A component used on models of its new motorised water tower blamed, as the manufacturer issues a recall of products.

Dapol is issuing a product recall on models of its 4mm:1ft / OO gauge water tower. The manufacturer has found that a sub-standard component used during production of motorised models has been discovered to fail when using a 15VAC power supply. 

The manufacturer explained "Dapol undertakes stringent testing on all of its products and only grants permission to go into production when we are confident that a product meets the very highest quality and safety standards. Subsequent to these approvals, we have discovered that a sub-standard component has been used during production of our operating water tower."

If affected, customers are advised to arrange return of models to their place of purchase for refund.
