Storm Drain Spill Protection
Three Styles of Spill Blockers
In an ideal world, spills wouldn't happen in the first place, but since they do, you need to be prepared for them. Drain Seals are fast to deploy and lay overtop the exposed drain grate, forming a protective seal. Once the Drain Seal is in place, spills and leaks stay out. We carry three types of drain seals: the Standard Ultra-Drain Seal, the Ultra-Drain Seal (Clear Model), and the Ultra-Drain Seal (Plus Model). See below for more information about each model of Drain Seal and how to determine which is right for you.
While Drain Seals provide a protective layer above an exposed storm drain grate, Drain Spill Berms surround the perimeter of a storm drain, diverting spills and leaks. These rubber spill berms or storm drain blockers are also quick and easy to deploy. Simply position them around a storm drain before leaks can enter. We carry two types of these spill blocker barriers: The Ultra-Spill Berm and the Ultra-Spill Berm (Plus Model).
Both the Drain Seal and the Drain Spill Berm work around and on top of the storm drain grate, but Drain Plugs go deeper. Drain Plugs act as a stopper that prevents spills from entering, and are designed to fit almost any drain. Think of it as a polyurethane cork, wedged into a storm drain, creating a magnificent seal.

How to Pick the Perfect Storm Drain Spill Protection Product
Each of these storm drain protection products takes a different approach in preventing spills from entering the storm drains. Drain seals tend to be preferred for over-grate drains, while rubber spill berms can be shaped to secure openings of different sizes and shapes, and drain plugs provide the utmost in protection. You'll find more detailed information about these options below. Should you have questions, please contact us. We're here to help. 863-261-8388.
Ultra Drain Seal Selection
Drain Seals: Made of a mesh interior surrounded by layers of polyurethane, Ultra Drain Seals are designed to effectively seal drains in the event of a spill. The flexibility of the material allows it to seal around the storm drain while being resistant to oil, water, and aggressive chemicals. The standard storm drain seal is intended for short-term use. Meaning, if used for more than two hours under UV exposure, it will begin to degrade. Luckily, if you need a product for extended use outside, you can use the Ultra-Drain Seal Plus Model. For a storm drain blocker that you can see through, the Ultra-Drain Seal Clear Model is a great choice. With this model, there's no more guesswork in determining the effectiveness of your spill protection device. You can see clearly if there are irregularities or if everything is working smoothly.
- Ultra Drain Seal: Temporary, Stops Spills Fast (see installation video)
- Ultra Drain Seal (Clear Model): See Through for Storm Drain BMP Effectiveness and Transparency
- Ultra Drain Seal (Plus Model): Longer Term Use Outdoors
- Ultra Drain Seal Mount: Mounts to Walls or Equipment, for Fast Access in an Emergency
Ultra Spill Berm Selection
Drain Spill Berms: Easily divert leaks and spills away from drain with a spill berm. Made of unique urethane material that bleeds into cracks and crevices, creating a tight seal, you can be sure that this drain spill protection product will be exactly right for your jobsite. The spill berm is made from flexible, non-absorbing material and can be reused after it's been cleaned. The sections of the Ultra Spill Berm are 10 feet long but can be cut to meet whatever length you require. This product is for temporary, smaller spills and leaks, but if you require a spill berm built to handle and divert larger spills, then the Ultra Spill Berm Plus Model would be the best choice.
- Ultra Spill Berm: Temporary, Smaller Leaks and Spills (see installation video)
- Ultra Spill Berm Plus Model: Temporary, Larger Leaks and Spills
Ultra Drain Plugs
Drain Plugs: Able to wedge into standard drains to prevent contaminants from entering, the storm Drain Plug is made of pliable material, shaped in a tapered design that allows you to plug up virtually any drain at any time. The drain plug is made from urethane and shouldn't be exposed to UV for long periods of time. You should use the storm Drain Plug for as long as it takes to clean up the spill or leak. Installing the drain plug use eyebolts (8"), which are removeable (see installation video).

Where to Use Storm Drain Spill Protection, and Does it Even Matter?
Storm drain spill protection is important. Many storm drains empty directly into open waterways without any treatment. That means contaminants, chemicals, and other hazardous materials have full access to our water supply if we sit idly by and do nothing. Whether at a jobsite, garage, car wash, warehouse, factory or plant, spills occur. If you don't have the right tools in place to deal with them, you could be subject to compliance fines and citations. Protect yourself and your community from these spills and leaks with the right tools.
Most of these drain spill protection products are temporary spill containment tools, with the exception of the Drain Seal Plus Model. But if properly cared for, out spill containment products are long-lasting, and can be easily cleaned and reused.
