The Heavy Duty Silt Trap should be installed on a level base. If necessary bed on 100mm of dry mixed concrete. The units should be lifted into position separately. Ensure that the drain pipe is flush or slightly protruding through the backwall. Use the four bolts through the brackets at each side to keep the units together for backfilling, do not over-tighten. Make good around the pipe with cement mortar, and clean out loose material from the floor before fitting the grating and its retaining brackets. Carefully complete the backfilling, and consolidate to the original profile.
