8 manufactures recall pool, spa drain covers

Eight manufacturers have voluntarily recalled about one million pool and in-ground spa drain covers because of incorrect water flow ratings. The U.S. Product Safety Commission announced the recall saying the covers could pose a possible entrapment hazard to swimmers and bathers.

The products were manufactured between December 2008 and April 2011. No injuries have been reported.

The manufacturers are:

  • Arizona-based A&A Manufacturing and Color Match Pool Fittings,
  • California-based AquaStar Pool Products Inc. and Waterway Plastic,
  • Georgia-based Custom Molded Products,
  • New Jersey-based Hayward Pool Products,
  • North Carolina-based Pentair Water Pool and Spa
  • Tennessee-based Rising Dragon USA.

Consumers who have the recalled drain covers should immediately contact the manufacturer to receive a replacement or retrofit.
