Ponzo v. Watts Regulator Co. & Klug v. Watts Regulator CoC No. 1:14-cv-14080-ADB & No. 8:15-cv-00061-JFB-TDT District Court for the District of Nebraska
The lawsuits allege that Watts:
- Designed, manufactured, marketed and/or sold Water Heater and FloodSafe Connectors that were defective;
- Knew of the defective condition of these connectors; and
- Failed to provide warnings to prevent failure of the connectors.
The lawsuits allege that Watts’ actions led to the failure of the Water Heater and FloodSafe Connectors. The lawsuits ask for replacement connectors to be provided to those who purchased Water Heater and FloodSafe Connectors and for money to be paid to those who paid to repair property damage as a result of the failure of the connectors.
Watts denies all the claims and allegations in the lawsuits. Watts maintains that its Water Heater and FloodSafe Connectors are not defective in any respect and that any failures are the result of other factors (such as improper installation, misuse, or products being at the end of their lifespan).
