Pykles would like to inform our customers and community of a Safety Recall Notice from FLUSHMATE.
In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, FLUSHMATE is expanding its voluntary recall of FLUSHMATE III Series 503 to include units manufactured from October 14, 1997 to June 30, 2009.
The affected FLUSHMATE III Series 503 units can burst at or near the vessel weld seam releasing stored pressure. This pressure can lift your toilet tank’s lid and even shatter the tank, posing impact or laceration hazards to you and your home.
Even if you have installed repair kits on some of your FLUSHMATE III units, please verify the remaining serial numbers to ensure that a repair kit is installed on all affected FLUSHMATE III units. For your safety, FLUSHMATE has asked to have consumers check their serial numbers as soon as possible, even if you are reading this notice a second time.
1) Write down the FLUSHMATE III complete serial number for all the units in your possession. (See Picture above)
2) Immediately contact FLUSHMATE to verify whether your unit is included within the recall. Visit http://recall.flushmate.com or call the FLUSHMATE Recall Hotline toll-free at (800) 303-5123 between 8AM and 10PM ET, Monday through Friday, and between 8AM and 6:30PM ET on Saturday.
3) If your unit is included within the recall, you will be instructed to turn off the water supply to your toilet. A Repair Kit will be sent to you at no charge.
If you have any questions, please visit http://recall.flushmate.com or call Pykles Remodeling at (619) 463-1600 for any assistance in locating your serial number and securing and repairing your toilet.
