An insurance company is suing two businesses, seeking to recover monies paid to an insured after his water heater connector discharged water in his Groves residence.

Seeking no more than $100,000 in damages, Foremost Lloyds of Texas, as subrogee of Paul Perkinz, filed suit against Lowe’s Home Centers and Watts Regulator Co. on July 2 in Jefferson County District Court.

According to the lawsuit, on Aug. 20, 2013, Perkinz’s property was damaged when a water heater connector, manufactured by Watts and sold by Lowe’s, discharged water.

The suit faults Lowe’s and Watts with negligence, alleging specifically that Lowe’s owed a duty to Perkinz to sell a water heater connector free of defects.

Foremost Lloyds is seeking to recover $10,964.29 in actual damages, plus interest and court costs.

The company is represented by Houston attorney James Bradley.

Judge Milton Shuffield, 136th District Court, has been assigned to the case.

Case No. D-197293
