining factors of a trenchless sewer line replacement cost. The foregoing prices are based upon the national price average. The price for these services will also be dependent upon the location of the pipe itself, the amount of pipe that was damaged and how difficult it will be for a company to access the repair area.

When the replacement area is small, conventional methods will average about fifty to sixty dollars per each linear foot. This price will vary according to the actual depth of the pipes. Consumers can count on price increases when accessing the repair area proves difficult for the repair company. Additionally, in areas where landscaping features or structures must be moved, the costs for conventional services will increase. There will also be the added costs of repairing damaged areas where the trench digging has affected the landscaping.

The trenchless sewer line replacement cost averages about sixty to a hundred dollars per linear foot. If the repair area is easy to access, the total price can be even lower. Additionally, any damages to structures or landscaping are not likely to be significant. Rather than one large pit, two small pits are dug instead, causing minimal damage. This is one major way in which the trenchless repair and replacement method helps consumers to save.

The final trench less sewer repair cost is dependent upon the actual length of the pipe that is damaged. Additionally, the cause of the damage may be factored into the final cost as well. For instance, when tree roots invade sewage pipes, consumers may have to pay extra in order to have the roots removed.

The area will need to be evaluated by a licensed plumber who can investigate the potential causes for the damage. Once the complexity of the issue has been determined by a plumbing professional, he or she can issue a quote for the assessed repairs and recommend the best methods and processes for repairing damaged areas. While the typical trench less sewer line replacement cost tends be the cheapest method, it is not always the ideal solution for every repair. This too is dependent upon the complexity of the issue and the repair location.

The majority of company owners and homeowners will prefer to pay the trench less sewer line replacement cost over the hassle of choosing other methods. This is a far less invasive process and one that typically requires a shorter amount of time to complete a pipe repair or replacement. Consumers should first get a quote for the trenchless sewer line replacement cost for their repairs. In fact, it is generally recommended that consumers obtain a minimum of two quotes before selecting a plumber to work with.

The plumbing professional should definitely visit the repair site to evaluate the problem and formulate a solution. He or she should also offer detailed information concerning the potential of landscape damages, the estimated duration of the repair and whether or not clean-up services are included in the contract.

The benefits of a trench less method of repairing sewer lines far exceed the actual costs. In most instances, however, the trench less sewer line replacement cost will be considerably lower than the price of conventional digging methods.

You should always check to make certain that any plumbing professional or company that you are considering is both licensed and bonded. You can ask for quotes for both conventional and trench less methods in order to make a price comparison of your own. For most consumers and most repairs, the trench less sewer line replacement cost will prove more affordable than other solutions.
