Defective EZ-Flo Toilet Connectors and Water Supply Lines Lawsuit Investigation

PRACTICE AREAS: Defective Products
PRODUCT: EZ-Flo or Eastman stainless steel toilet connector and/or washing machine water supply line
CASE STATUS: Under Investigation

Attention: Anyone who purchased an EZ-Flo stainless steel toilet connector or washing machine water supply line that failed.

Berger Montague is conducting an investigation and asking to hear from anyone who purchased an EZ-Flo or Eastman stainless steel toilet connector or washing machine water supply line. These products are believed to be defective and leak water, flooding consumers’ homes. We are interested in speaking with consumers to help determine whether a class action lawsuit can be filed.

About the case

Berger Montague is investigating possible claims against EZ-Flo International, Inc. and Eastman on behalf of consumers who purchased one or both of these products:

  • A stainless steel braided toilet connector with a plastic coupling nut
  • A washing machine water supply line

There is a defect in both of these products that causes them to fail and leak water throughout homeowners’ bathrooms or laundry rooms.

If you purchased a faulty EZ-Flo or Eastman toilet connector and/or water supply line and are interested in discussing a possible case, please contact Glen Abramson at gabramson@bm.net or (215) 875-4683.

Why are you investigating EZ-Flo and Eastman?

EZ-Flo manufactures water supply lines (under the EZ-Flo and Eastman brands) that connect household fixtures such as faucets, toilets, washing machines, and dishwashers to a building’s water supply. EZ-Flo and Eastman braided water supply lines have two distinct defects that cause them to fail and burst, flooding the home of the unsuspecting owner.

Toilet connector problems

EZ-Flo and Eastman toilet connectors, which connect the plumbing supply to a toilet, have a plastic coupling nut on the end that connects to the base of the toilet. The plastic coupling nut contains a design defect that causes excessive stress to build at the base of the coupling nut, eventually causing the nut to crack and fail. This allows flowing water to leak out into the bathroom.

Washing machine supply line problems

EZ-Flo and Eastman washing machine supply lines, which connect the plumbing supply to a washing machine, have a different defect from the toilet connectors. The metallic insert used to secure the coupling nut to the rubber hose cuts the rubber portion of the hose when exposed to water pressure. When the rubber hose is cut by the insert, the hose leaks and bursts, causing flooding and property damage. This happens despite the fact that EZ-Flo and Eastman advertise that the washing machine lines are “guaranteed not to burst.”
