Polybutylene pipes

Another issue that homeowners in Florida are encountering is “polybutylene” pipes, which is a form of plastic resin that was used about from the mid 1970’s- through late 1990’s. Due to the low cost of the material and ease of installation, polybutylene was used as a substitute for traditional copper piping during the housing boom. Some homeowners with polybutylene are now having plumbing problems.

Polybutylene systems, as well as galvanized systems, are known to have the most problems. As they corrode and rust, the water quality will suffer, which can be a huge problem for homeowners.
