Waterway Plastics has recalled about 26,000 of Designer Pro Series Suction Covers, as the drain suction cover can become disengaged from the spa wall, posing an entrapment hazard to consumers.
The company has received 70 reports of drain covers detaching, but no injuries have been reported. The spas were purchased from Pool and Spa dealers nationwide from June 2011 to June 2013 for between $3,500 and $16,000 for the spas.
Consumers should immediately stop using spas with the recalled drained covers and contact Waterway Plastics for inspection instructions and information on receiving a free replacement cover.
The recall involves model number 640-52XX S, printed on top of the outside edge of the plastic. The round covers are black and silver and were installed in select spas manufactured by Catalina Spas, Four Winds Spas, Dimension One Spas, and Sunrise Spas from June 2011 to June 2013.
