Urban Piping Ltd. prides itself on utilizing only the highest quality materials for plumbing solutions. This case study showcases a significant Poly B™ Replacement project in Edmonton, where the choice of material and the expertise of the contractor played crucial roles in delivering unmatched customer satisfaction. Our dedication to using Rehau color-coded Class A PEX piping—a choice reflecting both quality and value—sets us apart in the Canadian market.

Project Background

In a residential area of Edmonton, a homeowner faced repeated challenges with polybutylene piping leaks, temporarily remedied by various contractors with Class C PEX. The recurring issues highlighted the need for a durable and reliable solution. Urban Piping Ltd. was contacted for its expertise in Poly B™ replacement, marking the beginning of a transformative project. The residence, plagued by the limitations of inferior PEX piping and fluctuating water pressures, demanded an upgrade to ensure longevity and safety.

Design and Planning

Understanding the critical importance of both the product used for piping replacement and the expertise of the contractor, Urban Piping Ltd.’s approach emphasized the use of Rehau color-coded Class A PEX. This decision was informed by the product’s durability and our comprehensive understanding of the PEX market, benefiting from bulk purchases across our Canadian operations. The planning phase involved a meticulous assessment of the property’s needs, considering the existing water pressure issues and the inferior Class C PEX previously installed.

Construction Process

The construction team, handpicked for their expertise and continuous training under the guidance of Graham, embarked on the meticulous replacement of the outdated Poly B piping. The process involved the complete removal of the existing system, installation of the new Rehau Class A PEX piping, and subsequent restoration of the home’s drywall and ceilings to their original state, including repainting. This comprehensive approach ensured not only the upgrade of the plumbing system but also the preservation of the home’s aesthetic integrity.

Additional Challenges and Solutions

The project highlighted the prevalent issue of inadequate knowledge among plumbing contractors regarding PEX piping variations. Our team’s encounter with the previously used Class C PEX, unsuitable for the neighborhood’s water pressure, underscored the necessity of informed contractor choices. Educating the customer about the differences in PEX piping became an integral part of our service, enhancing customer awareness and satisfaction.

Project Outcomes and Performance

The transformation was completed with exceptional attention to detail, resulting in a plumbing system that exceeded the homeowner’s expectations. The use of Rehau color-coded Class A PEX not only promised durability and reliability but also peace of mind for the homeowner. The customer’s elation was evident, as they marveled at the seamless restoration work and the substantial upgrade to their home’s plumbing system.

Lessons Learned

This project serves as a testament to the importance of choosing both the right materials and the right professionals for plumbing upgrades. Urban Piping Ltd.’s commitment to quality, coupled with our ongoing efforts to educate both our team and our customers about the best practices in plumbing solutions, proved essential in delivering a project that not only solved immediate issues but also paved the way for a safer, more reliable home environment.


Urban Piping Ltd. continues to set industry standards through our dedication to quality materials, expert craftsmanship, and comprehensive customer education. This case study from Edmonton not only highlights our commitment to excellence but also reinforces the significance of informed choices in maintaining a home’s safety and functionality.
