What is Poly B

Poly B, also referred to as Polybutylene, is a flexible grey pipe used in hot water systems and residential plumbing. It was manufactured in between the years of 1978 and 1998 because of its flexibility, low cost, and ease of installation. It is estimated that in Canada alone there are over 700,000 homes that have had this piping installed prior to it being discontinued. Each and every one of these homes is at risk of poly b issues happening.

A disaster waiting to happen!

“For thousands of Canadian homeowners, it's a nightmare that's come true: a leak in the plumbing, somewhere behind the drywall, under the new and expensive tiles. This is a story that's caused untold headaches for homeowners, millions of dollars in lawsuits south of the border and now it's a story the Canadian Standards Association doesn't want you to hear.” CBC Feb 9, 1999
