Polybutylene piping is a low cost and easily installed plastic resin piping that was highly popular for U.S. homes from 1978 to 1995. Used for both underground water mains and interior plumbing, polybutylene piping typically substitutes for the more expensive copper pipes.
After about 10 to 15 years, polybutylene piping begins to degrade and leak, causing significant damage to the buildings it serves. The cause of the interior degradation is usually the pipe's reaction to the oxidants in public water supplies, though poor installation can also be a culprit. Often, the leaks are difficult to predict and examine.
The best way to halt the deterioration of polybutylene piping, and the damage that can result from it, is to get rid of the pipes altogether.
