    What cover for this drain?

    We have 4 of these in our walls. 2 in the pool (we think? this is suction for the infloor cleaning system, which we have not turned on yet due to missing parts) and 2 in the spa, which we know have suction, for the therapy jets.

    What type of cover should I be looking for to fit these?

    Missing so much gear due to previous foreclosure, it's sad.

    All drain covers have to be VGB compliant to protect against entrapment. There are many different types of retrofit VGB covers. The best way is to go to a couple of pool stores with pictures and measurements and ask. Or you can call Inyo pools or sunplay and ask them -- they are generally helpful on the phone.

    Thanks! I'll get some measurements and we'll go exploring

    Look into the aquastar 8" MoFlo cover. Pretty generic cover that works for many applications.

    If two are plumbed together, the actual plumbing may provide the VGB compliance. That is the case in the wall returns in my pool.

    I know the two in the pool wall are plumbed together. I brushed over one, and it pushed bubbles out the other.
