What are the defects?

Water or moisture may enter the ignition module causing it to fail.

This may result in overheating and sparking in the relays and lead to the plastic casing of the ignition module catching fire and/or create a 'false' call for heating, allowing the heater to operate when in the 'OFF' position, bridging the safety circuit and allowing the heater to operate with no water flow.

What are the hazards?

If the ignition module fails and causes a fire, this may result in a serious injury or death to users or bystanders.


What should consumers do?

Consumers should immediately stop using the heater and disconnect the unit from the power supply. Contact Fluidra Group Australia Pty Ltd to arrange for a qualified technician to repair the heater on site.

If consumers are using a Viron Connect Automation System in conjunction with the heater, it will require a temporary cable to be connected to the Viron Connect for the pool pump to operate. Contact Fluidra on the below details to arrange for this cable to be sent to you.
