    Cool Stegmeier Channel Drains - Replacing old channels - Best Options Please

    My Stegmeier channel drains are 29 years old, have become brittle, cap less in many areas and generally worn out. How do I go about replacing these drains. I have heard a circular saw with cement cutting blade is used to remove the old drain. Is this correct? Is there a replacement available?

    Can't you just replace the cap.

    kimkats and others: Here are two photos I had in my photo library. I can add others within a day or two (heavy rain at the moment).

    Chiefwej,

    As you can see in the earlier reply to kimkats (with photos), there is nothing left for which to attach the cap.

    If you read their website it's says the cap is put in with adhesive. Click on the link I gave you. I believe you just clear out the channel and apply a small bead of adhesive along each side of the opening, then push in the cap. You just need to be sure that it's the right width, this is for their 2 inch wide Super Drain not the 1.6 inch standard deck drain. You can contact them for more details.
