Ultratech Drain Guard (Heavy Metal Model) Applications
Heavy metals pose a significant threat to public health and should be taken seriously—especially when talking about polluted stormwater runoff that will enter storm drains and infect the water ways. The Heavy Metal Drain Guard will help you comply with Stormwater Management Regulation 40 CFR 122.26, National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES), and Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL). Remember that the flow rate for the Heavy Metal model Drain Guard is 275 gpm. This is to allow the filter media to have enough time to remove the heavy metals present in the stormwater pollution. Take time to consider what heavy metals you may need to be filtering from your stormwater runoff. Our product specialists will be happy to assist you in determining what product is best for you.
Ultratech Drain Guard FAQs
When it comes to filtering a wide variety of metals, another stormwater filtration product you could try is the Ultra HydroKleen. It is a stormwater catch basin that can filter 5 different types of pollutants. See our HydroKleen page for more information. The Ultra Filter Sock is another stormwater BMP that protects drains from unwanted pollutants.
Because the Heavy Metal Model will be filtering toxic chemicals, it is imperative that you deal with it in accordance of local regulations. The toxic materials that could be present should not be disposed of in a landfill.
The Heavy Metal Model Drain Guard skirt is impermeable so that water that flows into the drain and across the skirt is funneled through the filter media. The idea of this drain guard is making sure that all polluted stormwater is accounted for. This impermeable skirt sets the Heavy Metal Model apart from the other Ultra Drain guards we offer.
