Warranty Information


Repipe (Replumb) Warranty under the Kitec Class Action Fitting Litigation Settlement

The warranty component relating to the repipe of Class Members falls into three distinct categories (extract from the Court Approved Master Replumb Contract and also the Certificate of Completion).

Plumber Warranty (1)
Plumber warrants that all pipe and pipe fittings supplied and installed during the replumb at the residences by the plumber shall be free of failure as a result of defects in labor or installation for a period that matches the duration of the warranty provided by the manufacturer(s) of the court approved pipe and fitting replacement system and runs from the date of completion of the replumb for each residence. This warranty is for a period of 25 years provided the court approved system of CPVC or Pex is utilized. Plumber acknowledges that these warranties shall be fully transferable to all future owners of the residences.

Plumber Warranty (2)
Plumber warrants that all other work (by way of example, including paint and drywall repairs) shall be free of failure as a result of defects in material and installation for a period of two (2) years from the date of completion of the replumb for each residence. Plumber acknowledges that these warranties shall be fully transferable to all future owners of the residences.

Manufacturer’s Warranty
All warranties provided by the manufacturer(s) of the pipe and pipe fittings used by the plumber for the replumb runs concurrent to, and in addition to, the plumber’s warranty as outlined above.

The majority of the replumbs performed under the umbrella of the Class Settlement were completed by six (6) primary court approved contractors. An additional nine (9) contractors were approved by the Court in the event of any volume driven requirements. All nine (9) performed a small number of replumbs on a test basis to ensure performance and quality requirements were met. During the life of this Class, some of the Court approved plumbing contractors have either gone out of business or have filed bankruptcy – in those cases, the Plumber Warranties (1) and (2) above are now null and void, but the Class Member still has an opportunity to file a warranty claim against the manufacturer IF it can be proven that the leak was as a result of a product failure. A workmanship failure at the time of the replumb is NOT covered by the manufacturer. See manufacturer contact information below.

Manufacturer Warranty:

CPVC Manufacturer
CPVC was used initially in 2009 by Delta Mechanical and Plumbing Express but then both contractors quickly switched to Uponor Pex. There are a number of manufacturers of Flowguard Gold CPVC pipe and the only way to know the origin of the pipe would be to see what is stamped on the pipe. The most likely suppliers would have been Charlotte Pipe or Bow.
