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. 

Can I order the drain cover and the center cap for the FCxxx separately?

Yes, please use the following part numbers:

(xxx - color codes)
P/N FC09xxx = Full Circle drain cover only and screws
P/N FC08xxx = Center Logo Cap and screws
P/N FC20xxx = Full Circle drain cover, logo cap, and screws.

Does the FCxxx 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 FCxxx replace any other manufacturer drain covers?

The Full Circle is a patented design that is exlusive to AquaStar Pool Products and does not replace any other manufacture's drain covers. The FCxxx cover will not fit into a Blue Square Eclipse drain.

When the cover for the FCxxx expires, do I need to replace the sump too?

The existing sump must be in good condition, or else it must be replaced. For a VGB compliant replacement both the grate and center cap 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 FCxxx 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.

In some areas I'm being told I can install single-unblockable drain covers as a single outlet and in other areas I'm told it is not permissible, why is this?

A small percentage of states and regions have not adopted the most recent codes and standards that allow the use of single-unblockable drains. Only one VGB unblockable drain is required to comply with the VGB Pool & Spa Safety Act, International Swimming Pool and Spa Code (ISPSC), ANSI/APSP/ICC-5 residential pool standard, and ANSI/APSP/ICC 7 (2006 & 2013), provided the flow rating engraved on the cover equals or exceeds the maximum flow rate of the specific system. California, Texas, Arizona and several other states have adopted the ISPSC as an optional building and remodeling code that allows single-unblockable installations.
