Polybutylene Supply Piping

Like many other garden-style apartment communities built in the 1980’s-1990’s, Mission University Pines suffered from defective polybutylene piping, often causing unwanted leaks in resident’s homes. SageWater was hired to perform our One Call Repipe, replacing the faulty polybutylene pipes with more corrosion-resistant CPVC and reinstalling the affected drywall and paint. Most units were completed in 3 to 4 days in total, without residents having to move out during the process.

We were having leaks across the property at Mission University and decided a repipe was our best course of action. SageWater came highly recommended so we chose them to complete our project. Overall, the project went great and was completed ahead of schedule. I was particularly impressed by how well all the crew members worked together as a team. Overall they did an excellent job!
