The Construction Defect Center is attempting to alert all US homeowners about a specific type of building product called corrugated stainless steel tubing, also known as CSST, because on July 8th 2012 the Minnesota Department of Public Safety issued the following statement, "The Minnesota Department of Public Safety is urging Minnesotans with homes built after 1989 to check for corrugated stainless steel tubing. If not properly installed, the flexible piping can be damaged by nearby lightning strikes and start a fire. As of 2010, about six million homes in the United States had CSST." The Construction Defect Center is suggesting any US homeowner, who has corrugated stainless steel tubing in their home, also known as CSST to check with a reputable local plumber, or heating, and air conditioning specialist, to make certain the product is safe, or to get the CSST replaced with something that is. At the same time, the Construction Defect Center is urging homeowners, who actually had a home fire, that was caused by a CSST failure, because of an electrical storm to call them immediately at 866-714-6466.

We became aware of this issue within the last few weeks, and thought it important to take this message nationwide. Six million homes is significant-so are the people, who live in these homes." http://ConstructionDefectCenter.Com
