Flushmate, of New Hudson, Mich., a division of Sloan Valve Co., is recalling about 2.3 million Flushmate III Pressure-Assist Flushing Systems because they can burst, releasing stored pressure that can lift the tank lid and shatter the tank.
The recall is for Series 503 Flushmate III Pressure Assist flushing systems installed inside toilet tanks. The manufacture date code/serial number is on the label on the top of the system. The first six numerals of the serial number are the date code. The range for this recall is from 101497 (October 14, 1997) through 022908 (February 29, 2008).
They were sold at Home Depot and Lowe's stores, distributors and plumbing contractors for about $108. They also were used by toilet manufacturers, including American Standard, Crane, Eljer, Gerber, Kohler, Mansfield and St. Thomas.
