      Anyone have any advice for help on replacing the poly-blue pipes in a home that is over 10 years old and has just missed the 10 year limit? Is there another way to get this stuff replaced without too much out of pocket expenses to myself? Should a typical homeowners policy cover this? What would it fall under? I would appreciate any information.

      : Not true! First you must determine what type of home it is. If it is a mobile home then you must file a claim within 11 years of the plumbing installation. If you live in a Single family dwelling and you have plastic fittings you have to file a claim within 14 years of the plumbings installation. Lastly, if you live in a Single family dwelling that has metal insert fittings then you have to file the claim within 17 years of the plumbing installation. Although the timeliness in which you file you claim is a major factor, keep in mind that there are many other pieces to the puzzle. Please e-mail me if you have any questions at precise@looksmart.com : The best advice I can give you is to check that you do not have the gray PB inside the house. If yo do, that has a 12 year limit.: : Anyone have any advice for help on replacing the poly-blue : : pipes in a home that is over 10 years old and has just : : missed the 10 year limit?

      Do you know if I have any recourse if I bought a mobile home 2 years ago, but the home was manufactured in 1982 or 1983 and has the gray polybut pipe inside. I havent experienced any leaks but I dont know the history of the mobile home and its prior owner.
