Thread: Main drain cover busted

    Main drain cover busted

    OK, somehow my 17 year old managed to bust the main drain cover in my pool..even though it was 8 1/2 feet down. I'm having a hard time trying to locate a replacement. It's got a big hole in it.

    The markings on it are Ccsi (Fancy C__) 4-1-10-20

    Any help at all would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Rabbit.

    Re: Main drain cover busted

    I'll answer just to bump this thread up to the top.

    Only thing I can think of is to go back to the pool builder and ask.

    Any pieces get into the bottom drain plumbing?

    Sorry, I'm no help.

    Re: Main drain cover busted

    It's actually a non functional drain. The pool use to have pop-ups at one time. The previous owner opted to cover those up when they had it re-plastered. It would appear they also did something to the plumbing for the main drain as well. The pipe is there, everything looks right but it has no suction and I can't find a pipe on the other end. So my replacement cover is just for cosmetics only. Kind of sad, but not much I can do about it without digging all over trying to find the other end of the pipe...if there is one.
