After receiving 70 consumer complaints, Waterway Plastics is recalling 26,000 spa drain covers.

The drain suction cover can become detached from the spa wall, increasing the risk that a spa user will become trapped.

The recall affects Waterway Plastics Designer Pro Series suction covers with model number 640-52XX S, printed on top of the outside edge of the plastic. The round covers were installed in select spas manufactured by Catalina Spas, Four Winds Spas, Dimension One Spas, and Sunrise Spas.

A full list of affected spas can be found on the Consumer Product Safety Commission website.

The covers were installed in spas sold by pool and spa dealers nationwide from June 2011 to June 2013 for between $3,500 and $16,000.

Consumers should immediately stop using spas with the recalled drained covers and should contact Waterway Plastics for inspection instructions and information on receiving a free replacement cover.

Waterway Plastics can be contacted at (866) 719-6044.
