Initially, contractors installed millions of polybutylene pipes in houses across the United States. However, manufacturing was finally halted due to complaints that polybutylene pipe failures caused property damage.

Polybutylene (PB) pipe was formerly commonplace in homes built decades ago. On the other hand, polybutylene pipes are too brittle to survive the toxins contained in public water supplies.

Things Affecting Polybutylene Pipe

Polybutylene Pipes Are Bad News for Your Home

Because the corrosion of the pipe occurs from within, when a pipe leaks with polybutylene pipe, it is typically quite dangerous. Leaks in poly pipes are unpredictable, and there are no warning signals that a leak is about to occur. Poor plumber installation is one factor that might harm polybutylene pipe. Some things that affect polybutylene piping detrimentally consist of:

  • The condition of the water
  • Century-old pipes and fittings
  • Tolerances were calibrated on all devices utilized during the installation
  • Mineral and chlorine concentrations
  • Pipe fittings begin to corrode
