I have a home that was bulit in 1996 that has poly pipe. I just fixed my second ceiling leak and my third basement leak and have decided to repipe the whole house. I have luckily found a repuatble plumber who has expreince doing this, and so I am hopeful that my nightmare will end soon. This is my question. If the lawsuit was setlled in 1995,how come my house was built with this stuff. Do I look to the builder, the plumber, or the local building department? Or, is it possible that although the lawsuit was settled, the pipe was still being used. I was told that the lawsuit involve hte makrs of the pipes and what wnet into making them. Does any one know if and when this stuff was outlaawed for use or does it vary by area?
