What Are Poly-B Pipes?

Poly-B Pipes are a type of plumbing pipe made from polybutylene, a flexible plastic material. They were commonly used as water supply lines in homes and commercial buildings during the 1980s and 1990s due to their low cost and ease of installation. However, it was later discovered that Poly-B Pipes have significant issues with durability, which can lead to frequent leaks and ruptures.

Over time, exposure to water and chemicals in the plumbing system can cause the Poly-B Pipes to weaken and become brittle. This can result in small leaks that may go unnoticed for years, eventually causing significant water damage and mold growth. In addition, Poly-B Pipes are prone to rupturing unexpectedly, which can cause flooding and other costly problems.

Poly-B Pipe Replacement FAQs

Got questions? We’ve got you covered.

  • How can I tell if my home has poly-b pipes? Poly-b pipes are typically gray or off-white in color and are flexible to the touch. They can be found in the home's main water supply lines, as well as in the hot and cold water lines of the house.
  • Are poly-b pipes dangerous? While poly-b pipes are not inherently dangerous, over time they can degrade and become brittle, which can lead to bursting or leaking. Additionally, they have been known to leach toxic chemicals into the water supply, which can be harmful if consumed.
  • How much does it cost to replace poly-b pipes? The cost of replacing poly-b pipes can vary depending on the size and layout of the home, as well as the materials used for the replacement. On average, the cost can range from $2,000 to $10,000.
  • Is it necessary to replace all of the poly-b pipes in a home? If poly-b pipes are found to be in good condition and not leaking, it may not be necessary to replace all of them. However, if they are found to be degraded or leaking, it is recommended to replace them as soon as possible.
  • Can poly-b pipes be repaired instead of replaced? While it is possible to repair small leaks or damage to poly-b pipes, it is generally recommended to replace them entirely due to their tendency to degrade over time and become more prone to leaks and bursts.

Why Do Poly-B Pipes Need To Be Replaced?

Poly-B pipes have been found to be problematic, and replacement may be necessary to ensure the safety and reliability of your plumbing system. Some of the reasons why Poly-B Pipes need to be replaced are:

  • Chlorine Reactivity: Chlorine from tap water can react with the Poly-B piping, causing the pipes to become brittle, crack, and leak. This can result in significant water damage and other costly problems.
  • Internal Erosion: Poly-B pipes deteriorate from the inside out, which can cause leaks that may go unnoticed for years. This can result in water damage, mold growth, and other hazards.
  • Difficulty Selling Homes: Poly-B pipes can make it challenging to sell your home, as buyers are becoming more aware of the risks associated with this type of piping.
  • Insurance Coverage: Insurance companies are increasingly unwilling to provide coverage for homes with Poly-B piping, or charge high premiums and deductibles.
