new guy here sorry I am having a issue with my pool plumbing I cannot figure out how to get suction to the main drain in the deep end. I had a guy open my pool and he couldnt figure out the plumbing there are two pipes that meet and go into my pump if I switch the valve to either side it shuts off one or the other skimmer in my pool. I cannot figure out what controls my main drain for the life of me. I know its a fairly older pool and was told they did things a bit different back in the day 15-20 years ago. The pool was put in by anthony and sylvan. I took a swim yesterday and cleaned out the main drain which was gunked up with loose fallen tile and algae. I replaced the two floor drain grates and turned the pump back on and still NOTHING. I did notice however that there is a screw looking mechanism (about the size of a half dollar) on the floor maybe 5 feet from the maindrain looks like pvc material im not sure if this has to do with anything but I need help vaccuming everyday is getting to be a pain in the butt. Am i missing something out near the pool, I was told it is possible that the main drain was capped due to previous leak or that I am just plain missing something. ANY HELP will be GREATTTTLY apppreciated im at a total loss, I have attempted to contact the old pool company to no avail the last home owner did nothing themselves they have no clue what I am even talking about.
