A catchpit chamber is an empty chamber installed in an underground drainage system in order to catch sediment and other debris that is carried along the system. These chambers play a crucial role in preventing the build up of material that if left untouched could lead to blockages.
What is a Catchpit?
A catchpit is installed in order to catch sediment and any other debris that is passing within an underground drainage system. The pit will then be used to give above ground access for inspection and maintenance of systems.
How do Catchpits work?
The chamber will be installed within the pipe network (usually upstream) so it can catch any debris before it enters the system. As Water flows into the chamber through the inlet pipe silt and debris in the water will fall to the bottom of the chamber (the sump) where it will collect.
Water will then flow out of the catchpit through an outlet pipe.
Cleaning the Catchpit
As the sump will fill with silt and debris regularly it’s important the catchpits are cleaned regularly. This will avoid any blockages or the chance of any unwanted material from entering the outlet pipe.
