Pipe replacement services for homes with Quest piping

Quest is a type of plumbing system that was commonly installed in homes and businesses in the 1980s and early 1990s. At the time, this code-approved flexible pipe was a top seller because it was cheaply made and easy to install. Quest is most commonly found in the coastal areas of San Diego like Pacific Beach and Mission Beach.

At some point during the 90s, Quest systems began to fail. Leaky fittings were a major problem because unlike copper pipes, Quest did not require soldering fittings onto the pipe. Another major problem with Quest was sunlight. During a build, polybutylene pipes would be exposed to sunlight for days on end before installation. UV weakens polybutylene and as a result, the pipes would not last long once they were installed. Polybutylene is also weakened by chemicals like chlorine and solvents.
