Avoid serious water damage with the Kitec® piping review & replacement process.
It is not uncommon for the test of time to dictate a change in the way things are done. When innovations come about, even with extensive testing, it cannot be known how they will perform in the long term. Between 1995 and 2007, Kitec® pipes and fittings were the materials of choice because they were more affordable than copper. Unfortunately, later they were found to not be the long-lasting solution that they were intended to be and they are no longer used in GTA construction or renovations.
While you do not have to worry about the dangers of premature failure with a newer building as these materials would not have been used, if you have an older one, we recommend that you call us at Belanger Engineering to learn about the Kitec® piping review & replacement process. Since the brass alloy fittings in Kitec® piping goes through a dezincification process where the zinc dissolves, your business could be at risk of extensive flooding should the pipes split open unexpectedly. Our team can determine if you have Kitec® piping and recommend the appropriate solution, if necessary. Our part of the Kitec® piping review & replacement process is the initial inspection and the engineering services related to the replacement of the system.
If your building was constructed between 1995 and 2007, we urge you to contact us to get started with the Kitec® piping review & replacement process. Our goal is to assist you with preventing serious water damage that could prove far costlier to resolve than being proactive. Call today to schedule your piping review appointment.
