Sewer Cleanout Replacement
 
The sewer cleanout adjacent to my parking bay was run over and the cap is now broken. For whatever reason the contractors installed a 6" diameter cleanout for a residential townhouse. I want to replace the cleanout cap with one that is traffic rated. I assume I can use a rotor tool to cut off the top, broken area (cutting it from the inside) and then just set the new cap onto the vertical PVC pipe extending to the ground level...? Secondly, does anyone know where I can find a 6" diameter, traffic rated cleanout cap? Thanks!

You probably should have posted this in the plumbing forum - with a picture.
However, you can find a 6 inch clean-out cap at a plumbing supply house.

go in to your local plumbing supply not H/D tell them what you have and what you want to do, clean out should be recessed with a second deary cover to absorb the weight, this cover may just pop off or with screws usually steel or cement, there are various types. its like a water meter box but for this application.
