There are a couple of class action settlements that relate to polybutylene plumbing. The one that deals specifically with plastic fittings is handled by the Spencer Class Facility. Check out their web site at www.spencerclass.com. This settlement currently offers a 10% reimbursement of the total replacement cost. You can contact the Spencer Class Facility at 1-800-490-6997.
The most popular settlement was formed by Shell Oil and is administrated by the Consumer Plumbing Recovery Center in Plano, TX. This is the settlement that offers a 100% free replacement if approved. You can contact the CPRC at 1-800-356-3496 and have a look at their web site at www.pbpipe.com. Keep in mind that both of these settlements very have strict timelines that will determine whether or not you will qualify! My best suggestion is not to hesitate and take immediate action.
