    Unhappy Leaves covering basement stairs drain

    Our basement can be accessed through steps leading down from our back yard. A lot of water collects on that bottom landing, and unfortunately so do leaves. We are periodically away from the house for a week at a time, and also don't go to the back of the house so often.

    I would love to find some sort of dome or cover to prevent leaves from completely blocking this drain even if it goes neglected for a week. I have been searching all over, and cannot find a product to do that.

    That is a common problem, bout the only option you have is to either buy a stairwell cover or build one yourself.
    Here are a couple of pre made products to look at

    It would be a fairly easy DIY to make one of your own, to allow light in (if needed) you could cover it in polycarbonate that is available in a variety of colors.
