When water enters the unit, the trough will capture it. Then it will direct the water to the StormSack filter bag. In comparison to similar devices from other manufacturers, the Stormtrough offers easier installation with fewer parts.

Key benefits of the California-approved stormwater product:
  • 8-year warranty on all components including filter bag
  • Maintainance is easy
  • Installation is simple
  • Fabricated with high-quality stainless steel

Mount this cartridge-based system within the inlet of a drainage structure. The California-compliant stormwater product houses media in high-flow cartridges. Then, the media removes specific pollutants such as 80% TSS, trash, sedimentation, bacteria, vegetation, and nutrients. In comparison to similar devices from other manufacturers, the StormBasin offers great treatment and bypass. As a result, it requires less maintenance.

Similar to other FABCO stormwater products approved by California, StormBasin delivers numerous benefits. For example:
  • 8-year warranty on all components including filter bag
  • Both higher treatment and bypass rates reduce required maintenance when compared to competitive products
