Kitec Plumbing


Used extensively in the residential construction industry during the 1990s and early 2000s, Kitec plumbing and fittings eventually caused a variety of problems for homeowners after the plastic-coated aluminum pipes and fittings began to de-zincify. As they are leaching zinc from the brass, the fittings fail, causing leaks and burst pipes in plumbing systems all over North America.

Typically known for its colored markings—blue pipes for cold water, orange pipes for hot—Kitec pipes are marked with a number of different brand names including Kitec, PlumbBetter, WarmRite, AmbioComfort, and others. Fittings are generally marked by either the Kitec name or KTC. Electricians have also been trained to seek out the stickers that alert them to the presence of Kitec plumbing systems, as the nonmetallic plumbing material requires proper electrical grounding procedures.
