Re: basement drain

It sounds to me you want to do some "ghetto fabolous" work on the drain. The cover is for the top at the floor level. And the trap seal is at the bottom and the only way to fix it is to dig it up. However, for just the drain cover, if you want make one and caulk/glue it to the toplip. Good luck. Process of elimination.
