Polybutylene Pipes
Posted by Greg Kill on May 07, 2002 at 10:15:16:
We purchased our house 3 years ago and now when we go to sell it, the home inspector finds that our plumbing is polybutylene. the customer refuses to buy it and we lose our earnest money with the home we are purchasing. The pipes going into each water source (sinks, water heater, basins, etc) are all copper. How can I determine what is in the walls and can I require the contracted plumber who built my house to pay for replacement costs under the house which has the polybutylene pipes?
