Polybutylene use after 1995???
Posted by Ruth on October 24, 2002 at 13:30:22:
I am looking at a house built in 1997 that the inspector says has polybutylene pipes visible with copper inside the house(visible connections and copper under sinks etc). I am confused as to why this product was installed after 1995 and the lawsuits. I cannot find that this product was removed even from international plunbing codes, even though some municipalities removed it from their codes. Unforutnately it was part of the code in 1997.

If I purchase this house and sustain damage, I will not be covered by the lawsuits because it was installed after 1995. HELP!!
