Hidden leaky pipes spring massive bills for homeowners
You may have heard of Dux Quest pipes, an issue that has been discussed on news shows in recent years.
They were eagerly installed in most houses built during the late 1970s or the 1980s. However, it was later discovered that Dux Quest pipes have a major flaw – they are prone to springing leaks!
Simply patching up the problem may seem like the obvious solution, right? But there’s not a lot of point in doing that since new leaks will just keep popping up again and again. I’d love to be able to give you a simple solution if you do have Dux Quest pipes, but the sad reality is that you’ll probably end up having to replace your house’s plumbing system.
Could you have Dux Quest pipes?
These distinctive black pipes are, even now, still present in tens of thousands of houses. It has become a major headache for insurance companies, who over the years have come to understand how extensive the problem is. Owners of houses built during the late 1970s – 1980s are seeing their insurance prices rise as a result.
Do you know what’s even scarier? If an insurance company is aware that your house has Dux Quest piping, then many of them won’t foot the bill for any plumbing leaks that spring up. That’s because Dux Quest is already known to be such a potential hazard.
So imagine your pipes spring a leak, causing water damage to your house. You might end up having to cover that repair bill with the money out of your own pocket, and then spend thousands to replace your house’s plumbing system! How many people can afford that?
It’s important to get a property inspection, which can tell you if the house has any clear signs of Dux Quest pipes.
