Hello,

I recently learned about the hazards of Poly B, and the fact that I may have some in 12 supply lines going up to two adjacent bathrooms. House built in 1990. Copper joints.

How urgent and/or necessary is it to repipe?

Assuming repipe is necessary, and recommendations for the Columbus Ohio area?

Are you on municipal water or a well?

If it’s a well I wouldn’t worry too much about it. If it’s supplied water then it depends on their chlorine count.

Where I live, we have some of the best municipal water in Canada, but the chlorine amount is high so Poly B failures happen a few times a year.
