  • Dandy Sack® Inlet Filter

    $42.00

    One of the greatest environmental concerns we face these days is soil erosion. This is a widespread problem due to the rise of urbanization and a multitude of construction projects that are ongoing.  When buildings are constructed, the land is ripped up and dug out, exposing the soil to possible erosion.
    Sediments dug up during construction can find their way to the city’s water system through storm sewers, storm grates and storm inlets.   This includes large projects and small projects (like the new home being built on your block), alike.
    Because of the potential danger to our environment, the government has required contractors to use a professional-grade inlet filter and to erect their own sediment control solutions and measures when starting any new project.


    Quality is what the Dandy Sack is all about. The incredibly strong open-top bag is specially designed to hang underneath a storm grate to expertly filter the thickest sediment-laden storm water. The suspended solids are allowed to settle out of the slowed flow and are conveniently captured by the Dandy Sack prior to entering the inlet, making the sturdy Dandy Sack a storm water must.

    Installation:

    • Remove the grate from catch basin.
    • If using optional oil absorbents, place absorbent pillow in pouch on bottom of the unit.
    • Stand the grate on end. Move the top lifting straps out of the way and place the grate into the Dandy Sack so that the grate is below the top straps and above the lower straps.
    • Holding the lifting straps, insert the grate into the inlet.

    Maintenance:

    •  Remove all accumulated sediment and debris from vicinity of the unit after each storm event.
    • After storm event and at regular intervals, look into Dandy Sack. If containment area is more than 1/3 full of sediment, the unit must be emptied.
    • To empty unit, simply lift the unit using lifting straps and remove the grate. If using optional oil absorbents, replace absorbent pillow when near saturation.


    Choose from 24"x 24", 36" x 24", 48" x 24" or 48" x 36"
