Over the Drain Sediment Filter Installation
One of the benefits of the over the drain sediment filter is its easy installation process. The Ultra Grate Guard Plus comes with included hardware for installation and does not require you to remove the stormwater drain grates to install it. The step-by-step instructions are as follows.
First, when installing the over the drain debris filter, insert the foam holding blocks into each corner of the grate and around its perimeter. There should be six inserted foam holding blocks in total. Next, unroll the Ultra Grate Guard Plus and place it over the stormwater drain grates. Make sure the storm drain guard emergency overflow port is aligned with the grate openings. Once the over the drain sediment filter is in position, cut away the excess material so that the storm drain guard is slightly larger than the grate itself. After the excess storm drain guard polymer material is cut away, place the holding pads over the places where the already inserted holding blocks were inserted into the grate. Use U-pins to attach the holding pads to the holding blocks and polymer storm drain guard.
