Inflatable Bubble Spa
Product description
Inflatable bubble spa available in different formats, depending on the type number. However, based on the relevant parts of the technical file, the electrical unit is the same for all types and is certified accordingly. E.g. type B 141: Delivered in a cardboard box with pictures and text. The main parts enclosed in the box are the electrical unit (with pump, heater, etc.), the control panel, the inflatable bath (which has a panel with markings) and some small accessories. It cannot be excluded that other types of spa may also be involved with the same or similar heating elements.
Risk
The product poses a risk of electric shock and drowning because the bathing water in the inflatable spa can come directly into contact with live parts of the heating element that is connected to the mains power supply. The product does not comply with the requirements of the Low Voltage Directive. Two accidents reported.
