Anyone who bought or owns an under-sink water filter.
What Are Under-Sink Water Filters?
Under-sink water filters are systems fitted under your sink or counter that use changeable cartridges to filter water before it gets to the drinking tap. They're produced by multiple manufacturers and come in a range of designs.
What's the Problem?
Attorneys have received information that leads them to believe the casings of some under-sink water filters are defective and can crack or lose their watertight seals when placed under pressure. This can result in flooding and property damage.
Which Brands Are Affected?
Attorneys are still trying to determine which brands are prone to these problems and need to hear from those who own the products to help with their investigations. The following, however, is a list of companies that make under-sink and under-counter water filters: General Electric, General Appliance, Aquasana, Wood Brothers, Whirlpool, Emerson Electric, Cuno, Culligan International, Clearbrook and Omnipure/Pentair Filter Company.
