The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has issued a massive recall of swimming pool drain covers due to the risk of entrapment. It also includes spa drain covers. More than 1 million units are affected from 8 different manufacturing companies. The manufacturing companies involved in the recall include:
- A&A Manufacturing – Phoenix, AZ;
- AquaStar Pool Products Inc. – San Diego, CA;
- Color Match Pool Fittings – Surprise, AZ;
- Custom Molded Products – Tyrone, GA;
- Hayward Pool Products – Elizabeth, NJ;
- Pentair Water Pool and Spa – Sanford, NC;
- Rising Dragon USA – E. Sweetwater, TN; and
- Waterway Plastics – Oxnard, CA.
The recall is a result of the drain covers being incorrectly rated to handle water flow. Swimmers and spa users could become entrapped and possibly drown. Consumers are being advised to call the manufacturer of their drain cover if they have an affected unit. A replacement or retrofit will be sent, depending on the type of pool drain cover. If you or a loved one has sustained serious or even fatal injuries as a result of a defective product, then your next step should be to speak with a New York defective product attorney.
