Rated 5 out of 5Â by Marine001 Best drain sump ever put in.
Had a severe water problem with 6" or more of water flooding to the back and side of my house. Put in a french drain with drain pipe purchased from Home Depot, but it wasn't enough to catch the initial flood of water. Looked at a 12" and 14" sump, but the best bargain for the money was this 16" drain sump with grate and seals. The seals worked easily and my drain pipe locked right into the sump with no issues. The removable grate was a bonus because it allows me to clean out any sand and debris the washes into the bottom. Great product!!!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by sumpdrainoverflow Adapted this product to work with an underground drain
My sump pump drain exits into a bed of stone about 4' underground. I needed something to prevent water exiting the pipe from washing dirt into the stone bed and clogging it (as had happened in the past).
I filled the bottom of this item with pea gravel, and then inserted the drain pipe in through the orange seal. Then I added more pea gravel, and then some larger stone, and then installed the cover. Now here's the hard part -- I flipped this product (and the 3 bags of stone inside it) so that the grate was on the bottom. That allowed the water to drain out while preventing dirt from coming in.
This is a well-designed and well-constructed product. It worked very well for my application, and I'm sure it would work even better for its intended application.

This is a very sturdy unit and easy to install. If I needed a sump pump it would be easy to install that.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Nikonica _Extremely_ high quality product at a great price
I have installed one of these on my driveway as part of a comprehensive drainage system. This larger model has a huge sump area and should only infrequently need to be cleaned. It is an excellent value for a catch basin of this size. The pipe seals accomodate any size pipe from 2" to 4", and allow the full diameter of a 4" pipe to enter/exit the sump, without restricting the diameter. This is a well-made product that's easy to install and is made in the USA as well. I am very pleased.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by mrfixit Good product, but needs mods to work well
Product has quality construction, but the top fits way too tight to be able to remove it for cleaning later. I had to shave a bit off each side on my table saw and sand the corners down. Still a tight fit but now I can get it out. I also put a bit of loose gravel underneath and drilled a small (1/8") weep hole so the water will eventually drain out, rather than have 6 - 8" of standing water in the bottom. For the 4" drain tile to fit, I had to cut a few small slits around the inside edge of the orange hole plug/seal. There were also no instructions with the product.
