New 18x36 pool with no main drain?

Gullible? Maybe. But not to the point that I could not see that Mark and Maynard is the same person.
Why would all of sudden someone try to answer year old question? Kind of weird. Usually responder first looks for a date. Specially if he has a degree.

For me I feel the need to have a main drain. And I agree it is critical. Mine has not been started yet, but will take note and make sure that main drain should be present.

What ???? Tell your contractor to stop playing and finish the job and install the main drains..The reason for two drains is to split the suction so there is no entrapment..There are laws in many states that require this. The law is called " the Virginia baker act" google it up.. For good pool water filtration and turnover you need the main drains. Picture filtering only the top water entering the skimmer and the bottom water staying stagnant.. I do hope he put in a skimmer or maybe he doesn't think you need one of those either. :crazy:
