About This Product

A drain with style! Take the 12 in. decorative drain grate with botanical design. The pattern of leaves isn't just for show-they're 3/8 in. grate openings that block harmful leaves and debris from entering and clogging your drainage system to protect the health of your landscape, inside and out. Drains moderate flows from lawns, landscaped areas, patios, walkways, and under downspouts. The drain grate (or drain cover) works with the 12 in. square catch basin drain, riser, and low-profile adapter. The plastic drain grate overlaps the top edge of the basin for a stylish effect, with 24.4 sq. in. of open surface area and 75 GPM flow rate. Made of polyethylene treated with UV inhibitors to prevent fading and cracking. The drain grate is rated for NDS Class B loads (up to 175 psi) when properly installed, and ADA compliant. As part of a complete drainage system, the drain grate works with a catch basin or low-profile adapter to collect water and direct it to drain pipes. The pipes carry the water to a discharge point downstream such as a pop-up emitter, or to percolate into the ground with a dry well or infiltration trench. NDS offers free tools such as the Channel Drain Selector, Home Drainage Center, and NDS Stormwater Drainage mobile app to help make your project a success. Founded in 1972, NDS is the preferred choice of professionals and the leader in stormwater management solutions with proven products, tools, and support to help you get the job done right.

    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  This weight limit for the grate is pedestrian, wheelchair or bicyle traffic. If used in our catch basin with a 4" collar of concrete, the grate can withstand light car and truck loads.

      Nice
      I originally got this with the intention of using it as another reviewer did, to help with elevation and drainage of a potted plant. I have two smail drains along the side of the house, one of which is always clogging with debris. I then thought if I placed this over it it would deter the junk. Water can drain around it and it looks much nicer now.

      Great as a base for potted plants
      I know this product is intended to be used as a covering for drain holes / pipes, but when I saw it I knew it would be perfect in my garden. I love the fern / leaf design - not too feminine yet it appeals to my girly side. I have potted plants on one side of my sidewalk because the ground retains water and is very spongy. Having my plants in pots keeps the roots from getting soggy, but the pots keep sinking into the ground unevenly. As a result, my pots are leaning rather than sitting upright. This square grate is the perfect solution! To use, I simply smoothed the ground slightly so the grate would sit level and then I placed my potted plant on top. The grate drains, so water can easily disperse to the ground below. The plastic is very thick - I stepped on the grate while it rested on my sidewalk and it felt very sturdy. I noticed on Home Depot's website that the product can be purchased in other neutral colors such as black, gray and tan. Nice to have options other than green! There's a 1" rim below the decorative face that can be pushed down to ground level, giving the grate stability so it won't shimmy around when stepped on. If these weren't so pricey, I would use them to create a walkway out my back door leading to my gas grill as well as another path leading from my back stoop to our trashcan. However, I would need at least 16 pieces to do both projects which would cost me over $500. I feel that in the long run it would be worth the money, because I expect these will be more durable than traditional concrete stepping stones, but the upfront cost is prohibitive. Would be nice if the manufacturer offered these in a discounted multi-pack.

      Nice design easy to install.
      Recently moved to a house where there are drainage holes right in the middle of the back yard. I purchased one to fit over a round pipe but was still left with a 4-5 inch height difference between the drain cover and ground around the drain (a perfect ankle breaker if not looking where you walk). This square cover did the trick and makes the ground level and accident free. It's also very sturdy, well made and pretty to look at.

      Beautiful Grate
      This is a beautiful grate. It is thick and sturdy; very well made and looks like it will last a very long time. I have included some pictures for you to see what I mean. It is very strong and should wear very well thru various seasons of weather. The lip gives a nice finished appearance. If you watch Home Depot's video it tells you what size screws you need for the grate. Very pleased. Very good value for the price!

      These things cost nearly as much as an entire catch basin. Why are they so expensive?

        Very nice product and works well. I bought 2. I thought the price was a little bit high. 2 of these with shipping and taxes were $75. Just too high. I hope last.
