recessed clean out covers have always been a problem for me. Basin wrenches don't ever get a good enough grip and or leverage to remove the covers. what is the best tool to use to remove clean out covers that are recessed in the floor 3+ inches deep
I use a eureka cleanout plug tool
I have one its not good for anything below a few inches recessed into the floor. Also cant seem to get enough leverage on the tool to turn the cap out
If I can't remove them with my tool , I proceed to burst them out with a hammer & chisel.
There are other tools on the market , but this is my method.
yeah we all know you can chisel a cover off i was asking about any other tools out there that will make it easy
I got 12" square steel bars the same size as the clean out. 3/8" through 1 1/2" just cut with a sawzall and grind off the burrs they fit into the cleanout and they're durable for wrenching.
thats not such a bad idea but thats only going to work for the square caps that wont help with the older hexigon caps and or the inverted caps
If you know somebody who welds, maybe they could fabricate what you need.
