It’s official! This week marks the start of summer. As you begin the season of barbeques and pool parties, is your backyard safe for your family and friends?
On May 26, 2011 the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission issued a voluntary recall of pool and spa drain covers from eight manufacturers, sold between December 2008 and April 2011. The impacted drain covers are being recalled due to incorrect rating information related to water flow, creating a potential entrapment hazard to users.
