Pool Sanitation Systems Recalled-Fire Hazard
About the Pool Sanitation System Recall
According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the Pool Sanitation System is used to sanitize the pool’s water which runs through the system by using ultraviolet lamps within the unit. Electrical arcing can cause the units to catch fire, posing a fire hazard. Electrical arcing happens when electrical currents travel across the Sanitation System resulting in high temperatures which in return cause the fire hazard.
CPSC recommends that consumers immediately unplug the system from the outlet; however if the system is hard-wired, then the power source should be disconnected or turned off at the circuit breaker. The consumer should contact Paramount for a free replacement system along with a free installation.
