This Alert Affects:
Anyone who has experienced problems with their water supply lines.
What's Going On?
It has been alleged that several companies, including EZ-Flo International, used defective and/or low-grade materials in producing their water supply lines and coupling nuts, which are the parts used to connect the lines to the property's water supply. As a result, the lines are cracking, bursting or breaking before they should, causing leaks, flooding and property damage. Attorneys are filing lawsuits against these manufacturers and are interested in hearing from anyone who experienced problems with their water supply lines.
What Are Water Supply Lines?
Water supply lines are used to supply water to faucets, dishwashers, toilets, kitchen sinks, bathroom sinks, ice makers and other household fixtures. They are made from flexible tubing that is either covered with "braided" stainless steel or brass, or non-braided plastic.
Which Brands Are Attorneys Investigating?
Although lawsuits have only been filed against EZ-Flo, Fluidmaster and Watts Water Technologies, attorneys are also looking into the following brands: DuraPro (Interline), Homewerks Worldwide, BrassCraft, Price Pfister, Eastman, Everflow, Samar, Everlotus, Industries Corp., Lambro Industries, Robert Manufacturing, Savard Company, Shanghau Xinhuan Electromechanic Co., The Plumber's Choice, Wal-Rich Corporation, Hansgrohe, Floodsafe, Aqua-Flo (Mightyflex), Mueller, Electrolux/Frigidaire (Electrolux Major Appliances), Ace (Ace Hardware), and Kohler.
How Could a Class Action Help Me?
You may be able to recover compensation for the cost of replacing your broken supply line and repairing any resulting water damage.
