Piping is a form of plastic resin (the blue or grey
plastic pipe) that was used extensively in the manufacture of water supply piping from 1978 until 1995.
It has become apparent over the time that polybutylene
pipes can leak or burst anytime without warning – destroying furniture, family heirlooms, and making structural damage.
In most cases, it takes years for polybutylene
systems to fail, but when it does, it can be very hazardous. While it may leak within the few years of installation, the majority of leaks occur between 10 to 15 years.
It is very important to understand that having these types of pipes in your house could increase insurance premiums. Also, insurance companies might limit coverage in homes with polybutylene
