VIQUA Solenoid Valve Kits have been recalled because electrical current can leak from the solenoid valve, posing an electrical shock hazard. No incidents have yet been reported, according to U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission recall 20-004.
This recall involves solenoid valves included in VIQUA solenoid valve accessory kits for residential and commercial UV water treatment systems. About about 170 units were sold in Canada, with an additional 70 sold in the U.S. They were sold between May 2018 through October 2019.
The recalled units can be identified by the green coil component attached to the solenoid valve with ASCO parts numbers 400127-xxx and date codes between 1A3 through 5A2 (13th week through the 52nd week of 2018) or 0B1 through 0B8 (1st week through the 8th week of 2019). The company’s website has a full list of recalled part numbers.
Facility managers with the recalled solenoid valve kits installed in their facilities are directed to stop using them, disconnect power to the UV water treatment system, and contact VIQUA to receive free installation of a replacement coil.
VIQUA can be reached at 800-265-7246 or at its website.
