I need to find a way to cover my sump basin. I previously had a cover on the basin that fit properly. I recently had a backup pump installed, now the lid will not fit. The backup pump will not allow the original lid to attach to the basin. Is there 1. a "raised" or domed lid that may work 2. an extension that can attach to the basin, to which the lid can attach? What other options would you suggest?

Talk about timing, I just returned from a job today where the two sewer ejectors covers had deteriorated completely and I contacted my plumbing supplier and said "HELPPPPPPP"

The owner said no problem give me the diameter of the sump and I measured it and said it is 30" diameter, He called a few places and got back to me today saying they can order them in either metal or plastic but he strongly suggested the plastic as I could easily cut out the desired opening 2" water and 11/2" vent and a smaller hole for the electrical lines.

As I normally back away from plastic in this case it is the better choice as it will not rust or corrode as the metal lid had.

Try either contacting the manufacturer of the sump or contact a local plumbing supply and give them the measurements and hopefully you will find your exact needs
