Washington, DC (Vocus) September 30, 2010
The Construction Defect Center says, "according to court filings Uponor admits their P Pex, and MB Pex fittings are defective and unreasonably dangerous were used in plumbing systems installed in homes and buildings across the country." The group says, "apparently Uponor has replaced the fittings in homes built by some of the nation's largest home builders, however, Uponor refuses to do the same for individual homeowners stuck with a potentially defective plumbing product? We want to hear from anyone who has had a problem with these Uponor plumbing fittings." For more information homeowners, or plumbers can contact the Construction Defect Center at 866-714-6466, or contact the group via their web site at http://ConstructionDefectCenter.Com
According to court documents, "Uponor plumbing systems, and fittings allegedly fail when they are exposed to water because of a chemical reaction known as dezincification, which results in reduced water flow and leaks." The Construction Defect Center says, "based on our research, the P Pex, and MB Pex brass fittings can cause enormous damage for a homeowner when they crack, or begin leaking. Further, because the problem with these brass fittings creates a chemical reaction called dezincification, a homeowner may not be getting anything close to normal water pressure in their home." The Construction defect Center says, most amazing of all, Uponor marketed their brass insert fittings as being resistant to corrosion, easier to install, and longer-lasting than copper plumbing systems." Homeowners who have incurred significant loss because of a failed Uponor P Pex, or MB Pex plumbing brass fitting should contact the Construction Defect Center immediately at 866-714-6466, or contact the group via its web site at http://ConstructionDefectCenter.Com
