Anyone had any luck with polybutylene piping

We found out the hard way that we have this piping in our home. This is the same type of piping that was involved in the major classaction suite. Curious if anyone here was able to replace them and had success. Luckily for us they have not leaked yet, however when installing new lights one bursted by just brushing it.

That's bad news.

jbooma,

The class action is still open and will pay to fix your pipes if you have one burst. The result of the court action established a corporation which helps folks get their plumbing replaced, but only if it fails within the time limit set by the court decision. The funds are still available for a few more years if your pipes fail.

We almost bought a house with these pipes, but pulled our bid when we found out about them -- the sellers were trying to keep it from us. Anyway, there's a web site for the coporation that administers the money, just Google polybutylene piping.
