Have you seen this story? The little boy is very lucky to be recovering after an entrapment in the main drain. I'm sure more details will come out as this goes through the courts, but I am surprised to hear that the drain cover on this pool allowed a 5-year-old's arm be be pulled in. I am guessing it to be a case of either the cover being off entirely or broken or something.
As we contemplate our pool remodel, we are planning to reinstate our main drain (it was capped at some time during the years) and put in dual drains at least three feet apart. What else should we be looking for to keep the drain from being a hazard?
