NIBCO PEX pipe leaks

We have had 6 leaks, 5 were pinpoint leak in 1/2 in pipes; 1 was a split in 3/4 in pipe, all were hot water pipes.The pipe is white and also has a “next-pure” after the NIBCO label. We have been working on getting compensation from NIBCO to have all the pipes replaced, and to recover expenses for drywall, hardwood flooring, paint plumbing bills etc. Has anyone else experienced this type of problem?

WE HAVE HAD ONE PIN HOLE LEAK ABOUT A YEAR AGO. THIS WAS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE PIPE AND NOT AT THE FITTINGS. NOW, TODAY WE HAVE ANOTHER ONE THAT WAS NOT DISCOVERED FOR WEEKS AND WE HAVE A TERRIBLE MESS ON OUR HANDS. THIS PIN HOLE LEAK ALSO WAS IN BETWEEN FITTINGS, BOTH HOT WATER PIPES. OUR MESS CONSISTS OF MOLD BEHIND THE DISHWASHER AND ON THE CABINETS IT SAT BETWEEN AND ON THE COUNTERTOP UNDERNEATH. ALSO ON THE TILE BACKSPLASH GROUT. WE HAD TO TEAR OUT SHEETROCK TO GET TO WHERE IT WAS LEAKING. WE ARE WAITING ON OUR INSURANCE COMPANY TO CHECK IT OUT. THIS PIPE IS RED. CAN`T FIND THE NAME ON THE PIECES THAT WERE REPLACED A YEAR AGO. WE DO HAVE QPEX FITTINGS, BUT SO FAR THEY ARE HOLDING. THIS RESPONSE COMES FROM FOLEY, ALABAMA
