Frank Wall Enterprises partners with the Quaker Plastics Corporation to provide our customers with a wide range of pool deck drain options. The Quaker drains that we sell come in a wide variety of shapes, colors, and sizes to ensure that you can find exactly what you need. Square drains are the most popular in terms of shape and drains that measure between two and four inches are our most popular sizes.
Quaker Drain Buying Options
Some people prefer to buy two or more corner piece drains while others opt for straight lengths. If you choose the first option, you should know that corner drains are manufactured at a 90-degree angle and they fit together perfectly. As far as color, some people select bright white so their pool guests can clearly see the drain. Another option is to choose a color that matches the color of the concrete and blends in nicely.
What is the Purpose of a Quaker Drain?
Installing a Quaker drain allows for the proper drainage of water on the deck or patio around your pool. When people swimming in your pool splash water onto the deck, it travels through a grate and into the drain you have installed. The company installing your pool will let you know if the drain will send the water back into the pool, into the sewer system, or to the drainage system that collects storm water. A pool deck drain is a must to prevent accidents from slipping on the deck as well as eliminate stagnant water that can become contaminated.
How to Choose the Size of Your Quaker Drain
When determining the size of your pool deck drain, you need to carefully consider the depth, length, and width to make sure that it can move water as quickly and efficiently as possible. Typically, you will need a drain with greater depth and width if you anticipate that a lot of water will pass through it. The benefit of purchasing a Quaker drain is that the company sells them in small segments so you can snap them together when it comes time to install your drain.
To determine the length of your pool deck drain, you first need to decide if you want to place deck drainage on only one side of the pool or you prefer to surround the pool with it. You will need to measure the length according to your decision. If you have difficulty with any part of this process, do not hesitate to contact a pool parts specialist at Frank Wall Enterprises for help. We will explain how to take the measurements as well as determine how much water passes through your pool drain on a typical day.
