Poly B pipes, also known as Polybutylene pipes, are a type of plastic piping material that was commonly used in residential plumbing systems in the 1970s to the mid-1990s. However, due to issues with durability and frequent reports of leaking and rupturing, Poly B pipes have largely fallen out of favor and are no longer used in new construction.

Reasons for Poly B Pipe Replacement 

Why Replace Poly B Pipes?

If you have Poly B pipes, you should replace them immediately as they may contaminate the water supply or break at some point. 

  • Risk of leaks and ruptures - polybutylene pipes are known to deteriorate over time, especially when exposed to certain chemicals commonly found in water supply systems or when subjected to high water pressure. This can result in the pipes becoming brittle and developing small fractures or cracks, leading to leaks and potential water damage in the home.

  • Fittings failures - the fittings used with Poly B pipes, which are made of plastic or acetal resin, have shown a tendency to fail over time. These failures can occur due to stress, pressure, and exposure to certain chemicals, leading to leaks and potential flooding in the property.

  • Insurance issues - many insurance companies have restrictions or limitations when it comes to covering homes with Poly B plumbing systems. Some may refuse to provide coverage altogether, while others may charge higher premiums due to the increased risk of water damage associated with these pipes.

  • Decreased property value - homes with Polybutylene pipes may be perceived as higher risk and may have reduced property value compared to homes with more reliable plumbing systems. This can make it difficult to sell a home with Poly B pipes or lead to lower offers from potential buyers.

Replacing Polybutylene pipes with more durable and reliable piping materials, such as copper or PEX, is a proactive measure to avoid potential plumbing issues, water damage, health risks, insurance problems, and maintain the value of the property. Get a FREE estimate today!


Signs that your Have Poly B Pipes

How to Identify Poly B Pipes?

Polybutylene (Poly B) pipes are typically gray in color, but they can also be white, silver, black, or blue. They are normally stamped with "PB2110". They are usually 1/2 to 1 inch in diameter and have a flexible, plastic-like appearance. Poly B pipes often have a stamp or marker on them that indicates they are made of Polybutylene, but these markings can sometimes be difficult to locate or may have worn off over time.

If you suspect that your home may have Poly B pipes, one way to confirm their presence is to contact a licensed plumber or home inspector to perform a thorough inspection of your plumbing system. They can identify the type of pipes you have and provide recommendations for any necessary repairs or replacements.
