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. 

Why is the part number WAV9-xxx engraved on each of the drain covers and not WAV18WRxxx?

The WAV9-xxx is a component part number of the suction outlet fitting assembly (SOFA). The assembly part number is the WAV18WRxxx, which includes the riser ring and mudframe. The "WR" stands for "with riser". The riser was an addition that was added to this product in 2011, it is required for a compliant installation.

Does the WAV18WRxxx 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 WAV18WRxxx replace any other manufacturer drain covers?

Yes, in addition to fitting all AquaStar 18'' square frames, the WAV18WRxxx also replaces Pentair's 18'' square frame covers with 3/4'' deep existing window grid frame and 4x4 screw hole pattern.

The WAV18WRxxx can be ordered without a frame if not needed during replacement. Please use part number WAV18WRNFxxx (xxx = Color Code) to order just the covers, risers, and hardware.

When the cover for the WAV18WRxxx 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.

Where can I find the manufacturing date for the WAV18WRxxx 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.

What does the colored dot in the center of the WAV18WRxxx 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.
