Is your toilet going to flood your home?

If you own a Vortens toilet, the answer could be yes.

Because our clients have been affected by these faulty toilets, causing thousands of dollars in messy water damage, I encourage you to stop what you’re doing and go see if you own this brand of toilet anywhere in your home. If you have one of these toilets, please turn the water off in that bathroom and change it out ASAP.

The tank could crack, leaving you with a HUGE mess!  Check out the Click2Houston article and news story on the issue affecting the country.

According to the company, “Some tanks manufactured in 2011, mainly references #3464 and #3412, may have been affected by certain technical issues that allegedly caused fractures.”

You can also keep updated through the CP Houston web site.  They are a local contractor who began noticing the problem and blogged about it.  According to their web site, “The problem appears to begin with a crack in the porcelain tank that holds the water that finally breaks due to the water pressure inside the tank. The result is a catastrophic mess!”

Here are photos from the home of one of our clients who unfortunately had a faulty Vortens toilet.





As always, if you think you may have a claim, please call my office at 281-648-2828 first so we can help.  And if you own one of these toilets, turn the water off in each bathroom now and replace the toilet ASAP!
