Polybutylene pipes
Posted by Joe Caulfield on June 27, 2004 at 18:41:18:
I recently placed a purchase offer on a house built in 1989.During the home inspection I found out it was completely plumbed with polybutylene. Being from the north east I never heard of this stuff before.The owner of the house is refusing to release me from the contract without a fight,even though he had prior knowledge of the piping and its problems,he said the pipes are still performing.This house is in N.C.,and they are moving into the critical 10-15 year mark.Do I have any recourse? should the owner have disclosed this info.
