Polybutylene pipes were extensively used from 1978 to 1995 in water piping, that due to the low cost of the material.
You can recognize this type of piping by its color. It’s usually white or gray showing a pipe attached, and although the failing of polybutylene pipes is scarce, some factors like the oxidants in the public water supplies can cause micro-fractures damaging the whole system, causing it to eventually leak.
Many of the pipe replacements and repairs that we’ve done through our years offering plumbing services in the San Diego County have been polybutylene piping systems, and we’ve been witnesses of how devastating these kind of water leaks can be, so if you suspect having an issue with your polybutylene piping system and you need to repair or replace it, give us a call.
