Recessed Cleanout drain (basement floor)


Hi, I have a recessed sewer cleanout (about 3" below finished floor height) and I was wondering what the best solution/product would be to cover this. It is in a basement with 1/4" sub floor. I will be installing laminate flooring this week and I don't want to cover over the cleanout. Thoughts?

Thanks,
Dave H

I'm a little confused---what is the 1/4" underlayment? If the floor is concrete no subfloor should be there.

As to the cleanout---there are nice chrome covers available to hide a 4" access hole----

Other than that you would need a wood hatch cover---not to pretty----Mike---

Cement slab floor covered with delta floor material and then a layer of 1/4" ply. Essentially, homemade dry core flooring. Any recomendation as to where I can purchase those covers?

Any plumbing supply shop will have them---even the Depot has one or two different sizes.---Mike---
