        Our 1980 mobile home has had leaks in the plumbing over the past several years. The plumbing is made of a type of urethane. I read about a year ago about a lawsuit that had been filed against the original manufacturer of that plumbing material. Are you aware of the lawsuit so that damage to floors, walls and carpets might be collected?

        Thank you

            The pipe in question was the gray Polybutylene. I suspect yours is the black plastic. The only mobile homes covered are those with the gray pipe, constructed in the last 11 years.
