I'm pretty sure I have never bunched anything together. At this point there are only a few failure related problems and they seem to be fitting related though this Nibco thing might go somewhere. For the record I have never said that Viega has had even one single product related failure. I'm merely keeping a wary eye on all of them including Uponor. I have reported (note the word reported) that there have been cases where Wattspex was rejected by a local inspector due to it's restrictive fittings. I again said countless times that I and others in the area were outraged by those incidents but it still happened. I've had enough smoke blown up my ass over the years that I should have cancer by now. So I am very cautious about products, all products. Want to get me started on tankless heaters?:yes:
AnI have read many discussions regarding Pex and just wante to let you know our problem. Please keep in mind, my house is only 2 years old and is 4,500 sq. ft. located in Southern California. Friday night, we found a lot of water leaking from our 2nd floor to our first, soaking our ceiling, walls, a door frame and carpet. We called out a plumber and after cutting a couple holes he discovered a leak in our Pex line caused by mice. It was repaired. Saturday, a second line in a garage wall began leaking. This time I opened up the wall and discovered 3 seperate locations where the mice were chewing threw our lines like it is candy or something. Now, I am faced with the very real likelyhood of more lines going any day, because I know they have been chewing on them anywhere they have access to them. I urge all the plumbers on here to consider this when they are putting Pex lines in homes. To repipe a house of this size is something I can't afford. What are your oppinions on going after the builder for this? I just don't know what to do, but I know a 2 year old house should not have to be going through this. I am at a loss while waiting for the next leak. Yes, I have put poison in every crawl space, attic, garage cupboards, etc. Hopefully, I don't kill my pets in the process. Any advice would be very helpfull. You can email me directly if you don't want to post here.other for your collection Duck.
