Replacing Polybutylene Pipes: What You Need to Know

Are you considering replacing the polybutylene pipes in your home? If so, you're not alone. The International Association of Certified Home Inspectors recommends that polybutylene pipes be replaced in all homes due to their tendency to become brittle and leak within 15 years. Replacing them can help prevent costly damage caused by a pipe leak. At ABC Plumbing, we specialize in replacing polybutylene pipes with new copper or PEX pipes. Our pipes come with a lifetime warranty, can include drywall repair, and can often be completed in 1 or 2 days.

We also have special financing options available. But why will insurance companies continue to renew insurance annually for homes with PB pipes without changing coverage, but when the house is sold, the new owner can't take out insurance? This is because a home inspector can identify PB pipes, but they don't examine the inside like a plumber would. Just a day ago, my house, which was built in the 80s, a pipe broke. The plumber informed me that it had polybutylene pipes and that I needed to return to pipes in my house so that my France would cover the refinishing. If you're looking for an experienced plumbing company to replace your polybutylene pipes, look no further than ABC Plumbing. We have years of experience and are dedicated to providing quality service at an affordable price.
