Eight Manufacturers Recall Pool and Spa Drain Covers

The Consumer Product Safety Commission recalled pool and in-ground spa drain covers by eight manufacturers today.

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.

To find out if your drain cover has been recalled, contact the toll-free Drain Cover Recall Hotline at 866-478-3521 any time, see the photos at CPSC.gov, or visit the Drain Cover Recall website.
