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 WAV9WRxxx?

The WAV9-xxx is a component part number of the suction outlet fitting assembly (SOFA). The assembly part number is the WAV9WRxxx, 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 WAV9WRxxx 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 WAV9WRxxx replace any other manufacturer drain covers?

Yes, in addition to fitting all AquaStar 9'' square frames, the WAV9WRxxx also fits Pentair's 3/4'' deep square 9'' frames with 4x4 screw hole pattern.

This product cannot be ordered without a frame, if the frame is not necessary for the replacement, please discard it.

When the cover for the WAV9WRxxx 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 may be to consider installing our 14'' Square Anti-Entrapment Suction Outlet Cover, Model# 914xxx (xxx = Color Code). The 914xxx can be installed with an optional Brass Anchor Kit , Model# BIK4, 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 WAV9WRxxx 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.
