Trident Series 2 Ultraviolet Sanitation Systems for pools has been recalled by Trident Ultraviolet Corp., of Marina del Rey, Calif. While this company is out of business it is handling this recall. Electrical arcing can cause the units to catch fire, posing a fire hazard. This recall involves all Trident Series 2 ultraviolet sanitation systems for pools. The sanitation systems are a gray tube that stands 32 inches high by 11 inches in diameter. They are plumbed into the pool’s water circulation pipes and plugged in or hard-wired into an electrical system. The pool’s water runs through the unit and is sanitized by ultraviolet lamps.
This is a secondary sanitation system used in conjunction with chemical sanitizers such as chlorine or bromine. “Trident Ultraviolet Corporation,” “Series 2” and “UV Ultraviolet Sanitation System” are printed on a black label on the front of the units. “Trident Series 2 Ultraviolet Water Treatment System” and a series of letters for the date code are printed on a silver sticker on the units. Go to www.uvrecall.org to determine if the date code is included in the recall. There have been 38 reports of the sanitation systems melting and or catching fire, one burn injury to a consumer’s hand and about $23,000 in property damage reported.
The systems were sold at pool companies nationwide from February 2009 through September 2013 for about $600. Consumers should immediately unplug the units from the outlet, or if hard-wired, the power source should be disconnected or turned off at the circuit breaker.
