Practice Area: Defective Products

Attention: Anyone who has experienced leaking or other problems with their FlowGuard Gold CPVC plumbing system.

Berger Montague is interested in hearing from home and property owners who have experienced problems with their FlowGuard Gold CPVC pipes and fittings. We filed a class action lawsuit on behalf of our clients in federal court in Ohio, and we are interested in interviewing anyone who has experience with these products, to gather more information about FlowGuard Gold plumbing system problems and alleged defects.

About the Lawsuit

The lawsuit alleges that FlowGuard Gold chlorinated polyvinyl chloride (CPVC) pipes and fittings are defective and fail earlier than expected. A copy of the amended complaint is available here.

What’s wrong with the FlowGuard Gold CPVC Pipe and Fittings?

The lawsuit alleges that FlowGuard Gold CPVC pipes and fittings suffer from design and manufacturing defects that can lead to cracking, shattering, leaks, and overall failure of the products, resulting in significant damage to the structures in which the FlowGuard Gold is installed.

Some customers are voicing their concerns about FlowGuard Gold online. Their comments include:

My FlowGuard Gold ½ inch pipe broke at the cut off valve last week. It was behind a laundry tub and very hard to get to. Should have had nothing to cause it to fail. Very concerned about the rest of the house as it was used everywhere.

Our FlowGuard pipe sprung a tiny leak within a wall behind the shower head. Soaked the wall and had to break in and get plumber to replace section of defective pipe. Home built in 1997 in Scottsdale, AZ. I too am concerned about how much pipe we have within the walls and what a disaster it would be to have similar leaks.

The line that leads to the refrigerator had cracked for the second time. The first time a patch was put into the line and now it is leaking a foot above that section. The pipe is FlowGuard Gold and you can feel the crack in the pipe.
