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 R8MFxxx 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 R8MFxxx replace any other manufacturer drain covers?

Yes, in addition to fitting all AquaStar 8'' round retrofit models, the R8MFxxx also fits frames manufactured by Alloy Brass Foundry (ABF), Afras, Splash, Sta-Rite, Swimquip, Caretaker/Polaris, Advanced (APP), Hayward and certain Custom Molded Products (CMP) covers.

At least two mud frame screws must be used to secure covers.

When the cover for the R8MFxxx 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.

If a replacement mud frame is needed an alternative option to replastering in a new mud frame would be to consider installing our A10 Sumpless Universal 10'' Round Suction Outlet Cover, Model# A10RCFRxxx (xxx = Color Code). The A10RCFRxxx comes with a plastic anchor kit 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 R8MFxxx 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.
