In response to Re: Polybutylene use after 1995???

: 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!!

Ruth,
The lawsuits are old lawsuits. It was a class action suit.
For those that would like a newer set of dates, there would need to be another one.
