Say Goodbye to Polybutylene with Professional Repiping

Polybutylene Repiping Broward CountyAre polybutylene pipes interfering with your plumbing functionality?

Polybutylene pipes were commonly used as a more cost-effective alternative to replace copper pipes in commercial and residential properties in Boca Raton, Fort Lauderdale, Tamarac, Hollywood, and their surroundings. However, research has shown that these pipes react poorly with water, leading to further damage over time.

If your property is currently equipped with polybutylene pipes, upgrading to PVC pipes is highly recommended. Contact Broward Plumbing for assistance with this necessary upgrade.

Signs Your Polybutylene Pipes Need Attention

Polybutylene pipes only have a lifespan of about 20 years, and most were installed in Broward County around the 1990s or before. Clogs, wear and tear, and corrosion can accelerate pipe damage. 

If you notice the following signs, contact our team of expert plumbers in Broward County:

  • Low Water Pressure 
  • Leaks Around the Property
  • Drain or Sewer Backups 
  • Plumbing Systems Over 10 Years Old

Don't wait for polybutylene pipes to fail. Replace your pipelines with high-quality, long-lasting PVC alternatives before leaks or backups occur. As polybutylene pipes begin to degrade and age, they can cause hidden leaks in the functionality of your plumbing systems, reducing water pressure and blocking drain systems.

How To Identify Polybutylene Pipes

Polybutylene pipes are typically gray or black and have a shiny, plastic-like appearance. They are often stamped with the letters "PB2110" or "PB2110" on the side of the pipe. Additionally, these pipes are usually flexible and easy to bend, unlike copper or PVC pipes, which are more rigid. However, it's important to note that not all gray or black pipes are Polybutylene, so it's best to consult a professional plumber or home inspector if you're unsure.

Polybutylene Pipe FAQS

  • What causes Polybutylene pipe to fail?: Polybutylene pipes can fail for several reasons, including exposure to chlorine and other chemicals in the water supply, as well as general wear and tear over time. The pipes can become brittle and develop small cracks, eventually leading to leaks and water damage. The fittings used with polybutylene pipes can also fail, causing leaks and other issues.
  • Is Polybutylene safe for drinking water?: The material is not toxic and poses no health risk.
  • What are the disadvantages of Polybutylene?: One of the main disadvantages of polybutylene is that it is prone to cracking and splitting over time; another disadvantage of polybutylene is that it is not as heat-resistant as other types of piping materials, which can make it more susceptible to damage from hot water or other high-temperature liquids.
  • Is all GRAY pipe polybutylene?: Not all gray pipes are made of polybutylene. Gray pipes can be made of different materials, such as PVC, CPVC, and PEX.
  • Why was Polybutylene banned?: Polybutylene was banned because it tends to fail and cause leaks, leading to significant property damage and costly repairs. The failures were attributed to a combination of factors, including the material's susceptibility to degradation from exposure to chlorine and other chemicals commonly found in water supplies and poor installation practices.
