ASME A112.19.8A-2008 pdf download.Addenda to ASME A112.19.8-2007 Suction Fittings for Use in Swimming Pools, Wading Pools, Spas, and Hot Tubs.
1 GENERAL 1.1 Scope 1.1.1 General Requirements. This Standard estab- lishes materials, testing, and marking requirements for suctionfittings thatare designedto betotallysubmerged for use in swimming pools, wading pools, spas, and hot tubs, as well as other aquatic facilities. 1.1.2 Definition. Suction fittings shall be defined as all components, including the sump and/or body, cover/grate, and hardware. 1.1.3 Compliance. Demonstration ofcompliance for this Standard is merely an indication that the product meets performance requirements and specifications con- tained in this Standard. 1.1.4 Revisions. The provisions of this Standard shall not be construed to prevent the use ofany alternate material or method of construction provided any such alternate meets the full intent of the standard. 1.1.5 Exclusions Skimmers shall be excluded from evalua- tion to this Standard. Vacuum connection covers shall be excluded from evaluation to this Standard. 1.1.6 Types of Suction Fittings General. A manufacturer or designer of any suction outlet cover/grate shall indicate under which Type the cover/grate is listed. Field Fabricated Outlets. All nonmanufac- tured suction outlets constructed in the field with indi- vidual components shall be considered as “Field Fabricated Outlets.” Venturi Outlets. All venturi activated indirect-suction outlets or venturi activated debris col- lection systems shall be considered as “Venturi Outlets.” Swim Jet Combination Fittings. All swim jet combination fittings that combine suction and dis- charge into one housing, creating a high velocity, high volume stream of water to swim, jog, or walk against, as well as massage, shall be considered “Swim Jet Combination Fittings.” 1 Submerged Suction Outlets. All other suc- tion outlets for use in swimming pools, wading pools, spas, and hot tubs, as well as all other aquatic facilities, shall be considered as “Submerged Suction Outlets.” 1.1.7 Single or Multiple Usage Cover/grates that pass the body entrap- ment portion of this Standard as well as meeting all other requirements in this Standard shall be perma- nently marked “For Single or Multiple Drain Use,” “For Single Drain Use,” or “For Multiple Drain Use Only” at the manufacturer’s option. Cover/grates that fail the body entrap- ment portion of this Standard or any other requirements of this Standard may not be certified under this Standard. 1.2 Related Standards Since the scope of this Standard is directly related to suction fittings, it is important to mention that the fit- tings themselves represent only one portion of the suc- tion entrapment scenario. Several other standards, including but not limited to, ANSI/NSPI-1, -2, -3, -4, -5, -6, and -8, ANSI/IAF-9, as well as ASME A112.19.17, and ASTM F 2387-04, as outlined in para. 1.4, should be consulted so as to provide coverage for the various other aspects of this potential hazard in swimming pools, wading pools, spas, and hot tubs. 1.3 Units of Measurement When values are stated in U.S. Customary units and in the International System of Units (SI), the values stated in U.S. Customary units shall be considered as the standard. 1.4 References The following standards are referenced in this docu- ment.
