Missing sewer vent covers can create tripping hazards and collect garbage. We strongly encourage property owners to replace sewer vent covers in front of their property as soon as possible in order to avoid fines and prevent pedestrian injuries that they be may responsible for and lead to litigation.
Property owners are responsible for the maintenance and repair of sidewalks under Section 706 of the Public Works Code.
The following list is a sampling of vendors that carry both round and square sewer vent covers. This list is compiled for the convenience of the recipient, and no recommendation is inferred or implied.
Plumbing supply and hardware stores that advertise plumbing supplies may also carry sewer vent covers, although not all such stores carry the round variety. Purchasers should take a tracing of the opening on the sewer vent frame to properly match the cover to the frame.
