ZURN PEX BRASS PLUMBING FITTINGS MAY FAIL FROM DEZINCIFICATION AND MAY CAUSE DAMAGE TO YOUR SAN MATEO COUNTY HOME
The Zurn PEX plumbing system was a new system that used plastic piping with brass pipe fittings to connect the pipes together. The system has been installed in many houses over the last seven years and the company has reportedly sold over 139 million of these systems. Some of the benefits to the PEX system is that it is significantly cheaper than brass pipes, and are much easier to handle. The plastic plumbing also prevents lime and mineral build up, as well as freeze damage resistance. Does your home have the Zurn PEX system, and has it failed, causing water damage to your home?

The brass fittings in the PEX system may fail because of something called “dezincification”, which means that the brass is stripped of its corrosion-resistant capability, and can cause the fittings to leak. Some of these leaks are very slow drips, which can be hidden from the homeowner and can result in mildew and mold. Other leaks can be full on gushers, which fill the rooms of the house with water, and can cause water damage that way. These leaks can affect your family’s livelihood and health.
Problems with the PEX brass fittings can have short and long term side effects, including an increase in insurance premiums and the time and effort that it takes to resolve the problem. The company originally honored the warranty claims, but has since stopped honoring any warranty claims for the brass fitting system. Having a problem like this affect your home and family can be detrimental, and if this has happened to you, then you should call the lawyers of The Rudman Law Firm, APC now at 1-800-252-9776 (1-800-ALAWPRO) for a free consultation with a knowledgeable attorney.
