Dux Quest piping, which is black in colour, was used heavily in properties built in the 1970s and 1980s is still in 2014 causing issues in New Zealand homes. Dux Quest was one of the first forms of plastic piping, after copper pipes that were used until the 1970s.
If you have any in your home you need to get rid of it. “When?” you ask. “Yesterday” we say.
Dux Quest piping is unreliable and riddled with issues. So much so, most insurance companies often won’t cover damage done by Dux Quest piping in your house insurance. It is notorious for splitting, along the pipes or at the plastic joins, causing leaks throughout your home. If the leak happens behind the wall and begins to rot the weatherboards and jib, you could be up for mammoth replacement costs. Why risk it?
We are only too happy to provide a detailed quote on removing all this nasty material from your home and replace with the reliable grey pipes. If a potential leak isn’t enough to have you calling us, consider this… We have had clients come to us after they have listed their property on the market for sale. Potential buyers run in the opposite direction when they see the black piping under the house or in the roof cavity. Get it sorted before it causes you any issues with either a leaky home or a barrier when trying to sell your property.
If your home was built in the 1970s or 1980s and has had no renovations since, it’s almost certain there is the nasty black s hiding under your floor. It is easy to spot; it is black in colour as opposed to grey. Give us a call, we can come and check the status of your pipes and fix a plan in place to get it out your home and in the bin!
