Is it still legal to install PB? I have looked at the 2000 IRC and the 2003 IRC and it appears that it is. Could someone verify this for me? Brad

It has never been “illegal” to install PB. PB is no longer in production and previous installations have failed miserably, mostly due to problems with fittings and connectors.


So to answer your question, I guess it is still "allowed," but anyone currently installing PB, with all of the documented problems, will certainly be on the hook for damages when it fails.
