Garage Floor Drain Grate

Hi all,

I had so much luck with my first experience here I thought I'd try another question.

In the middle of my garage I have a drain which comes in very handy for when I want to wash my car in the winter...like right now in Minnesota. The grate that covers this drain has somehow broken and a huge chunk is lodged in the drain. I can try to remove it but the main purpose of this inquiry is I'm searching for a place to purchase a new grate. Does anyone have any ideas where I can go to purchase a rectangular metal grate? It's approximately 8" x 10"

Thanks much and Happy New Year.

Ingbor

Try Ace Hardware or any good plumbing store.

new grate

Take what's left of the old one, to a local welding/fab shop. They could duplicate it, for probably not a whole lot of $$$.

I'm with Jim on this one i do a few welding repairs and i have this stuff laying in the yard. Most all fab shops will have scrap as big as you need and likely for the change in your pocket
