Stress-Free Plumbing In Your Home
Used extensively in the residential construction industry during the 1990’s and early 2000’s, Kitec plumbing and fittings eventually caused a variety of problems for homeowners after the plastic-coated aluminum pipes and fittings began to de-zincify. Leaching zinc from the brass, the fittings began to 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.
