Custom clean-out covers from Creative Cleanout Covers are designed for homeowners and businesses looking to add a decorative touch to the traditional chrome clean-out.

The 5 1/2- (Hermosa Dome, Laguna Dome, Square) and 6-inch (Hermosa Flat, Laguna Flat, custom Seashell) UV-resistant covers are available in six designs and five finishes, including unpainted. Custom designs are available. Colors include Beachnut Bronze, Seaside Silver, Glamour Gold, Newport Copper and Paint Grade White (paintable).

The concept for the cover came from company founder Duane Heaton, a master plumber with 30 years experience.

“For so many years, we’ve only had this chrome plate that we’ve been putting on these very unique custom homes and some nice commercial products that we do down here in Orange County (California),” he says.

“I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had people tell me, ‘This isn’t acceptable on my house. Is there anything you can do about it? Is there anything better out there?’ And the answer is always, no. So I got the idea to come up with my own line of designer cleanout covers.”

Made from injection-molded ABS plastic, the covers snap into place using a rare earth magnet.

“We still have a screw behind the plate that screws into the clean-out plug in the wall,” Heaton says. “We adjust that screw to the correct depth and click on the magnetic cover. It has 22 pounds of pull strength.”

A notch on the side of the cover enables it to be removed using a screwdriver.

Designed for indoor and outdoor use, applications include residential and commercial retrofits, new construction, hotels and restaurants. 714/841-4930;
