About This Product

The quickest, easiest catch basin to install. The Vortex low profile design has the unique ability to capture and contain high volume of runoff water. The Vortex action moves water faster than any basin to effectively prevent pooling water and mosquito breeding grounds. A built-in debris collector and anti-tamper feature is incorporated into the base unit as an added feature. Built-in bottom outlet is made of ABS plastic and is compatible with 4 in. PVC pipe. To create a watertight connection, apply RELN Sealant (part number 000309) to effectively glue the discharge pipe to the bottom outlet. No need for a riser, simply position the height of your Vortex basin and cut pipe to desired height.


  • Flat aluminum grate design is perfect for pedestrian areas
  • Vortex action prevents standing water - no breeding area for mosquitoes
  • 4 in. bottom outlet allows easy connection
  • Glues to 4 in. sewer pipe - apply RELN drainage sealant part 000309
  • Easily connect 4 in. drain pipe by using the RELN 4 in. corrugated pipe adapter (part 000225)
  • Drain heavy water flows from lawns, landscaped areas, under downspouts, patios, and walkways

    Shockingly bad product
    As a catchment under a lightly used downspout, it’s been a massive disappointment, especially for the cost. The metal face is quite nice. The rest is an embarrassment. First, the poor design of its outflow means any biological material gets caught and clogs. I live in a spot with infrequent, intense rain, and even that couldn’t keep the flow clear. The bolts to hold on the face rust in place and the built-in nut structure just turns with them. They had to be drilled out.
