Polybutylene Plumbing Replacement
Polybutylene Plumbing is a gray plastic pipe with plastic or metal scalings. In the 1970s when the piping system was developed, it was seen as the “pipe of the future”. The appeal of the plastic piping was in its ease of installation and low cost, but over time the evident shortfalls of this piping system became apparent as consumers of this type of piping began to report leaks. It became clear that Polybutylene piping was a bit problematic and its symptoms were diagnosed as follows:
- Polybutylene plumbing was prone to leakage on the joints
- The plastic material becomes scaly and flaky, and brittle over
- Due to the flaking and brittleness that results over time, the overall structural form of the pipes become compromised
Consumers who experienced problems with their Polybutylene piping reported damage done to their property and possessions. Due to these issues, sales of the Polybutylene piping systems were dismantled in the US and many consumers began to change their plastic pipes back to the traditional copper. It is also believed that even if a consumer’s Polybutylene piping has not leaked yet, it eventually will, and therefore it is in the consumer’s best interest to replace those pipes in order to avoid future problems

A++++! I had a back up that was spewing water from the downstairs toilet. After calling one company at about 7:30 am on a Friday, and they said they would have to get back to me because no one was in the office. So much for emergency work. I called TCR, and Terry came out within 15 minutes of my call. Diagnosed the problem, came up with a plan of attack, and he and his sons got water flowing to the sewer again in less than 2 hours. We ended up having a root bound drain pipe. I will definitely call Terry again to fix any other plumbing problems I may have.
I unfortunately came home to discover that my walls were weeping from a burst pipe. My leasing company contacted TCR for me and they were absolutely wonderful and incredibly kind. I was contacted by their dispatcher and when they found out that I had had to cut off my main water line, they had people out within 2 hours of my call. Both plumbers who came were very professional and nice. On top of that, they had my problem sorted quickly. They very obviously knew what they were doing. Cannot recommend them highly enough.
One day I had a neighbor call to notify me that I had a leak at my house. I was 15 minutes away and I called Terry, and he was there and had the water turned off at the main before I was even home. The insurance company told me that he probably saved me (them) $25,000 by doing that.
