Polybutylene piping, otherwise known as “Poly B”, is becoming an issue for homeowners in the lower mainland, and really, across North America. It was installed in homes throughout the late 1970s to mid-90s, and is now causing some headaches for home owners, as unexpected issues are surfacing.

If your home has Poly B pipes, do you know what the danger is? The danger is simply that your pipes are most likely at some point going to fail, and you could be facing an emergency plumbing situation. It’s best to replace your Poly B pipes over simply repairing them.

What are the repercussions of keeping Poly B in your home?

  • Leaks
  • Hairline cracks
  • Poor installment by plumbers: loose fittings
  • Water quality: irregular water pressures & chemical sensitivities (chlorine and mineral levels)
  • Mold issues
  • In-home flooding
  • Age of the pipe and fittings: degeneration of pipe fittings.

So do not let Poly B failures cost you thousands of dollars in property damage, or worse, destroy your items with sentimental value that can not be replaced. Be proactive and save yourself the headache!
