 o
Drain cover recall

There was another drain cover recall this week. Here's a link to the information, in case you need it:

http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/prerel/prhtml11/11230.html

We have not yet checked with our builder (Shasta Pools) to see if our covers are effected by this recall. We think there's a fair chance they are since two of the manufacturers are from Arizona and that's where we are. Anyhow, here's what we're wondering: It says to contact the manufacturer for a replacement/retrofit. Would it then be up to us to arrange for (and pay for) the installation of the new covers? Like many homeowners, it's not something we're capable of handling ourselves. Since it's been determined to be a hazard and they need to get these covers out of the pools, should they help with the costs? Thoughts?

Update: our drain covers were not effected by this. In looking at the CPSC information, we can see our pool was constructed prior to the dates these covers were sold. Regardless, I hope this information helps y'all.
