ConsumerWatch: Manufacturers Recall Pool, Spa Drain Covers
WASHINGTON (CBS/AP) – 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 Thursday.
The agency said the recalled covers could pose a possible entrapment hazard to swimmers and bathers. They 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 and Tennessee-based Rising Dragon USA.
Consumers who have the recalled drain covers should immediately contact the manufacturer to receive a replacement or retrofit.
