Swimming Pool Glossary: Main Drain

Usually just referred to as "the drain," the main drain is usually found on the suction side of your pool's pump. It is located in th deepest part of the hot tub or pool.

This drain isn't the same as the drain found at the bottom of your kitchen sink. The main drain in your pool is actually made up of numerous parts, many of which you have to buy separately. It is through this main drain that you remove water from the pool.
