Lilburn Polybutylene Pipe Replacement
Polybutylene pipe is a blue or gray pipe that was used extensively for hot and cold water supply lines in homes built from the mid 1970’s to the mid 1990’s. It was also used for water service lines that connect the house to the water main at the street. Once hailed as an economical, easy to work with type of piping, polybutylene pipe turned out to be one of the top failures of the construction industry regarding plumbing services.

Polybutylene pipe was taken off the market after it was discovered that the pipe reacted to chlorine commonly found in drinking water supplies. The chlorine causes the pipes to decay from the inside out and sooner or later, a polybutylene pipe will rupture or start to leak and will require water line repair. The manufacturers of polybutylene pipe had to pay billions of dollars as a result of a huge class action lawsuit, but the fund has long since been exhausted and no more claims will be paid.
Most polybutylene pipe has been replaced, but there are still some homes with polybutylene pipes in them. If your home is one of these, it is just a matter of time before a pipe bursts or starts leaking, often with disastrous results. Many of these pipes are hidden in walls and ceilings so when they burst, they can cause extensive damage to walls, ceilings, floors and your personal property.
