The Barrhaven Plumbing Professionals at John the Plumber Explain the Polybutylene Pipe Problem

Polybutylene is a flexible plastic pipe that was once widely used in the plumbing of Canadian homes. Between the 1970ís and 1990ís a large number of homes in Canada were built with polybutylene pipes. The problem with polythene pipes is that they are unreliably designed to crack, leak, and break. That is why homeowners who notice something wrong with their plumbing should immediately contact the professionals at John the Plumber.

Ottawa, Canada, April 08, 2015 --( According to research conducted by North Vancouver lawyer Jim Poyne, “Polybutylene piping was installed in more than 700,000 houses across Canada … between 1976 and 1997.” Homeowners who believe their pipes may be made from polybutylene but haven’t noticed any issues are encouraged to maintain the condition of their pipes.

To make the best of polybutylene pipes, ensure that:

- There are no cracks or leaks in joints
- Water pressure is between 40-60 psi
- No polybutylene pipes are connected to a hot water heater
- If living in a high chlorine level area, a water filter is installed
- They are used in a circulating hot water loop
- If using hot and cold water, the hot water tank is set to 51 -55 degrees Celsius

To learn more about polybutylene piping, contact experts at Barrhaven plumbing company, John the Plumber, by visiting their website at
