Eight Manufacturers Recall Pool and Spa Drain Covers
The recalled drain covers were incorrectly rated to handle the flow of water through the cover, causing a possible entrapment hazard for swimmers and bathers. The manufacturers involved are A&A, AquaStar, Color Match, Custom Molded Products, Hayward Pool Products, Pentair Water Pool & Spa, Rising Dragon, and Waterway.
Consumers affected by the recall should contact the manufacturer for a replacement or a retrofit, especially if the covers were installed in kiddie pools, wading pools, and in-ground spas. If you have a pool with multiple drain or gravity drainage systems or with covers that were installed before December 19, 2008, you may not be affected by the recall.
