      Hi. We have polybutylene coming in from the street to our house. There is an elbow that also transitions from polybutylene to 3/4 inch copper. Attached is a picture. The elbow has a leak. These connectors and pipe are no longer permitted in the US. The elbow cannot be found here, either. Are they available where you are? If so, send me an E-mail. Thanks for your help.

Contact the claims administrator at 800-356-3496 for more information regarding this settlement.

There are no obvious leaks..home is on a slab and entire water system was convered to municipal from well last May. Could this be a diverter problem? Thank you.
