StormSack Geotextile Catch Basin Insert Filter System

Geotextile Catch Basin Insert Stormwater Filter for Trash & Debris Capture

The Fabco Industries StormSack is a geotextile catch basin insert filtration device designed to capture sediment, trash and debris found in stormwater runoff.  The StormSack is available in the BMP series and PLUS series, with the PLUS series having both slotted and dovetail variants.

This geotextile-based filter provides high treatment flow rates while capturing fine sediments and other solids contained in stormwater runoff with a replaceable filter bag offering a treated flow rate of 145 GPM/ft². Designed for flat, combination, and open curb style drain inlets, the StormSack is highly customizable in terms of shapes and sizes, thanks to the adjustable aluminum frame.  The PLUS series also adds a simple oil absorbent boom, allowing you to expand the functionality of this high flow filter to include oil compounds, making it well suited to parking lots, vehicle maintenance yards, and trash transfer sites.

The StormSack acts as an excellent prefilter, providing an initial filtering step right at the storm drain inlet and before the water is sent to other stormwater BMP designs, such as detention ponds, infiltration areas, or other proprietary filter devices.

StormSack Geotextile Catch Basin Insert FAQs

What about the dovetail frame model?

Limited sizes are available due to change in direction as well as supply chain issues. These units feature an aluminum frame, and the square/rectangle models feature a 5″ adjustment range. While heavily featured in the photo gallery below, they’re currently offered by request only, if unavailable we will recommend a StormSack PLUS instead.

StormSok versus StormSack?

In the past, our round StormSacks were referred to as StormSoks. Nowadays they’re all called StormSacks for the sake of consistency. There may be some documentation floating around using the old naming scheme. Contact sales@fabco-industries.com for further clarification/requests for information.
