Why Must I Have 2 Main Drains?

2 drains are used for safety. Being placed at least 3' apart, it prevents anyone or anything from being entrapped on the drain covers. The Viginia Graeme Baker Pool & Spa Safety Act of 2008 requires that all existing public pools be equipped with anti entrapment drain covers.  Newly constructed private pools be equipped with dual main drains.
