by Long Island Attorney Paul A. Lauto, Esq.
A Long Island man, Thomas Arnold, detected a malfunction in his swimming pool pump, recently installed at his East Yaphank home by Swim King Pools. Arnold called Swim King pools and advised them of the defect and that the pump's sandy filter media was being expelled into the pool.
A representative reportedly advised him to tighten one of the pump's clamps to remedy the problem. Upon doing so and after reactivating the pump, the pump's lid allegedly blasted off striking Arnold in the face. Arnold sued, among others, Swim King Pools claiming negligent installation of the pump and negligence in failing to properly instruct him on how to fix the pump.
