If you own a commercial garage or kitchen, you are most likely thankful for your triple basin system, also known as a garage basin. And if you have an issue with an existing triple basin system you know that you need to get it resolved by professionals right away.
Triple basin systems are typically used in commercial garages to separate hazardous materials from being immediately dumped into the sewer system. Some waste, like oil, gasoline and other chemicals, have toxic fumes that can potentially cause a hazardous explosion underground if not allowed to properly ventilate. This is obviously not a desirable outcome in any way, shape or form!
The triple basin system is typically made out of high grade plastic or steel and is best installed by plumbing professionals. A properly installed triple basin system will catch any type of hazardous waste before it gets to the sewer main line, as most of these waste products are lighter than water. The special design of a triple basin system will stop the toxic waste products from reaching the sewer by catching them in the triple basin. Once caught, then the toxic fumes can be safely vented until the remaining material is no longer toxic. At that point, the contents of the triple basin can be safely emptied into the sewer system.
A triple basin system can be available in several diameters between the sizes of 18” to 72” wide. Some triple basin systems allow for customization of each of the three basins, each one being a different size; and some triple basin systems have three receptacles within one unit.
