Pool Drain Cover Recall

On May 26th, the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission issued a news release stating there is a voluntary recall of several retrofit or replacement drain covers that were installed new or as a result of the “Virginia Graeme Baker Pool & Safety Act” which was effective on Dec 19, 2008.

Per the recall “The drain covers were incorrectly rated to handle the flow of water through the cover, which could pose a possible entrapment hazard to swimmers and bathers."

Visit CPSC Pool Drain Recall for more information. Each firm below has a website with photos of the recalled drain cover models. Please verify that your pool is not subject to this recall, or if your pool has a recalled drain cover, take immediate steps to have the drain cover(s) replaced.

Eight Manufacturers are cooperating with the recall:
