Forum Title: Surfacing cleanout above finished floor?
Hi, I converted half my garage into living space and have this new patio outside the bedroom. The plumber placed the cleanout at slab level. It currently has a plastic plug. I have a mason installing brick over the slab this week and we are trying to solve for the cleanout. The cleanout was placed right outside the patio door so I am trying to find a visually pleasing solution. My drains are 5" square brass or bronze, so I would like to keep the cleanout cover at 5" or less, and ideally, square as well, specially making it easier for brick install. The cleanout has a 3" tread. I can't find an extension with a cover. I am guessing another solution is to just leave the cleanout alone, with the plastic plug, and just put a cover flush with the brick to provide access. Or another way, could we just put a lose brick on top of the cleanout to allow access? is that done sometimes as a solution? I am not a plumber, so excuse my ignorance on the matter. I went to a plumbing supply shop and they couldn't figure out how to do it. I appreciate help here. Thanks

Unfortunately the plumber put the cleanout right in front of the patio door, so I am looking for a more discreet solution. Also, the drains are brass/bronze finish, so I am looking for something that matches, and that won't rust either. Thanks

try, a 3'' pvc male adapter threaded into the co. with a 4'' clean out . over the adapter you may have to cut the 3'' adapter in half for height
