I posted this here once but someone deleted it and I cant figure out why.
I purchased a new home just going on 5 years ago.
We have had several problems with the plumbing fixures BREAKING, first time was with in 2 or 3 months of living here - and it caused extensive flooding at the secondary bathroom end of the home - and in one of my kids bedrooms, and flooded the 'belly' of the house.
They 'fixed' it by replacing what broke in teh wall, and simply vacumed up the water and let the water out from under the house.
THey never did put an access panel in.
The same pipe broke again just a few months back causing a slow leak and very bad damage to the floor under the tub and between the bedroom wall and living room wall (mold growth, damage and rot to the dry wall).
Now this week a pipe broke in the wall of the master bath and is causing damage up the wall, with mold etc.
Also the fixture to the icemaker (water line) broke the week we moved in and caused water damage, mold staining coming up under the linolium flooring.
Is there any kind of LAWS ? We went back to the manufacture who blantantly told us we were 'out of warranty' - and our insurance co won't touch it stating "it is maintenance issues".
I am VERY concerned about the level and smell of mold/mildew in my sons room from this!
