UNITED STATES – According to an online news article published by nbc25news.com, and as reported by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), VIQUA has issued a recall of Solenoid Valve Kits for UV Water Treatment Systems that pose an electrical shock hazard to users.*
VIQUA, the manufacturer of water treatment systems, has issued a recall of its Solenoid Valve Kits (Recall No. 20-004) that may be defective, resulting in the potential for an electric current to leak from the valve and pose an electrical shock hazard to the user.

The ASCO part number at issue is 400127 and is followed by a date code ranging from 1A3 to 5A2 (13th week through the 52nd week of 2018) and 0B1 to 0B8 (1st week through 8th week of 2019).
Consumers with the affected water treatment systems are instructed to stop using the recalled valve kits, disconnect the power to the UV water treatment system, and visit the VIQUA website for assistance with inspecting the green coil component attached to the solenoid valve. If consumers are in possession of the recalled solenoid valve kits, they are instructed to contact VIQUA to receive a free installation of a replacement coil.
The affected VIQUA water treatment systems and valve kits were sold by VIQUA distributors and plumbing contractors throughout the United States and Canada between May 2018 and October 2019. Each valve kit costs approximately $460 to $500. No injuries or deaths related to the recalled solenoid valve kits have been reported.
