Keeps automatic cleaners from getting stuck on main drain cover. (For original Hayward 8" SP Series Anti-Vortex drain covers only)
I have the NEWER style drain that this doesnt fit. Do you sell a product that fits the new 8" Hayward Main Drains?
Hi, Jay. This bumper is only compatible with main drain manufactured prior to 2008. There is not a bumper that will fit the new style main drains.
Would you please provide the part number for the drain cover on which this bumper fits?
Hi, Lam, This bumper fits the old style "Hayward Antivortex Cover (SPX1048E)" which has been discontinued and replaced with the Hayward New Style Cover (WGX1048E). However, this bumper will not compatible with the new style cover.
This part doesn't appear to clip onto my main drains. The clip teeth are too wide for the gaps between the spokes on my drain covers. This pool was installed in 2006. Must I purchase and install particular drain covers that his part will fit, or are there different bumper parts for other drain covers?
Hi, Lam. This bumper is designed only for the Hayward Anti-Vortex SP1084 Series main drain. The SP1084 series main drain is no longer available so it can not be purchased.
would this work with my Hayward Navigator Pro which is always getting stuck on the drains
George, Yes this can be used with your cleaner. The main drain bumper will fit on an 8" round main drain.
Does this fit on the navigator or on the pool drain?
My pool has two main drains and the Hayward Navigator keeps getting hung up on one or the other. Is this the fix for that and if so, how does it attach to the drain?
The bumper clips right onto the Hayward Anti-Vortex main drain cover. This will prevent the Hayward Navigator from getting stuck on the drain.
The item describes it as a main drain bumper. Which is it and how and where does it go? Apparently I have had this item for years, but not sure why it was bought.
The SP1048AVH is a Main Drain Bumper. It clips onto your main drain and prevents the automatic cleaner from getting trapped on the cover.
(5 out of 5 stars) Great Tool - Does the Job

Pros: Does exactly what it should. Lasts a long time.
Cons: Clips are susceptible to sun damage over the long haul
Ignore the photo - the inner part is facing the wrong way. The unit clips on the drain cover and the softer rubber bit then sticks up and will keep the Hayward vac from getting hi-centered most of the time. I use a 2-foot length of 1-1/2" PVC pipe stuck in the rubber bit to keep the vac moving. We ordered it in 2011 and just now are ordering a replacement - sunlight destroyed the clips. 5-year life - not bad. Too bad the price has almost doubled from 2011. But, it does the job.
(2 out of 5 stars) Replaces original equipment

Cons: Product does not last long.
This is a replacement part for original equipment that keeps breaking with time. No choice. Original product becomes brittle in pool and breaks. I wish there was another alternative to this product. But I haven't found one yet.
