I sent several samples and they said they were not faulty and the pipes were destroyed with testing. I still have a full box of them. Then they said they can't provide warranty because we repiped (so why did they ask for pipes to test if they cant?). We had emailed them and called and left voicemails and no one got back to us so we repiped. I figured a smaller (not insignificant one albeit) was better then an insurance claim on top of still having to eventually repipe.Seems like a lot of people with this problem come from the greater Atlanta area.
There must be a common denominator because Atlanta is over represented far more than mere coincidence can possibly explain.
Could it be water? A single large plumbing contractor who did all these installations and mishandled the pipe? A large plumbing material supplier in the Atlanta area that mishandled the pipe? More than one Uponor production facility and a specific one feeding your area??
Frustrating to not know why some Uponor pipe fails and most pipe doesn't, but the other common thread here is that the few who do experience a leak don't get just one leak (which would be an aberration) but a dozen or more. Makes no sense.
Did you keep any sections of the failed pipe? If requested, I would send Uponor a sample but not ALL of it..
