Attention any consumer who purchased a LiveWell which was shipped by us, since April 1st, 2011.

We have been made aware of a potential hazard related to the recent batch of LiveWell product due to a new type of battery and charger used. We have received reports of charger problems causing melting of the charger and possibly associated wires.

You must discontinue the use of the provided charger.

The suspect 6 volt charger is shown here:

SLA Battery Charger Model:CP0615


LiveWell Switch

We have become aware of a problem with the on-off pump switch. These were supplied with a plastic switch shaft that is prone to failure when impacted. This was not an approved change and our vendor is supplying replacement switches of the original quality.

We will be replacing all chargers from this shipment. It appears to be a 3-4 week process for charger production, modification specific to the LiveWell plugs, testing, delivery and shipment by us to dealers. We will also replace all switches at that time.

Contact your dealer to file a warranty claim for these items.

Once again...

if the above described charger was provided.
