VGB Pool Drain Covers

Most of the main drain and skimmer equalizer covers that were installed to comply with the Virginia Graeme Baker Pool and Spa Safety Act, were installed in April/May of 2009, and will need replacement in the spring of 2014.

Drain cover manufacturers were required to state a life span for each cover; with the majority of covers having a maximum life of 5 years, most covers will be due for replacement in 2014.

While a massive recall in 2011 meant many covers were replaced, some only needed an alteration, such as adding a spacer ring to provide added height and distance from the sump. Those may be up for replacement as well.
