Are you wondering how you can stop sediment, cigarette butts, candy wrappers and other debris from going down the drain?
It’s easy. All you need is a quality storm water filters or three, especially if they have storm drain filter inserts. You’ll discover that the water will flow through but all the junk will stay in the filter and can be removed safely.
Isn’t that good news for the environment! Of course you know that the candy wrappers and cigarette butts are the least of the environmental threats that would be flowing into the ground water.
There are much worse things that can go down the drain, including oil and chemical residues, particularly from parking lots and other places where cars and machinery are parked. Those parked cars can leak all sorts of noxious gunk, from oil to coolants.
And by using simple storm water filters, you can stop that and protect the groundwater.
So what kind of filter should you get? That depends on the kind of debris and chemicals that are the most likely to be in the storm water run-off.
Consider the Ultra-DrainGuard Trash and Debris Model especially for debris removal. And then there’s the Ultra-DrainGuard Oil and Sediment Model, which effectively removes grease as well as oil along with sediment as the water passes through.
If you want to go all out, you can even get models with X-Tex absorbent filter strips for extra filtering power.
And when those storm water filters are full, just replace them and they’ll resume their work.
