How heavy is the basket??
The basket itself is about 12 lbs, of course this is without debris inside, we recommend to make sure to empty this out regularly as its a very large basket for our 22x22 basins and can get heavy and cause clogging issues if you let it get too full.
What is the basket made of?
Our 22x22 sediment basket is made of heavy duty galvanized stamped steel. To ensure long life and all heavy duty installations.
Do things get stuck in the basket holes?
Honestly no, we made the holes in the basket large enough to allow things like fine particles and small debris to exit (things that wont cause clogging issues) but small enough to catch all your leaves, grass, twigs and larger debris.
