"Drain gulley was missing when we moved in, but hadn't realised until I had to go elbow deep in the drain to remove all the gravel that had, over the years, fallen into the drain from the drive.
With various sizes to the five pipes leading into the gulley, terminating at different depths, a gulley grid wasn't going to cut it effectively, plus does little when covered leaves, so this was a much better idea.
There are numerous guides on the inside for cutting out for other pipes of all sizes and shapes, but I ended up whipping out the dremel to custom fit around the hotch potch of plumbing I already have (cheaper than replacing the lot) and this will now stop any further stone/chipping/gravel incursion - and, hopefully, scrabbling on my hands and knees to manually dig out things that would otherwise have fallen in"
"Really pleased with this product thought it would be ideal for what i required. Good service in the store when purchasing but when i got the cover home it did not fit mu drain ! my fault i never measured. I will need to return this."
"This is a simple drain cover which has holes to allow you to screw to a wall to keep it in place. They took about ten minutes each to fit on single pipe gulleys and now I have no more leaves blocking the drains. Result! I am now going to buy some more as they look simple to fit around more complex pipework."
"Bought this to cover the drain at home. Leaves were always getting in and blocking the drain. So I decided to go for this one, hasn't broken the bank either, looks good too, easy to cut if you've got more than 1 pipe ( we got two one for washing machine) just use a holesaw for perfect hole. It's strong also my 2 year old always crashes his trike into its and still screwed to wall and in one piece"
"Made from thick plastic it looks a solid quality product and value for money. I needed it to slip under a render bell so it was too high at the back of the cover for my use but I could cut it easily with a hacksaw blade then plane the edge smooth. I also extended and reduced the width of the downpipe entry slot (as I fitted it around a 38mm waste pipe) using a small chisel but you could use a coping saw."
