What are common problems associated with polybutylene piping?

Some polybutylene piping issues stem for improper installation. However, most complaints are with the integrity of the piping itself.

These pipes are known to deteriorate due to contact with oxidants. These oxidants are normally found in public water supplies. The failure can happen in the pipe itself or in the plastic fittings.

One of the main concerns with the polybutylene piping is that it deteriorates from the inside. This makes it difficult to determine if the pipe is in good condition. This also makes it difficult to get a reliable assessment on the pipe, as well. These pipes are unpredictable and there are no symptoms to warn about a leak.

Some of the factors that affect this pipe include:

  • Chlorine levels.
  • Pipe age.
  • Water quality.
  • Poor installation.
  • Deterioration of metal and plastic fittings.
