    Those are plugs typically used to winterize the pipes. Sounds like someone put them in your floor to close of the floor drains and thus have no suction or water flow through the floor drains. Now whether this was done to winterize or whether this was done to seal them off due to an underground leak (pretty rare) if anyone's guess.

    How long have you owned the pool?
    Who winterized your pool last year?
    Do you ever remember the main drains working?

    Did you buy the house with the pool? I wonder if they were never removed from the previous winterizing.
