Are you trying to mess w/the internals or just drain it? I've never 'opened it up' per say but I'm assuming all you have to do is get at those torx screws along the perimeter on the top of the OCC.

If you're just trying to drain it though, the drain bolt is the one at the bottom.

I've already taken all the screws out with no effect, however I only wanted to do this to get more mesh in. I have been told you can just shove it in the little hole on the bottom drain. Thanks for your help though

If I'm not mistaken the torq screws up top are just for looks.

yep, just for looks.
Once you unscrew the bolts, if you don't seal them up when putting them back in it will leak even more.
