Poly B™ FAQ
Poly B™ Vancouver – Poly B™ Pipe Replacement
Commercial and residential poly-b replacement is a required project that must be undertaken to prevent possible property damages and threat to health that failed poly-b pipes can cause. Although poly-b pipes were cheaper than other plumbing pipes, they are more vulnerable to damages and were targeted in class action lawsuits in the past.
As a result, homes and businesses that have poly-b pipes installed in them, especially in Vancouver and Lower Mainland, British Columbia should start considering replacing these pipes as soon as possible.
What is Polybutylene Piping?
Polybutylene or poly-b pipes are gray plumbing pipes made from plastic resin and used for water supply lines or plumbing system of a house. Polybutylene pipes were first introduced to the construction world around 1975 as a cheaper alternative to copper pipe. As a result, most townhomes, condos, apartment buildings, single dwelling houses, and many shopping malls in Vancouver and Lower Mainland, British Columbia have poly-b pipes installed in them.
Unfortunately, polybutylene pipes have proven to be defective and resulted in diverse water damages. As a result, its production was discontinued – making its replacement a mandatory project for residential and commercial buildings.
What Does Poly B™ Piping Need to Be Replaced
Around 1995, the production and use of polybutylene pipe was discontinued because of several reasons centered on the failure of the pipes that resulted in damages worth millions of dollars. As a result, buildings with poly-b pipes need to replace them as soon as possible.
Here are some reasons for poly-b replacement in Vancouver and Lower Mainland, British Columbia.
Poly B™ Piping Cracks
Polybutylene pipes have been found to break after some years of use because they are made from plastic resin that cannot last forever. These cracks cause poly-b pipes to leak and result in flooding and water damages in several homes.
Poly B™ Piping Bursts Due to Water Pressure
Polybutylene pipes are designed to handle water pressure below 70 pounds. However, in homes with higher water pressure reaching over 100 pounds pressure, poly-b pipes crack or burst.
Poly B™ Piping and Water Temperature
Poly-b pipes also become weak faster with excessive water temperature. The plastic becomes weak over time, even with the use of chlorine, chloramine, and other oxidant chemicals used for treating water. The pipes become brittle and vulnerable to bursting of cracking.
Poly B™ Piping and Health Issues
Wet areas allow mold to grow. And mold has been linked to several health issues such as allergies, respiratory issues, headaches, etc. Poly-b pipes’ failure will cause the walls of the home to be wet and all mold to grow.
From the reasons above, it is essential to start commercial and residential poly-b replacement in Vancouver and Lower Mainland, British Columbia to avoid the mishaps above. However, you must hire a professional plumbing company for the replacement project. Urban Piping can help you in this regard.
