I was wondering if you could give me any info. on the class action suit where Shell was involved as I have a manufactered home with that awful plumbing that keeps going bad, I have had four bad leaks in two years and understand that something can be done about this, as Coast to Coast was the only place I could get repacement parts here in the Reno area and now they have gone out of business. Thank you for any help you can refer me to Debra Marshall

The most popular settlement (as you mentioned) was formed by Shell Oil and is administrated by the Consumer Plumbing Recovery Center in Plano, TX.
