ELIZABETH, NJ — Hayward® Pool Products, the market leader in swimming pool products, puts safety first with its category-leading pool drain covers and frames. In fact, its High-Flow Drain Covers and Frames are rated by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) to have the highest flow rates which meet Virginia Graeme Baker (VGB) Pool and Spa Safety Act compliance.

VGB promotes the safe use of pools, spas, and hot tubs by imposing mandatory federal requirements for suction entrapment avoidance. It is administered by the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission. Hayward High-Flow Drain Covers easily meet VGB standards in addition to meeting the individual needs for both new installations and replacement of Hayward drain covers on existing pools and spas. These covers come in multiple square sizes, to accommodate requirements for both commercial and residential installations and complement our existing line of standard flow-rate covers. Hayward High-Flow Drain Covers are ideal for facilities with maximum flow rate requirements.

Some key features of Hayward High Flow Drain Covers include:

  • Meets or exceeds all relevant ASME/ANSI performance standards
  • IAPMO Certified ASME A112.19.8a-2008
  • Exclusive inner frame offers the only compliant method for Hayward drain cover replacement
  • Fast, easy installation

"When it comes to pools, spas and related equipment, safety is most important" says Hayward Industries Safety Product Manager Joe DiOrio. "Whether it is a commercial facility or a backyard pool, VGB compliance should be first on the servicers and pool owners mind."
