There most likely were warnings on the tank as well as from the distributor
and the doctor. If the warnings are not folowed, whatever happens is the
user's fault.. I am sure there will be a lawsuit and I'll bet the warning or
lack of comes into play. I can't believe people in the home were not aware of
the potential problems.
Here is one for you: suppose the person used oil in an effort to make the
valve easier to turn? Tanks have this warning as well, but some think it is a
silly warning and will not believe what can happen. Big things will happen.
