Attorneys working with ClassAction.org are investigating whether lawsuits can be filed against some of the country’s leading toilet fill valve manufacturers, including Fluidmaster. They have reason to believe that some companies’ fill valves may be defective and could be putting property owners at risk for flooding, tank overflows and serious property damage.
It is believed that some companies are replacing traditional ball cock-style valves with newer fill valves that are said to be better performing and resistant to corrosion. These newer fill valves, however, are believed to be made of a plastic that can corrode and deteriorate when exposed to chlorine – which is commonly added to drinking water to prevent disease-causing pathogens.
It is suspected that over time, with continuous exposure, the toilet fill valves can degrade, causing the product to crack and release a massive discharge of water into and out of the toilet tank. Some consumers reported that their tanks overflowed and caused serious damage to both their properties and adjoining structures.
If class action lawsuits can be filed and are successful, property owners may be able to collect compensation for repairs to their toilet tanks and compensation for property damage. Before a lawsuit can even be considered, however, the attorneys we work with need to hear from people who experienced problems with their toilet fill valves to learn more about the problem. Any information you provide to us can help these attorneys determine which, if any, companies can be sued and what claims can be brought against them.
If you’ve experienced spraying water, cracking, leaking, tank overflows or other problems with a toilet fill valve made by Fluidmaster or any other manufacturer, fill out the form on this page and tell us what happened. After you get in touch, one of the attorneys we work with may call or e-mail you. He or she may ask you a few questions about the problems you’ve been having and go over any legal options you may have – including possibly starting a class action lawsuit.
There’s no catch – it costs nothing to talk to an attorney and you’re not obligated to take legal action if you don’t feel comfortable doing so. We work with some of the country’s leading class action lawyers and we’re trying to connect people who’ve suffered property damage as a result of potentially defective products get help.

A reckless new bill represents an unprecedented threat to consumer rights, essentially gutting class action and mass tort litigation. Congress has tried to ram it through without us noticing. Read more about the implications of this bill, and contact your members of Congress to protect your rights.
