Who cleans the LittaTrap™ and won't that be expensive?

We have designed the LittaTrap™ to be lightweight so it can be lifted out by hand, taking away any expensive maintenance costs. If Health & Safety guidelines are followed, anyone can maintain a LittaTrap™. Please see our maintenance video.

How easy is it to install a LittaTrap™?

The LittaTrap™ is easy to install if you have the right equipment. We have an installation instructional guide that goes through the step-by-step process. Please see this here. In some areas we have installation contractors we work with that we can provide details for. Contact us on info@enviropod.com for more details.

Why is the LittaTrap™ so effective?

The LittaTrap™ has been developed by specialist stormwater engineering companyStormwater360 New Zealand who has over 25 years’ experience in developing stormwater management solutions. The LittaTrap™ is a highly engineered solution that accommodates high contaminant & hydraulic loading and has been independently tested in both New Zealand & Canada.

Why would I install a LittaTrap™?

By installing a LittaTrap™ inside a catch basin, all plastic and pollutants caught up in stormwater runoff are retained inside the patented basket, stopping this pollution from reaching the waterways.  

Installation of a LittaTrap™ can also reduce the risk of stormwater infrastructure blocking further downstream by acting as pre-treatment for other treatment devices.

How often will I have to maintain the LittaTrap™?

The LittaTrap™ typically requires maintenance two to four times a year across Canada. The most commonly used unit in Canada is designed with 45 liters of storage capacity, keeping maintenance cycles low.

Please note, this number can vary, and Enviropod recommends regular checks of LittaTrap™ units for the first-year post installation to establish a site-specific maintenance plan.

How do I know if a LittaTrap™ will fit a catch basin?

We have developed a measuring method where we ask you to take photos of the catch basin/s so we can determine the correct size LittaTrap™. We require your assistance by following the step by step instructions on this video.

Please ensure that you have location services turned on your smartphone device. Also, please take note of the Health & Safety recommendations on the video.

Will the LittaTrap™ clog, blind or fill with leaves?

As leaves enter the LittaTrap™ unit, subsequent water pressure compresses incoming leaves and ensures they will lot clog, blind or quickly fill the LittaTrap™ unit. Enviropod does advise maintenance both before and after the fall period to minimize the effect of leaves on overall storage capacity.

Do I need to remove the LittaTrap™ unit during winter months?

The LittaTrap™ is designed from engineered structural plastics that are both UV stable and freeze resistant. Said plastics will not corrode or leech pollutants and have been extensively tested to withstand winters across multiple North American locations. Frozen water may build up in the LittaTrap but will not back up and can escape via the overflow bypass slot once it thaws.

What are the available sizes of the LittaTrap™?

The LittaTrap™ is available in the following standard catch basin sizes; 675x450 and 450x450. The LittaTrap™ can also be adapted to fit round manholes. We can also manufacture custom sizes for non-standard catch basin sizes. Please contact a sales representative to discuss on info@enviropod.com

Is the LittaTrap™ hand-maintainable at full capacity?

A standardly sized LittaTrap unit has been designed to ensure viable hand-maintenance at full capacity. Enviropod advises the unit is lifted by two workers who are trained in standard lifting technique with equipment as necessary to avoid putting unnecessary weight on lifters backs.

Is the LittaTrap™ available globally?

Yes, the LittaTrap™ can be shipped anywhere in the world. The more people that install a LittaTrap™, the less plastic there will be in the ocean. Contact us at info@enviropod.com if you would like more information on this.
