New manhole cover carried out by BBS Building Services
This manhole cover was broken and needed repair
The old one has been removed and the opening prepared for new.
The frame fits perfectly. They come in different sizes so its important to measure before ordering.
Time to mix some sand and cement. The white solution is SBR and it will enhance the performance. This was supplied by Selco Builders warehouse
Use a straight edge to ensure its bedded level with the edges. Care needs to be taken not to drop debris and cement into the manhole, especially on deeper manholes where removing it is very difficult.
Use a float to level in.
Finally we fill in the cement level with the frame and sides. It will be less likely to crack and scuff with the SBR added.
