Outside drainage: New manhole covers are smaller than the one I have

Postby the2ems » Sat Sep 29, 2012 6:18 pm

Hi, not sure if I am in the right part of the forum, but I couldn't find a section on outside drainage. I want to buy a new manhole cover, but the dimensions shown on the ones at Wickes are smaller than the one I have. The house where I need the cover is probably from around the 50's so the cover is a solid cast iron jobby. Have the sizes change since going metric, and can you still get the older ones?
