Product Specific FAQ

Click on a question to see the answer. If you do not see your question below scroll down to the bottom to send us your question. 

Does the R12MFxxx have an expiration date?

Yes. The VGB law that went into effect in 2008 requires that all public pools and spas have drain covers that comply with the ASME/ANSI A112.19.8 performance standard, or any successor standard, currently ANSI/APSP 16-2011. This standard requires that manufacturers determine a life expectancy and place a permanent mark with ''Life: X Years'' on each cover to indicate lifespan. At AquaStar, based on UV, structural and fastener testing, we've determined that our drain covers should be replaced every five years from the date of installation, as stated in our instructions. Please look above under ''Support Documents'' to download a Certificate of Compliance for this product. Please fill out and safely store this document, it may be requested during inspection processes.

Will the R12MFxxx replace any other manufacturer drain covers?

Yes, in addition to fitting all AquaStar 12'' retrofit models, the R12MFxxx also fits frames 12'' square 1'' deep mudframes manufactured by Hayward, Waterway, American, and PacFab.

When the cover for the R12MFxxx expires, do I need to replace the mudframe/sump too?

The existing frame/sump must be in good condition, or else it must be replaced.

The drain cover's screws must securely fasten to the frame and have a minimum of three threads of engagement.

We do not make a mud frame for the R12MFxxx.

If a replacement mud frame is needed an alternative option to replastering in a new mud frame may be to consider installing our 16'' Square Anti-Entrapment Suction Outlet Cover, Model# 1216xxx (xxx = Color Code). The 1216xxx can be installed with an optional Brass Anchor Kit , Model# BIK4, that will allow the cover to be installed directly to the pool floor without a mud frame. A skilled diver with the appropriate tools may be able to complete this installation without having to drain the pool.

Where can I find the manufacturing date for the R12MFxxx suction outlet cover?

The manufacture date is molded on to each drain cover, it is represented by a small dial that has the year in the center and an arrow pointing to the month.

Does this drain cover replace Hayward 12’’ x 12’’ drain covers? If so, how does it work? The Hayward drain has screws directly in the corners of the cover but the R12MFxxx does not.

Yes, our R12MFxxx replaces both of Haywards Low Velocity and High Flow 12’’ drain covers (Hayward P/N WGX1032BHF2, WGX1032BLV2). Hayward drain covers have screw holes on the corners that attach to an inner frame. The inner frame attaches to the mud frame by screws that are located near the corners, these screw holes match our R12MFxxx. To replace the Hayward drain cover with the R12MFxxx please remove the inner frame. With the inner frame removed the R12MFxxx will fit directly into the 1’’ deep mud frame. Ensure that each screw is secure with at least three threads of engagement.
