|In response to Re: Looking for Polybutylene info...|
How unbiased do you want the person to be. The last "blue service pipe" I had a problem with, I had the customer call the claims group and after talking to the agent for a while got his entry made. Since I did not try to replace it for him, not did I try to make a costly and probably ineffective repair, the claims person asked him, "Where did you find an honest plumber?" My advice to people is as follows.
If you have it, and you are within the parameters for having it replaced, call and have it replaced. If you are outside the parameters, then live with it until you have a problem and then replace it. Once one person in a neighborhood has a problem, there is a good chance that the others will also within a short time. I have had 5 or more bad pipes in a given neighborhood within a matter of a couple of weeks. Changing to metal fittings was the first fix that was being made, but the pipe itself also splits, especially where it makes a bend, even if the bend is a very long radius one. Even if only 10% have a problem, which I doubt, you do not know whether you are in the 10% or the 90%, and after 12 years it is too late to find out.
