    I'm trying to identify a suitable drain cover to replace the half-broken piece of concrete that's doing a bad job of holding the drain pipe in place - see photo. From the measurements I've taken it looks like the inner diameter of the outer ring is approx 160mm.

    The drain pipe is only friction fit so I can remove it to fit a cover. Just need to find a suitable item. Access is somewhat awkward, being in at the end of a 20cm gap between my balcony (~ 1m long) & building wall, so something i can slide fit round the drain pipe would help in fitting. Can anyone point me in the right direction ?

    Search Google for round drain cover , thousands of options

    If you get a plastic one you can trim it so you can fit it easily

    Yeah, been doing that - as you say thousands of options. hence the ask.

    Given the variable quality of internet sourced items I like to get specific recommendations wherever possible. hopefully minimises the accumulation of things that don't work too.
