    We had several new construction homes in our City recently report this and it turns out it was the SharkBite connectors breaking down....

    If it’s the o-rings in the SharkBite connectors breaking down that’s scary. I could see an expensive class action case brewing.

    If it’s the rubber lining of braided stainless steel hose breaking down I would understand.

    I suspect it was the metal disintegrating.
