Sylmar, CA—About 16,000 pool safety vacuum release systems were recalled by Vacless Systems Inc. and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). The CPSC announced the recall on January 19, 2011.

The recall was initiated after discovering that improper plastic material found inside the vacuum release systems has been attributed to failures in the product, which can create entrapment hazards to swimmers.

The CPSC reported, “The recalled product is a black plastic device that screws into the drain hole of a swimming pool or spa circulation pump. As part of the circulation systems, the device is designed to release the vacuum in a drain line whenever a submerged drain cover of a swimming pool or spa is completely covered. The recalled product has model number SVRS10ADJ and only involves the following serial numbers found on the weather-proof label attached to the top of every unit.”
