Another Flushmate Recall

Back in June of 2012, we blogged about a recall from Flushmate that involved exploding toilet tanks. That recall involved 2.2 million pressure assisted flushing systems where the pressurized tank could fail and cause the porcelain toilet tank to break apart in an explosion-like manner. Since that recall was made, Flushmate has continued to have problems with its products. As a result Flushmate has issued another recall for approximately 351,000 Flushmate III pressure assisted flushing system tanks. The problem is still the same. That is, the tanks fail at the weld seam and release water under whatever supply pressure is available. The pressure is usually enough to break a porcelain toilet tank and cause substantial water damage to property. The destruction of the porcelain tank can also cause serious personal injury.
