Title (EN) COVER FOR A SWIMMING POOL MAIN DRAIN
(FR) COUVERCLE DE CREPINE DE VIDANGE DE PISCINE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A main drain (10) of a swimming pool has a housing (14), a removable cover (12), and one elongated opening (40) formed therein. In one embodiment, the housing is oval in shape with the elongated opening running parallel to the major dimension of the housing to provide a single extended opening that would be difficult for a swimmer to obstruct. In an alternative embodiment, the elongated opening extends over a round cover and is H-shaped. Each elongated opening (40) is formed to have an internally curved flange (42) to provide a smooth edge and structural stiffness for the cover (12). The single extended opening with its smooth, rounded edges reduces the likelihood of entrapment and entanglement and allows large debris, such as leaves, to pass more easily into the main drain (10).
(FR)La crépine de vidange (10) d'une piscine comporte un corps (14), un couvercle (12) amovible, et une fente allongée (40) pratiquée dans le couvercle. Dans une exécution, le corps est ovale et la fente est unique et parallèle à la dimension principale du corps et donc difficilement obstruable par le pied d'un nageur. Dans une variante, la fente en H est pratiquée dans un couvercle arrondi. Chaque fente allongée (40) présente un rebord recourbé vers l'intérieur donc sans aspérité et renforçant le couvercle (12). La fente unique allongé réduit le risque de coincement ou de prise, mais permet aux gros débris tels que les feuilles de passer plus facilement dans la conduite de vidange (10).
