    Main Drain Cover colors

    So I see there is white, grey, and I have seen some that allow the same pebble finish to be added in the middle, are these legal? I did find a couple threads on these saying they don't handle as many GPM? Anyone have experience? I have two mains in the pool and two in the spa. Both pool and spa have 3"PVC suction lines.

    Re: Main Drain Cover colors

    We had our pool refinished a few years ago and they replaced the old white ones with grey ones that have a star in the center. We like the grey ones better as the white ones start to fade and turn yellowish after some years. Not sure about the Pebble coated ones but I really don't like the looks of those for some reason.

    Bmoreswim had a link for covers that could be covered with your plaster. It was in another thread, but I can't remember which one. Do you have a channel drain or 2 round drains (Im too lazy to go back and look!)?

    We have channel drain and its gray. Originally the plaster company put on black and when the PB saw it he made them come back and change it out. IF I had known about the other drain covers, I would have asked about them. Gray looks fine with my Blue Surf.
