Help finding main drain cover

Postby eegz » Tue 09 May, 2017 10:17

I bought a house with an older pool (20-30 years old) that has a broken drain cover.

There are no screw holes in the pool drain, the cover just slid into the drain hole.
I can't seem to find a drain cover like this anywhere.

The drain hole in the pool is 6 3/4" inches across with a lip that is about 5/8" wide. The cavity is about 8" deep with the drain pipe heading out the side.

Can anyone point me in the direction of where I could find a new cover that would slide into this hole?

Thanks in advance.

I suggest you post on trouble free pool. They have a lot of people who could point you in the right direction
