Is this a form of Polybutylene plumbing? I was caught off guard when I saw this type of piping. About 20 feet of it runs from the water heater and then connects to copper which feeds the rest of the supply lines in the home. The grey piping does not appear to be very old.
Any direction is greatly appreciated. This is for a Four Point Inspection.
That sounds to be like they might have re-plumbed most of the home. Usually when you see that pipe on the water heater, it is or was in the rest of the house. I would check permits or try to obtain a history or disclosure from the seller.
I wouldn’t make the assumption that the only area of poly is what you saw in the garage.
I have found in numerous instances where there were copper stubs and poly pipe as well as some areas that have been replaced, in an attic for instance, where the rest was not.
