          Mark, sorry about the delay. I received your e-mails and just noticed your post. We are currently out of cards, but should have them back soon. You will be first on the list.

          In the interim, you can direct your clients to:


          for information and contractor referrals or they can e-mail us directly at:

          [email protected]

          HOME INSPECTORS: What Mark is requesting are our business card size cards that simple have a website address on them so your clients can get independent information about polybutylene. We offer the only non-commercial cards. Plumbing Express offers a similar card, but you are doing nothing more than promoting Plumbing Express and directing your clients to a commercial site.

          Sorry about the delay Mark.

            Home Inspectors – Here is some additional information about polybutylene plumbing. As for the Poly Info Cards, if you would like some to hand out to your clients, please e-mail us at: [email protected]. The cards are free, and they get you off the hook with poly questions.

            GENERAL POLYBUTYLENE INFORMATION AND SOURCES: Comprehensive and FACTUAL Information Site for Polybutylene Information, Class Action Links and Contractor Opportunities. This site hides nothing and is here to HELP you – http://www.polybutylene411.org
            This is a not for profit site that is here for one reason . . . to help you deal with repipe issues.
            There are some sites that appear to be providing you with complete information about polybutylene. Some of these are commercial sites in the poly replacement business. They tell you what they want you to know. And some tell you different stories. Plumbing Express using their site http://www.polybutylene.com states that they do not use subcontractors, but they are advertising for subcontractors to do repipe work.
            We do NOT recommend you allowing a subcontractor to do repipe work in your home. Plumbing Express also lists their site as providing the most accurate information. I urge you to question some of the statements they make. And most important, question the references and testimonials they list. You will find that some of the names of the people providing the references cannot be found in the areas that Plumbing Express notes. The best thing to do is ask for the phone numbers of some of the testimonials that you select, or try to get the phone number from information. You will be amazed how inaccurate some of the information they provide is, and how misleading some of the testimonials are.

            Some repipe companies do not even want you to have the class action phone numbers, even though they claim to be information sites with complete information. A better name would be Poly Info Limited for these sites. When you do see them posting a class action phone number some of these sites it is generally for someone that has already missed the deadline for filing. For example, you will see them post the phone numbers for the class actions when it is an exterior line that is older than 10 years old. If it is less than 10 years old or they are not sure, they will direct you to their site and try to sell you the job for the highest price possible.

            If you do not qualify for the class action suits do NOT simply let a contractor tell you there are no alternatives. We can provide you with alternative solutions, as well as a list of top contractors to get estimates from. You certainly need more than one or two estimates and several referrals. We will also tell you the questions to ask your contractor to make sure they have crews that are qualified to do the work in your home. For example, make sure you ask any contractor if he has left a job and the house caught fire from hotspots they left in the walls. This is a very key question.

            Also be sure to ask all companies for a few phone numbers of the references or testimonials they show you. Don’t let them select which ones if they are featured on a website. Just ask them for the names and phone numbers of the ones you want to call. You may find some surprises.
