As part of the pool build package, the PB convinced us to get a UV system to take care of parasites that are not getting killed by chlorine. He said UV systems will also allow less chlorine requirements. A year later, PB called to unplug the UV unit because of a recall due to arching and possible fire. The Trident UV corporation was bought out by Paramount Pools and they will not be responsible for any UV unit sold before they took over. The recall made me and my wife concerned about our safety especially future troubles even when the recall's approved kit is installed. So now we are considering taking the UV system completely out thus taking a loss (PB will not refund).
I talked to the distributor that handles the recall fix kit to owners. He told me the recall fix kit only provides an aluminum shield covering the area where the arching occurs and other wiring replacements, but arching may still occur. He also mentioned another alternative, but will cost me additional whole sale cost and this will give me a new Paramount UV system with a better ballast and UV bulb configuration that will no longer cause arching.
Now the question: Will it be worth replacing the UV system (or even just taking the government approved recall fix kit) and continue using the UV system as a secondary sanitation? Or do you think I should just have it completely taken out since Chlorine is good enough to do the sanitation work and not worry about parasites that chlorine cannot handle?
