Forum Title: removing square drain plugs from skimmer
This might be a stupid question. When removing the square drain plugs from the skimmer should I be turning counter-clockwise or clockwise? The pool company closed the pool and I'm having a **** of a time trying to unscrew the drain plugs. I've been using a wrench to turn counter-clockwise but the drain plug isn't budging. There's not a lot of room in the skimmer for me to get sufficient torque to unscrew the plug. Thanks.

hmm...any chance you can snap a pic of the plug?

since I've never seen a left handed threaded pipe I'm going with 'righty tighty, lefty loosey'. So counter-clockwise is the way to turn it when looking down on the top of it.
