Thousands of pool sanitation systems are being recalled because they can start a fire.
Electrical arching can cause the “trident series 2 ultraviolet sanitation systems” to melt or catch fire.
They were sold by pool companies nationwide from February 2009 through september 2013 for about $600.
People who own one should unplug the unit from the outlet.
If it’s hard-wired, the power source should be disconnected or turned off at the circuit breaker. Consumers also should contact Trident for a free repair kit.
