I have just uncovered a rodding point in my back room which I was hoping to lay a solid oak floor onto. I have emailed the water board to find out if is still in use, awaiting a reply.
My question is this: is it acceptable to permanently board over the rodding point on the basis that you could rod from the manhole cover, if the need arose, or does the rodding point allow something that the manhole cover doesn't?
Worse case scenario is to leave an access hatch but I'd rather not do this if possible.
Thanks, all help appreaciated.
