How to Replace a Missing Lawn Irrigation Cover

Fig.1 Damages
By Gary Boutin

Supplies and Tools:   
Storm grate 9-inch square

This happened in my complex were we live, and its a simple repair. The maintenance crew had it repaired before the repair ticket was even received. 

This post shows the four steps to replacing a simple square irrigation cover.

Step 1: Fig.1 shows the top of the irrigation grate.  The damage irrigation cover and base have been destroyed. This is a Storm 9-inch square grate and was used because it sits on top of top of a pipe riser throughout our Chino neighborhood. A simple repair when parts are available and this damage came from the riding lawn mower.
Step 2: Fig.2 show to inside top and Fig.3 shows the back side of a Grate Cover Base that clips directly onto the ABS Piping.

Step 3: The Home Depot has a catch basin with a grate all inclusive. Some basin do not have any manufacturers brand or number so it might be easier to replace the entire basin with top grate. Not all irrigation box grate fit all basin bases.
Step 4: Fig.4 shows the job is finished. The parts located at a local irrigation company.
