FAQs - Recessed Manhole Covers

How Do I Install Manhole Covers?

There are more complete guides available, but here is a rough guide:

Lift the manhole cover - Use a thin, strong tool like a screwdriver to carefully pry the lid from the frame if it is difficult to lift manually.

Inspect the manholes condition - Clear out any obstructions or debris, and wash the chamber with a hand brush and soapy water. Repair any cracks or voids in the walls with a strong mortar mix, and replace any fragmented bricks with a more durable type.

Assess the levels - Determine the correct depth for the manhole cover based on the completed levels of the paving.

Rework the shaft if needed - Repair any damage to the shaft and make sure it is clean and free of debris.

Bed down the manhole - Place the manhole cover onto the bedding frame and level it using the rim. Use the mortar mix to bed the cover down onto the frame and point the perimeter rim.

Cut the manhole in - Use a saw or other appropriate tool to cut the surfacing materials around the manhole cover.

Are Any Special Tools Needed To Install a Manhole Cover?

Here is a list of tools that may be needed for installing a manhole cover:

  • Screwdriver (or other thin, strong hand tool)
  • Hammer and bolster (if the cover is very rusty and fused to the frame)
  • Gloves
  • Trowel
  • Bucket
  • Hand brush
  • Mortar mix (cement, plastering sand, and a waterproofing admixture)
  • Bedding frame
  • Level
  • Saw or other appropriate cutting tool (for cutting in the surfacing materials around the cover)
  • Protective equipment (such as safety glasses and a hard hat)

Depending on the specific requirements of your project, you may need additional tools or materials. It is always best to carefully review the instructions and gather all necessary tools and materials before beginning any installation project.
