Additional information:
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports this recall involves all Paramount Trident Series 2 (UV II) Ultraviolet Sanitation Systems.

The recalled Sanitation Systems consist of a gray tube that stands approximately 32 inches high by 11 inches in diameter. Each unit is 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. The phrases, “Trident UV II” or “Series 2 Trident Ultraviolet Corporation UV Sanitation System” are printed on a black label on the front of the units.

In addition, a silver sticker on the units has the following wording “Paramount Series 2 Ultraviolet Pool Sanitizer System”, “Trident Series 2 Ultraviolet Water Treatment System” or “Trident Ultra UV Series 2 Water Treatment System” and a date code of “9/9/2013” or later. Some date codes consist of a series of letters. Consumers with letters in the date code need to go to to determine if their unit is included in the recall.

According to the CPSC, electrical arcing can cause the units to catch fire, posing a fire hazard.

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. Contact Paramount for a free replacement unit and free installation.
