We are building a 14x30 (15,700 gallons) gas-heated rectangle pool with salt water in Kansas City with 4ft shallow end and 6ft deep end with auto cover. My builder has allotted 4-5 jets, 1 skimmer and 1 bottom drain. However, he's telling me they've started shying away from bottom drains because without one there is less leak chance, better suction and less obstacles for auto cleaner. He's recommending we drop the bottom drain and go with 1 or 2 skimmers total. He acknowledges there might be a subtle temperature difference in water depth without the pool drain but it won't be too severe since the deep end is only 6ft. Anyone have thoughts on skipping a pool drain? Will I need to add a 2nd skimmer or can I get by with just 1 skimmer if I don't have a pool drain?
