Anybody having a Waterlogic water dispenser with a UV system or WL 3000 Cold only model and have not received Technical Bulletins TB0035 and TB0040 must contact the suppliers immediately. Anybody with a unit identified in the Technical bulletins from the manufacturer must isolate the unit and follow the recommendations described in the Technical Bulletins before putting the units back into service says Britain’s HSE.
Earlier this year a Waterlogic UV water dispenser caught fire in the temporary refuge of an offshore oil and gas platform.
Two Technical Bulletins had been issued by the UK supplier, PHS Waterlogic, in 2004 and 2005 but were not received by the duty holder of the offshore platform.
Failure to carry out the modifications recommended in the technical bulletins contributed to an electrical fault which resulted in the device catching fire.
The supplier contact details are:
37 Stapledon Road
