        I didn't think You could reduce the size of the opening .

          as per the upc. largest c/o required is a 3.5'' and typically the c/o is 1 pipe size smaller than the pipe. an ibco/ iron body cleanout is similar.

          the 4'' tom kap is a 3'' or 3.5'' plug. depends on the brand you buy.

          not really an issue as the par blades will spring open when shove through the top. the spiral say and 4 blade cutter will not spring.

          if they wanted to spend the big money and have a nice finished look. an ibco with a "mikro" cleanout cover is the proper way. jr smith, zurn, frank pattern also make similar products. but theses all require the c/o to be set before the pour at the proper finish height.

          not so with the tom kap. they are installed after the pour.

            What amazes me is the number of plumbers that still have no idea how to do a proper under slab rough. If it was done right there is no need for all this Micky Mouse crap. Same thing with the idiots that rough the water and drain a couple inches too low on a lav or k-sink so you have to use extensions and stupidly long supply tubes to finish out. Takes more time and more money and it's a good way to get your butt fired if you work for me. Arggggggggggg

              I'm sorry I caused NH Master to go postal and The Master to see an excuse for another 50 post argument, because I didn't give all the info up front. First of all, it wasn't done by a plumber. It's a CO for a storm drain line laid by a laborer with the finish height close, but a little high, which could have been handled properly if the mason laying the patio stones had raised a red flag instead of just burying it. Because it's for a storm drain line, I don't think a 3" opening will effect the ability to keep the line clean. I just wanted some info on an easy, non invasive fix, which I had already, (a 3" hub co) but wanted to know if there was something better and readily available because it's on the GC's punch list and he asked if we could handle it ASAP. I checked into the TOM-KAP and no one stocks it locally. I didn't have time to wait for a UPS delivery. Every time I pay for next day it still takes 3 days to get the product in my hand, which really pisses me off.

                        So my question is....Where are all the codebook thumpers hiding?

                        Not much of a code book thumper but the IPC 06' section 708 is all I can find on cleanouts..

                          Not to worry, I'll have My friend Domonic bring the fitting over.

                                I have run into the same situation, called the inspector, explained it and he said it would be fine. Inspectors here had to be plumbers for 9 years before being an inspector though. Good luck in San Mateo with that!
