    plastic fittings

    I won't even consider there plastic fittings. I wouldn't want to own the warrenty becauseZurn doesn't want to back what they wrote.

    Zurn

    Interesting to hear there's a Zurn "recall" but it's not mentioned in this Lawyer's class action advertisement. According to Trevor Johnson the VP & General manager at Zurn there is not a current recall. Some areas of the country are seeing increasingly aggressive water conditions that are attacking the brass fittings; essentially they are acting like an anode rod & dissolving the zinc out of the brass. Corrosive or aggressive water is difficult to prove as it can be a temporary or re-occuring condition & sometime has multiple causes. This situation is not going to be confined only to Zurn fittings, many of the manufacturers use a similar mix of alloy in their brass fittings. The polymer (or plastic) fittings are being recommended to mitigate the corrosive affects of agressive water. I don't know of any manufacturer who will cover all & any failure regardless of what's run through their product. If you install any brass fittings in potable water systems you probably should contact your supplier about this issue. As far as this lawsuit you can file against anyone for anything if you want. I don't know if I'd find a manufacturer guilty based on the info. found on a lawyer's website.
