Recall Alert: Toilet flushing system could explode your commode
23 October, 2018, 23:18 | Author: Regina Silva
The CPSC says if you have a Flushmate II 501-B system, stop using it. Turn off the water supply to the units and flush the toilets to release internal pressure.
The body adds this can "lift the tank lid and shatter the tank", leading to possible "impact and laceration hazards to consumers and property damage".
More than a million toilet flushing systems have been recalled in the U.S. after a spate of cistern explosions caused injuries.
The affected model, which was created to use compressed air to force water into the toilet bowl (as opposed to the traditional gravity-assisted models), has not been produced by Flushmate since December 2013, but was available for purchase through Home Depot or Lowes as late as 2015.
Units included in this recall were sold individually and installed in toilets manufactured by American Standard, Corona, Crane, Kohler and Mansfield. The exploding systems have also caused about $710,000 in property damage.
The units being recalled are an oval, black, two piece object made of injection molded plastic.
This recall is for Flushmate II 501-B pressure-assisted flushing systems installed inside toilet tanks that were manufactured from September 3, 1996 through December 7, 2013.
