Lawsuit Alleges Serious Defects

The allegations against AS America Inc. center around the flush valve seal – a device that keeps the flushing mechanism operational and prevents water from leaking out of the tank – on the Champion 4 toilet was defectively designed and manufactured. As a result of the defects, a blister can develop on the surface of the flush valve seal after minimal use.

As the blister develops and creates a leak path, substantial leaks will develop and cause water to seep out of the tank. The potential defect may also alter the normal function of the Champion toilet, and may cause leaks so large the toilet can flush on its own.

Despite being aware of the defect, AS America has failed to fully address and fix the flush valve seal design. The defect should be covered by AS America’s 10-year express warranty offered on Champion toilets.

Do You Have a Case?

You may have a potential case against AS America if a potentially defective flush valve seal led to leaks in a Champion toilet you purchased within the past 10 years. Potential claims would include property owners who became aware of the problem after water usage as their rental properties and homes increased dramatically. In addition to costs of repairs and any property damage that may have resulted from the leaks, owners of the Champion 4 toilet may also be able to recover costs associated with increased water usage, as well as any other relevant damages.
