Keep oil and sediment from entering catch basins with environmentally friendly inserts
Recycled is the new black. Okay, maybe not. But it is certainly a buzzword in stormwater and other environmental circles. The great thing about this recycled product is that it's also extremelyeffective.
The X-Tex material that the Recycled Model is made from is excellent at removing oil, gas and other hydrocarbons from water flow. It's also hydrophilic (attracted to water), so it allows water to pass through very quickly. An important characteristic in a catch basin insert.

What's different about this Drain Guard model compared to the others?
From a dimensional standpoint, the Recycled Model Drain Guard is the same as the Oil & Sediment Model Drain Guard, but instead of the geotextile material used for other models, we make the Recycled Model completely from Ultra-X-Tex.
Why do you use X-Tex for this product?
X-Tex removes oil and other hydrocarbons much faster than traditional absorbents. A polypropylene sorbent material will not allow water to freely pass through it. Oil will absorb at the surface of a polypropylene absorbent, and the polypropylene will eventually blind over and the center will not absorb any oil.
Do I have to take the grate out of the storm drain to install this Ultra-Drain Guard?
Yes. While we do have some stormwater products that do not require the grate to be lifted, the Ultra-Drain Guard, Recycled Model does require that you first lift the grate.
What do I do with the Drain Guard when I'm done with it?
If the unit has only been used to remove dirt, sand and sediment from incoming stormwater flow, it can be disposed of like any other trash/waste. If oil/grease or any other hydrocarbons have been absorbed by the X-Tex material, it must be disposed of in accordance with local regulations and requirements.
What size drains will this Drain Guard fit?
The Ultra-Drain Guard, Recycled Model is designed to be installed in drains up to 30" x 40".
