Swimming pool vacuum release systems are designed to help prevent main drain entrapment. They work by monitoring the vacuum on the suction side of the pool or spa pump. When a blockage occurs in the main drain or skimmer, a sudden rise in vacuum will cause the unit to shut down pump operation and activate an audible alarm. Any swimmer could get caught on a main drain and a vacuum release system is a necessary backup emergency system to turn off your pool pump.
