Flushmate III Flushing System Recalled Due to Possible Explosion

The U.S. has ordered Flushmate, a Michigan based company, to recall their Flushmate III Pressure-Assisted Flushing System after hundreds complaints of exploding toilets were reported. The Flushmate III is a tank system that is designed to conserve water with every flush.  It is sold separately, but installed on toilets made by American Standard, Crane, Kohler, Eljer, Mansfield, St. Thomas and Gerber and available at Home Depot and Lowe’s stores nationwide.

Over two million of these faulty flushing systems are being recalled and were manufactured between 1997 to 2008. Anyone who owns a toilet with the recalled system should shut off the water connection to the toilet and contact Flushmate at (800) 303-5123 to request a free repair kit.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission issued the warning after receiving 304 reports of toilets bursting and 14 reports of laceration injuries. Earlier this month, a Las Vegas woman sued Flushmate in federal court and accused the company of a faulty device, causing her toilet to malfunction and leak.

If you have purchased a product and suspect that the product poses health or safety hazards, contact Khorrami, LLP for a confidential consultation.
