Wood/Epoxy Sump Cover

Richard Jobe was faced with having a sump located in the middle of a prominent landscaped area in front of his Newburgh, Indiana home. His solution was to build a cover (middle) for the sump that would be light enough for one person to handle, strong enough to hold the weight of half a foot of pea stone, and water resistant enough to survive being buried underground. The cover is made from one sheet of ¾” plywood, glued together and well coated with WEST SYSTEM® epoxy. The sump will be hidden under the landscaping (bottom), but accessible, if necessary, by raking back the pea stone.
