The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has announced a recall of certain swimming pool and inground spa drain covers. Tarrant County Public Health requests that swimming pool owners/operators and consumers who have one of the recalled pool or spa drain covers immediately contact the manufacturer or distributor to receive a replacement or retrofit, depending on the make and model.
Currently, this recall affects only kiddie pools, wading pools, inground spas, and swimming pools with only one main drain, but since this recall is a recent development, it is recommended to monitor the CPSC Web site for any changes. The retrofit or replacement of installed covers is not required in pools with multiple drain systems or gravity drainage systems, or for covers installed before Dec. 19, 2008.
