    Main Drain Cover Question 2017

    So, did you figure out how to remove your grate? We have this same drain cover, which also appears to NOt have any SCREWS, however we have a clog in our drain pipe. So we HAVE to remove ours to clear the clog...any advice would be appreciated!

    Thanks, Clogged Guy

I assume these are anti-entrapment covers correct? Also from the attached parts schematic. They show two screws that mounts this cover in. However, there are no screws installed in my drain covers. The holes are empty but the covers are in pretty tight. Is it possible they are glued in or do these covers screw in as well? The covers I have look like the example on the left with the grates.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Can you post a pic of the cover?

    Why do you thing your main drain is clogged? It is pretty unusual for that to happen?

    Is your main drain plumbed directly to the equipment pad, or is it plumbed into the bottom of the skimmer?
