What to do next: Consumers in possession of one of these EasyClear products should carefully review the following instructions on this page. You will be asked to verify by entering the model number & serial number of your product. Please refer to the following images to locate your model & serial number. If your product is affected, you will then be able to register for a replacement product.
Turn off your EasyClear before handling it. As detailed in the instructions when handling the EasyClear ensure you wear eye protection and suitable gloves.
If your EasyClear is located in your pond, do not use the electrical cable to lift the unit as this may cause damage. If a lifting cord was fitted to the hook feature on the base, use this to remove it out of the pond as detailed in the instructions.
In the event that a lifting cord was not fitted, remove the EasyClear by holding the main body only, do not use the shroud/turret. Place it on its side to drain off any excess water.
Press the grey buttons at the front of the EasyClear. This allows the lid to come away.
