For many home owners with polybutyline pipe in their homes the announcement of a settlement in the replacement and repairs of poorly functioning pipe will be music to their ears.
The $1.103 billion Settlement of the class action lawsuit was entered on November 17, 1995 but many home owners do not know about how to recover money to cover all of their past costs.
The lawsuit was brought on behalf of homeowners with polybutylene plumbing (PB pipe). Eligible homeowners could receive a free replacement of their PB pipe.
The PB pipe must have been installed between January 1, 1978 and July 31,1995 but if your PB pipe has leaked in the past or leaks in the future, you may be entitled to benefits.
What Does the Settlement Provide?
The Settlement provides a free replacement of the PB pipe and compensation for damage to property of homeowners with qualifying leaks. If your home has PB pipe, please visit the Web site or call the toll-free number below to get complete information on eligibility, filing a claim and deadlines. You must complete a Claim Eligibility Form to qualify for relief.
