Hi all, trying to close up for the season, and as usual, I am struggling with how to plug my Paramount SDX sidewall drain. For the record, this system has been my arch nemesis and I hate it! Every year it is a challenge to close because of this sidewall drain. I have had countless calls and emails with the folks at Paramount, and while they have been responsive and attempted to help, nothing ever seems to work. Rubber compression plugs don't hold and they just pop out when up I try to install then and blow the line out. Last year, I got a3" PVC (clean out) plug and it seemed to work with lots of Teflon tape. Much to my chagrin, this was the last step of the process before the cover and therefore everything else was done for the closing, so I could not undo everything and keep the pool running, so had to cover up and will have to pull the cover off if I can find a new SDX solution for this year. Not sure why, but the Teflon route on the drain plug is not working (tried 5 times today!). Does anyone have any ideas?? I was wondering if anyone makes a 3" PVC plug with an o ring (like a standard return plug)? Appreciate any help, especially for those who own or have serviced this wall drain. Thanks!
