Plumbing shops sell them, (drain clean test plugs) not this fancy version I've only seen them in steel and rubber format, the small sizes should be about R150

I used the high pressure screw on lid with its glue on fitting in 75mm that is used for high pressure irrigation. The pipe wall thickness is at least 1cm. It would perhaps be more secure than that plug.
