Downspouts can become even more effective when coupled with a downspout drainage basin. By adding a catch basin to an existing downspout, you can isolate and divert storm water away from your home and keep your basement dry. Catch basins come in a variety of sizes (up to 24″ square), with grates available in plastic, brass or cast iron options.
Trench or channel drains in the shower open up the bathroom space. It also makes bathing easier for the aging and for baths that need to be ADA compliant. A shower with a trench drain across the entrance keeps water confined to the shower enclosure while making the walkway free of obstructions.
