    MDX速 Main Drain - Paddock Pool Drain Clogged

    Any ideas on how to unclog this thing. Everything is working fine, yet the drain does seem to be clogged. Any help would be appreciated.

    Re: MDX速 Main Drain - Paddock Pool Drain Clogged

    Here is what the paramount blog says (http://kurtatparamount.wordpress.com/technical-forum/)...cannister bag is fine. not sure if i want to dive down and unscrew the drain cover. anyone give a better explanation about what he means about isolating the drain line at the filter and using a garbage bag?

    If a debris canister is present on the deck (ADR), make sure the bag/basket inside of it is clean, and that the balance/equalizer line from the ADR to the pool is functioning properly and water is being maintained above the internal clear lid at the same level as the pool. A full canister bag means the drain cannot draw enough water which can lead to a clogged drain. Consumers should always check and clean the canister bag anytime they clean their skimmers.
    If the drain is clogged, you may either have to remove the cover and clear out the drain, or you may be able to clear the debris by isolating the drain line at the filter pump and blocking the secondary suction in the pool using a garbage bag or equivalent.

    Could you describe what equipment you have in more detail? It sounds like you have a Paramount in floor cleaning system? Do you also have a main drain debris canister on the deck?
