    ITT Water Technology Inc. Expands Recall of Faulty Pumps for Fire
    Suppression Systems

    WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in
    cooperation with the firm named below, today announced a voluntary
    recall of the following consumer product.

    Name of Product: Goulds Pumps, Bell & Gossett and Red Jacket Water
    Products Brand Pumps for Fire Suppression Systems

    Units: About 3,000 additional units (18,300 units recalled in August
    2006)

    Manufacturer: ITT Water Technology Inc., of Auburn, N.Y.

    Hazard: A mechanical part on these pumps was not fully secured, which
    can lead to the pump failing during use. If pumps sold with fire
    suppression systems fail, the risk of fire damage increases. The pump
    itself does not pose a fire hazard. These pumps were previously
    recalled
    for the same hazard in August 2006. The recall has now been expanded to
    include additional date codes and the dates sold have been expanded.

    Incidents/Injuries: ITT Water Technology Inc. has received one report
    of
    a pump failing to start during a system test. No injuries have been
    reported.

    Description: The recalled pumps are general in purpose, but are
    sometimes used in fire suppression systems. The pumps were sold under
    the Goulds Pumps, Bell & Gossett and Red Jacket Water Products brands.
    The pumps can be identified by having Model NPE, NPO, MCC, MCS, SM or
    Series 3530 on their nameplate. Recalled pumps were manufactured
    between
    December 2005 and September 7, 2006. They have date code M05, A06, B06,
    C06, D06, E06, F06, G06, H06 or J06. The date code is the first three
    digits of the serial number on the pump nameplate.

    Sold at: Pump distributors nationwide from December 2005 through
    September 2006 for about $800.

    Manufactured in: United States

    Remedy: Installers of fire suppression systems will be contacted by ITT
    Water Technology Inc. to schedule an inspection and replacement. Please
    contact ITT Water Technology Inc. if you have not been contacted yet.

    Consumer Contact: For more information, call ITT Water Technology Inc.
    at (800) 984-9199 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday,
    or
    visit one of the company's Web sites at www.goulds.com,
    www.bellgossett.com or www.redjacketwaterproducts.com

    This is what happens when two Giants buy up practically every pump company in the United States. ITT and Pentair own almost every pump Co. out there. Then they mix and match to market the products as they see fit. They also build in obsolescence to certain brands and models to be sold under different brand names.

    Just about all the pumps you see in the pictures are imports, not even made by the Brand Names they were sold under.
