The Construction Defect Center is saying, "we desperately need neighborhood, or local US plumbing companies to get the word out to their customers about Uponor's, or RTI's P Pex, and MB Pex defective brass fittings. Based on court papers-the entire home should have all of the defective Uponor, or RTI's P Pex, or MB Pex fittings replaced." In court documents, Minnesota-based Uponor Inc. admits to selling defective, and dangerous plumbing fittings, but refuses to honor homeowner warranties. The group says," we desperately need to get the word out to plumbers in every US city, county, and state, in the hopes they can contact their homeowners-clients, who have the P Pex, or MB Pex Uponor fittings, or RTI defective fittings in their homes, or buildings. Again based on court papers, we think the fittings should all be replaced, and we want to hear from plumbers, or homeowners who have already had to replace one of these fittings." Plumbers, or homeowners wishing more information can call the Construction Defect Center anytime at 866-714-6466, or contact the group via its web site at http://ConstructionDefectCenter.Com

although Uponor and RTI advertised, and warranted their brass P PEX, or MB Pex fittings for as long as 25 years, the fittings began failing -- sometimes only months after installation.

The Construction Defect Center says, "according to court papers, plumbing fittings called P Pex & MB Pex, sold by Uponor, Inc, and its wholly-owned subsidiary Radiant Technology, Inc, are defective and fail prematurely, causing extensive water damage to homes, commercial buildings and other property." The products at issue are brass fittings inserted into crosslinked polyethylene (PEX) tubing. The group says, "although Uponor and RTI advertised, and warranted their brass P PEX, or MB Pex fittings for as long as 25 years, the fittings began failing -- sometimes only months after installation." The Construction Defect Center has already identified homeowners in New York, and California, where this has happened. When the fittings fail, water leaks can severely damage walls, floors, and other personal property. All of Uponor's fittings are identified by a P Pex or MB Pex stamped on their side. The Construction Defect Center says, "our investigation involves homes, or buildings built nationwide from 2004-2007. We are talking about 100,000's of US homes, in what could be the largest ever plumbing recall in history." If a homeowner, or plumber has had a failed brass fitting that was produced by Uponor, or RTI, they should contact the Construction Defect Center immediately at 866-714-6466 or via its web site at http://ConstructionDefectCenter.com

The Construction Defect Center says, "Uponor, or RTI's plumbing systems, and fittings called P Pex & MB Pex 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 create a chemical reaction called dezincification, a homeowner may not be getting any where 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. What the homeowner, or most plumbers do not realize is that by fixing just one failed P Pex, or MB Pex fitting-you have not corrected the entire problem. Based on court papers all of the fittings could fail." Homeowners, or building owners, who have incurred significant loss because of a failed Uponor, or RTI's 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
