What's the Catch?
There is no catch. We've read through dozens of complaints from people who experienced problems with their PEX tubing and fittings – and we're trying to connect them to attorneys for more help.
Attorneys working with ClassAction.org have opened an investigation into cross-linked polyethylene (PEX) piping.
They have reason to believe a number of major manufacturers can be sued for selling defective products in light of a growing number of complaints that the tubing and fittings can crack, leak and flood the surrounding area. Before the attorneys can take action, however, they need to hear from homeowners who experienced problems with their PEX tubing and fittings.
What’s Causing the PEX Piping Problems?
It is believed that some of the issues being reported by consumers are caused by one of two problems, which can be described below. Early research has suggested that these issues are not related to improper installation or overtightening, but rather a manufacturing defect.
PEX pipes are made of plastic tubing that is connected by brass fittings. It has been alleged that these fittings contain a higher-than-normal level of zinc, which, when they come in contact with water, can fail earlier than expected due to a process known as “dezincification.” This can cause a range of problems, including leaks and flooding.
It is believed that some PEX tubing may be failing due to the amount of stress placed on the brass fittings connecting the tubes. When repetitive stress is put on the fittings, a hole or notch can develop and can eventually progress to a crack or fracture.
PEX Pipe Class Action Lawsuits
A number of manufacturers, including Uponor, Viega, Nibco and Zurn, have already been sued over their PEX piping products. While some of these cases have settled or are still moving forward, attorneys are turning their attention to other brands to determine whether failure of the PEX tubing is an industry-wide problem.
