Poly B Piping Calgary
If your home was constructed between the late ‘70s and ‘90s, its plumbing system might feature grey plastic piping. This is polybutylene pipe, or poly-b pipe. It was considered a cheaper alternative to PEX or copper piping – at least in the short term. So, why has its popularity declined?

Poly-B Piping Calgary
Since its heyday, it’s been discovered that exposure to UV rays weaken the resin of poly-b piping, which can lead to multiple pinhole leaks about 10 to 20 years after installation. And because deterioration starts happening from the inside, you can’t tell where a rupture will start from a simple external visual examination.
You can prolong the integrity of your poly-b piping by:
- Replacing any plastic fittings with metal fittings.
- Lowering the temperature of your water heater.
- Testing your water pressure to ensure it’s within acceptable levels for polybutylene.
We Can Replace Your Poly-B Pipe with Higher Grade Piping.
What’s the problem with poly-b piping?
- When polybutylene pipe is exposed to UV rays before installation, the resin is weakened.
- Over time, the weak spots become pinhole leaks.
- If your fittings are also plastic, they become brittle and susceptible to breakage.
- If you have high water pressure, weakened joints can rupture.
- Hot water can accelerate the deterioration process.
- It can impact your home insurance and your ability to sell your home.
But don’t worry. If you haven’t experienced issues with your piping, then you don’t need to replace your piping right away. However, if you spot a leak, or wish to be proactive, we highly recommend that you schedule an appointment.

Poly-B Replacement Review
We just had Poly-B pipes replaced in our home. A fairly big project, time and cost wise, that went over for 3-days. Simply amazing workmanship by Shaun K. and Ben. From the initial visit by Shaun to provide a quote, in-between communications with office staff Becky P. and right till the end, the entire experience was nothing but positive.
Both Shaun and Ben were helpful, kind, and approachable. They took the time to answer any questions I put to them during the project. Cleaned up thoroughly after each day’s work and explained what was done and what to expect the following day. This level of communication helps a great deal to understand the work going on and maintain expectations.
I have already recommended Instant Plumbing and Shaun to a colleague for a similar work on their home. Excellent all around. Thank you Shaun, Ben and Becky for all your help – we greatly appreciated it.
