We bought this house a year ago and even tho the main drain is capped off and not in use-- it passed inspection bc apparently as long as the skimmer is working hey don't have to have the main drain operating. Frustrating! I am pretty sure this is why we can't get rid of mustard algae no matter the lengths we go to to SLAM, etc... it always creeps back...
So-- how much do you think it would cost to hire someone to re-plumb the main drain so it operates?
I was told the spot in the pic with the pipe sticking straight up with the cap on it is the main drain.
What we've been doing meanwhile is-a few times a week- leaving the vacuum right at the drain for a few hours.
I'm afraid to call someone bc
a) it will cost more than we can afford
b) so many pool companies in our area (North Florida) have bad reputations, so not sure who to trust enough to ask and not sure we can do it ourselves
Any advice? Is it no big deal to get it operating again? Or does it matter either way?
PS- I keep trying to upload the image of the pipes and even made it smaller, but it wont allow me to upload...?
