The Problem with Polybutylene
If your home or business was built in the late 70’s to mid 90’s, your plumbing pipes are probably made out of polybutylene. Polybutylene is made of plastic resin, which costs a lot less than traditional piping materials like CPVC, copper, and plastic. Because of how inexpensive and easy it was to install, many homes during that time were built with polybutylene. The problem is, polybutylene is they deteriorate really easily and they are toxic. The reason that they begin to deteriorate is that oxidants like chlorine that are commonly found in the water cause the polybutylene pipe to flake, which makes the pipes fragile and more susceptible to breaking.
A lot of homeowners and business owners in the area have polybutylene piping and at ASAP Plumbing we want to help them get safer and more affordable repiping in Chandler, AZ! We use PEX piping, which is lead-free, resistant to corrosion, and flexible. If you would like to learn more or to get rid of your polybutylene piping, call us at 480-809-9108!
We Don’t Use CPVC
In addition to not using polybutylene repiping, we also do not use CPVC piping to repipe your home or business. This is because CPVC gets brittle and cracks and breaks and the glue joints continue to deteriorate through the pipe and go bad. This has a lot to do with chlorine that is present in the water, as well as the pipes heating up when they expand. With CPVC, this is a very common thing. CPVC is one we see on a regular basis. The manufacturer even cut CPVC’s warranty from 25 years down to 10, and that only covers the pipes, not any water damage. Some of the problems with CPVC piping include
- Turning off the valve by the toilet and having it snap off in the wall
- Mopping your floor and hitting the connection, causing it to snap.
PEX pipes cost a little bit more than CVPC, but they have a 25-year warranty. And unlike CPVC, if there is a leak, PEX’s warranty covers the damage to your home so you don’t have to go through your homeowner’s insurance. To find out more about this affordable repiping in Chandler, AZ call us today!
