Is this piping O.K. ?


ASTM D 3309 REV A Standard Specification for Polybutylene (PB) Plastic Hot- and Cold-Water Distribution Systems

If you like Polybutylene it is fine Gary.

Just wanted to make sure.

Hey Gary I was not familar with that ASTM number either. We both learned something.

There was an ad in the local paper recently by some lawyer or firm telling homeowners to contact them if they have PB pipe in their homes. I always point out the presence of the stuff and recommend evaluation/consultation with a qualified plumber.


An interesting quote from the above link: “FACT: A copper repipe is about the same cost as a recarpet.”
