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. 

The 32'' Propeller Drain has a unique design, what applications is it most suited for and how does it install?

The 32PDxxx is a special drain cover that is designed to convert round drain covers up to 10'' in diameter into VGB compliant single-unblockable drains.

Single unblockable drain covers are VGB compliant as single outlets and do not require an additional Safety Vacuum Release System (SVRS) or be hydrolically split.

The propeller drain's unique frame is installed directly to the surface of the pool using a two part underwater epoxy (not included) and a plastic anchor kit (included). The flange in the middle of the frame covers the exisiting outlet.

A diver with the appropriate tools and experiance may be able to complete a compliant installation without needing to drain the pool.

Does the 32PDxxx 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.

Can I order just the cover and screws for replacement if I do not need the sump/frame?

Yes, if you need just the Pin Hole 32'' drain cover and new stainless steel hardware for a replacement, please use part number 32CDPHNFxxx.

The 32'' Pin Hole drain cover is the only 32'' drain cover that is compliant with 32PDxxx (xxx = Color Code).

When the cover for the 32PDxxx expires, do I need to replace the propeller frame too?

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

The new 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 32PDxxx 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.

Why do some areas require builders to split single-unblockable drain covers?

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.
