Ticking time bomb in your bathroom? Exploding toilets prompt recall

By Claudine Zap | The Lookout – 8 hrs ago

Your toilet could be a ticking time bomb. A problem with flushing mechanisms that causes toilets to explode has prompted a recall of 2.3 million toilets in the U.S. and 9,400 in Canada.
There have already been 304 complaints of exploding devices bursting, causing 14 "impact or laceration injuries," according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Flushmate, the company that installed the faulty flusher, has established a website for customers to enter the serial number of their toilets to find out if they need to replace their toilet. They can also receive a repair kit.

According to the company, "The affected Flushmate III Series 503 units can burst at or near the vessel weld seam releasing stored pressure.This pressure can lift the tank lid and shatter the tank, posing impact or laceration hazards to consumers and property damage."

Products with the bad flusher include toilets from Home Depot and Lowes, and those made from 1997-2008 by "American Standard, Crane, Kohler, Eljer, Mansfield, St. Thomas and Gerber."

A Las Vegas woman filed a lawsuit earlier this month against Flushmate, the Los Angeles Timesreports. The complaint claims that the repair kit failed to fix her faulty toilet and seeks class-action suit status.

Ladies, this is why us men leave the toilet seat up. It's important to release the pressure, so explosive gases don't build up in the toilet, causing it to explode and leaving you and your bathroom covered in feces and pieces of soggy toilet paper. So remember to thanks us the next time you walk into the washroom and it doesn't look like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. You're welcome.

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it
