Flushing systems, boiler controllers recalled
October 31, 2018 | By Jillian Morgan
Flushmate and Hydrolevel have issued product notifications for Canada.
Flushmate has recalled the Flushmate II 501-B pressure-assisted flushing systems due to impact and laceration hazards. About 17,300 were sold in Canada.
The system can burst at or near the vessel weld seam releasing stored pressure, which can lift the tank lid and shatter the tank.
Users are recommended to stop using the system, turn off the water supply to the unit, and flush the toilet to release the internal pressure. A free replacement unit and installation can be requested from Flushmate.
Hydrolevel recalled its HydroStat Model 3000 boiler controllers for the Slant/Fin boilers due to a fire hazard. About 370 of the controllers were sold in Canada.
A malfunction in the recalled controller can cause the boiler to overheat, posing a fire hazard. Users of the Slant/Fin model VSPH boilers are encouraged to contact a contractor to schedule a free repair. www.healthycanadians.gc.ca/recall-alert-rappel-avis/hc-sc/2018/67570r-eng.php www.healthycanadians.gc.ca/recall-alert-rappel-avis/hc-sc/2018/67928r-eng.php
