The problem

Davey Water Products has recalled its EcoSalt™ salt water chlorinators. Some cell components on the chlorinators have reportedly cracked or burst, causing damage to the cell and the connecting pipework.

If the cell cracks or bursts, plastic fragments could be ejected and injure bystanders.

Details

EcoSalt™ salt water chlorinators were sold by various retailers, pool/spa suppliers and builders between 1 January 2006 and 29 September 2016.

They are used as a pool sanitation system in small to medium-sized domestic pools.

What to do

Owners of affected chlorinators will be contacted by the supplier that they purchased the product from. The letter will contain important safety information from Davey Water Products about getting the product fixed.

To fix the issue, a mechanical flow switch will be installed on each chlorinator unit. These installations will start in November and will be conducted by Davey or qualified service dealers, at no cost to owners.

If a mechanical flow switch has already been installed next to your EcoSalt chlorinator, you do not need to do anything.

If in any doubt or for more information, contact Davey Water Products on 0800 654 333 between 9am-5pm, Monday-Friday or email sales@dwp.co.nz.
