I'm planning to redo a back entrance into the REO house I bought. There is this drain: see images which seems like it had a grate on it initially but was broken out?

enter image description here enter image description here enter image description here

It's hard to read - but it says: NDS 12 gray, 13 green, 11 black on the edge.

Does anyone know: How does one fixe or replaces something like that? would have to jackhammer concrete?

P.S. also - What do those numbers even mean?

EDIT: nvm. grate wasnt glued in. I was able to just pull it out by hand and then it turned out that it's a common thing Home Depot carries:

All fixed. thanks.

i don't know what the numbers mean but if you get a measurement of the opening and bring that to a metal fabrication shop they may be able to fabricate a screen for you. This would result in a small raised edge, but would eliminate the need to jackhammer the concrete. I don't know what area you live in but i know that most areas have some place like this by just doing a quick search on the internet

The simplest way to repair and install a new grate is to: cut away (with a fine toothed hacksaw blade) the remaining broken grate. Plug the hole with a rag to catch falling pieces. File or sand smooth the rough edges. measure the diameter of the opening (it looks to be 4 inches). purchase an appropriate sized drain grate at your local supply store. Finally here's the replacement partenter link description here. I discovered NDS stands for National Drainage Solutions. I think the color and number titles are descriptive headings for the size and shape of the drain and/or grate.
