PB pipe a problem with non-municipal water?


The home I just purchased "in the woods" has PB water pipes. Since I have my own well (no chlorine or chloramine), is there any need to replace the PB pipe?

I have never heard of anyone anywhere around where I am that has had a problem.

Your guess would be as good as anyones.

PB pipe had a lawsuit back in the 90's for leaks developing in the pipe. The leaks were attributed to water additives such as chlorine. You may be ok being on a well. I'd hire a plumber / inspector for an on-site review.
