Manhole cover Regulations?

Postby ding123 » Thu Feb 09, 2012 10:26 am

I fell down a manhole a few months ago. The hole was surrounded by gravel and a cheap plastic manhole cover placed over the hole. It wasnt bedded in, cemented or anything. When i stood on the corner of the cover it moved and i fell in it (by accident). lol.

Any regulations on how they should be installed?

Many thanks

They need to be securely bedded in and not allow surface water penetration.

Hope you were ok.
