    Low Profile Drain Covers

    Elmo, my poolvergnuegen, has a propensity to get stuck on my main drains ... Pentair drains that are slightly domed ... does anyone know of a flat replacement drain cover ???

    Thanks ...

    due to anti-entrapment laws, I doubt you'll find anything. IMO

    I did replace Elmo's front tires ... and it helped for a while ... I actually I got the wrong tires ... they don't appear as robust as the original ones ... maybe I'll try this again if I can be sure I get the right ones ...
