Garage Drain - help needed


I cannot find a replacement drain for my garage. The opening is 8 3/4" and would require a steel or cast iron drain. The old drain was rusted and caved in. I found an 8" drain at Home Depot - but it measures 10 1/4" in diameter. I believe I need a 7" drain with legs to sit in the piping. Any ideas. I checked the website of the company Plumbest and all the had was 6(8"dia) and 8(10 1/4") diameter drains. Any websites or suggestions on where to find one before I call a plumber?

Maybe you can order it over the net, or if there is a local plubing supply house there, try them.

If your in a pinch and can't find one go to a welding shop and have them make one up for you ,just give them size and have them drill out as many hole as needed .
