RESPONSE: You may still qualify for a partial reimbursement from the Spencer facility. Phone and website noted below.

And here is some additional information about polybutylene. If you need a referral for a contractor in your area, e-mail us a

Comprehensive and FACTUAL Information Site for Polybutylene Information, Class Action Links and Contractor Opportunities. This site hides nothing and is here to HELP you -

There are some sites that appear to be providing you with complete information about polybutylene. Some of these are commercial sites in the poly replacement business. They tell you what they want you to know. In fact, they do not even want you to have the class action phone numbers, even though they claim to be information sites with complete information. A better name would be Poly Info Limited for these sites. When you do see them posting a class action phone number some of these sites it is generally for someone that has already missed the deadline for filing. For example, you will see them post the phone numbers for the class actions when it is an exterior line that is older than 10 years old. If it is less than 10 years old or they are not sure, they will direct you to their site and try to sell you the job for the highest price possible.

If you do not qualify for the class action suits do NOT simply let a contractor tell you there are no alternatives. We can provide you with alternative solutions, as well as a list of top contractors to get estimates from. You certainly need more than one or two estimates and several referrals. We will also tell you the questions to ask your contractor to make sure they have crews that are qualified to do the work in your home. For example, make sure you ask any contractor if he has left a job and the house caught fire from hotspots they left in the walls. This is a very key question.

Also be sure to ask all companies for a few phone numbers of the references or testimonials they show you. Don't let them select which ones if they are featured on a website. Just ask them for the names and phone numbers of the ones you want to call. You may find some surprises.

: Our home was built in 1985. We purchased it in Dec 1999. We started doing some remodeling and have found 3 leaks. We filed a claim with the Cox Oil (CPRC) and they came and inspected the house. Our claim was rejected, based on the fact that our home was older than the 13 year limit. We are upset and wondering what other options are open to us, since we still have leaking pipes through no fault of our own. We didn't even know

about PB pipe until it was too late. Anyone with more information or experiences similar to ours please contact us. THANK-YOU
