    trying to figure out my plumbing

    Guys,

    I bought a foreclosed house with a nice pool in May and learned alot about pools in general from TFP. Anyhow, I'm trying to figure out my pool plumbing and have some questions.

    The pool has 2 skimmers, 6 drains, and 3 returns. One set of 2 drains is on the bottom of the pool (pool main drain??). The 2 other sets are on the side walls. I'm guessing one of the set is for my water feature? But I have no idea what the other set of 2 drains are for. Any Ideas???

    If they are under your skimmer, than they are probably an equalizer that works in conjunction with your skimmer.

    One set is above the main pool drain in the deep end. Other set is kinda near the skimmer but still 6-8 feet away from it.

    Pool, spa, water feature, vanishing edge; what do you all have? How many pumps? That would help us figure it out.

    Sounds like a set for the main drains in the bottom, possibly an equalizer set up for the second skimmer and the pick ups for a water feature. One set could also be a return from solar or some type of deep water heat return perhaps.
