Claim a Refund or Replacement for Flushmate Recalls Today
In 2013, property damage and injury complaints due to exploding toilet tanks led to a recall of millions of flushing systems. The Flushmate recall involves about 1.5 million Flushmate II 501-B pressure-assisted flushing systems being recalled in the US. An additional 17,300 units of the Flushmate flushing system had been sold in Canada.
If you are looking into getting a replacement or a refund for a Flushmate recall, the process can be somehow tedious and confusing. This is where DoNotPay can assist.
Check out these other brand recalls that we’ve handled in the past:
- Philips CPAP
- California recalls
- Neutrogena sunscreen
- Sunscreen recalls
- Tyson chicken
The brand is a unit of Illinois bathroom equipment maker Sloan Valve Company. Flushmate received reports of the toilet system bursting, which resulted in injuries and property damage as well.
- Note that the pressure-assisted flushing system fits inside your toilet's tank and is often sold separately.
- The system is rare compared to the gravity flush option that operates by gravity, just like its name suggests.
On the contrary, pressure-assisted toilet flushing systems use compressed air to flush. The result is a loud whooshing noise and the water released is minimal. The product may be great, but Flushmate recalls pose challenges. DoNotPay comes in handy when addressing Flushmate recalls
Insight Into Flushmate Recalls
The table below explores everything you need to know about the Flushmate recall.
|The Product||Flushmate II 501-B: Rounded oval, black, two-piece vessels made of injection-molded plastic with a 15-character long serial number/date code located on the label on top.|
|The Risks||It was noted that Flushmate II 501-B could release stored pressure after bursting at or near the unit's weld seam.
Eventually, that could lift the tank lid, and shatter the tank, and consumers could suffer property damage as well as impact and laceration hazards.
|Incidents / Injuries||Over 1,000 reports of the flushing units bursting, resulting in injuries and property damage were received.|
|Remedy||Consumers were advised to stop using the recalled Flushmate II 501-B systems, turn off the water supply to their toilets, and flush their toilets to release any internal pressure.
Also, consumers could call Flushmate to request a free Flushmate replacement unit and installation by a technician.
