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 1216xxx 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 1216xxx replace any other manufacturer drain covers?

Yes, the 1216xxx is a universal drain cover that fits into most 12'' mudframes on the market, but keep in mind it expands out to 16''. It comes with two different adapter plates that fit both 3/4'' and 1'' deep 12'' square mudframes.

In a situation where the drain cover cannot attach to the mudframe, for example, if it is broken, the 1216xxx can be installed using an optional brass anchor kit (BIK4) directly to the pool floor.

In addition to fitting all AquaStar 12'' square frames and 12'' retrofit drain covers, the 1216xxx also fits sumps/frames manufactured by Pentair, Hayward, Waterway, American, and PacFab.

What does the colored dot in the center of the 1216xxx signify? Is it the expiration/manufacturing date? Does the color of the dot matter?

The colored dot is not related to expiration or the manufacturing date.

The colored dot is AquaStar's unique trademarked compliance button that signifies that the drain cover is compliant to the 2008 VGB standard.

Its bright color is to make it easy for Department of Health and building officials' to see during inspection and verification processes.

Drain cover expiration starts on the date that the drain cover is installed.

Where can I find the manufacturing date for the 1216xxx 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.
