Building a new pool or renovating an existing one? Take a look at our Hidden Drain cover...

The HIDE Drain Cover is a solution to concealing your exterior surface water drainage outlet. The cover is designed to be lined or filled with the surrounding surface material. This makes the drain cover inconspicuous and virtually disappears.

Sizing has been standardized to conform to exterior patio spaces and standard drainage piping. The HIDE Drain Cover is available in 3 depths suitable for infill material with a thickness of 10/12mm, 20mm, and 30mm. Select this thickness from the above drop down list...

The HIDE Drain Cover is made up of three components:
The five sided tray to support the inlay, made of 316 marine grade stainless sized at 300mm x 300mm.

The HIDE Drain Recess Frame supports and centres the lid and allows 1.2 metres of 5-6mm clearance for water flow. The size of the frame is 314mm square with the depth 8mm more that the tray required by the selected infill material. The Recess Frame base opening size is 220mm square.

The stainless steel key to allow easy access for regular maintenance, cleaning or clearing the water intake slots.

Water flow and drainage capacities will vary based on your individual site requirements including, square meterage, gradient and weather conditions. Consult your plumber for specific product suitability and requirements.

Ita good idea to regularly open your HIDE product and check for and remove any leaf-litter or debris which may have gathered inside the HIDE Edge Protector. If not removed, the debris may cause the HIDE lid to become loose or to sit unevenly.

Check regularly to ensure the HIDE product is fitting well, and is sitting evenly in its recessed area.


Occasionally you might notice some cosmetic discolouration on the stainless steel components of the HIDE product, often known as staining Although HIDE lids are made of marine grade 316 stainless steel, within water environments normal for visible surface rusting to occur. The issue, if treated whenever noticed, will not affect the structural performance of the HIDE product.

Typically the tea-staining will form on the underside of the HIDE lid where residues and salt deposits gather. To clean, all you need is a stainless steel scourer, soapy water and a little elbow grease. Just be sure to use the scourer parallel to the grain direction of the HIDE lid. Rinse thoroughly when done.

Please be aware that if the surface staining is allowed to build up over time, possible rust bleeding may leach onto the HIDE lid inlay or surrounding paving. This is not a fault of the lid and is completely avoidable with occasional cleaning. If allowed to occur over a prolonged period, the leaching may not be able to be removed.

Please note that rain washing is not sufficient in most applications.
