    New Guy with drain blues

    Hi new to the forums, bought a house with a 16x32 in ground vinyl pool a few years back and no issues I couldn't figure out until this year. One of my questions is it seems my main drain grill fell apart over winter. Do those grills only have 2 screws and any tips to replacing one?

    There are several designs of MD covers. However most do have two(2) screws. When replacing it you'll have to have an anti-entrapment model.

    You'll have to dive down to remove the old one and install the new one.
