Exploding Toilets Recalled
This isn't a dirty joke, but sounds like the beginning of one though, doesn't it? If you have a toilet in your home that was manufactured between 1997 and 2008, this is worth looking in to. There have been 304 reports of toilets bursting due to a faulty flushing system. This has caused lacerations.
The product in question is the: Flushmate III Pressure-Assisted Flushing System which was sold at Home Depot & Lowe's and also sold to these toilet manufactures: American Standard, Crane, Kohler, Eljer, Mansfield, St. Thomas and Gerber.
IF you own one of these & it was made between '97 & '08...
1.) Shut off the water connection
