Free Polybutylene Pipe Replacement

Polybutylene piping must have been installed prior to August 21, 1995; piping must meet the criteria for the lawsuit based on your claim details and the scrutiny of the adjuster. Many polybutylene systems will have leaks before the time frame of the lawsuit is expired and that leak might be covered. However, one major leak can destroy priceless personal items and in some cases can lead to a water bill in the thousands of dollars. Here is a basic breakdown of the qualifications for free replacement.
