In March 2018, the team from Hot Tub Covers Canada shared news of the MAAX Spas recall, related to self-contained portable spas with the Delta UV Generator. The recall was voluntary and done in conjunction with Health Canada, the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (US CPSC) and MAAX Spas Industries Corp. Approximately 630 units of the recalled product were sold in Canada.
As a retailer of saltwater chlorination products, we wanted to ensure that owners of the MAAX Spas products in question were aware of the concern and the steps to remedy the chlorinator. As such, we provide the following overview as a reference.
