Qest Polybutylene Plumbing in San Diego

Emory Plumbing of San Diego - Trust The Man In The Yellow Van!

Qest, or polybutylene, plumbing was a popular water supply system in the 1970’s and 1980’s. Polybutylene pipe is sometimes called PB or Poly-B pipe, and is easily identifiable. It is non-rigid, usually grey but sometimes silver or black, plastic pipe. It is not PVC or CPVC, which is a rigid white or off-white plastic pipe. Sold under the popular names Qest, Thermogaurd, and Flex-Temp, it has been used in approximately six million mobile homes, apartments, houses and other structures throughout the United States.

By the late 1980’s, a significant number of PB plumbing systems began to experience problems with leaky fittings. The system was therefore discontinued, and although this type of plumbing is no longer available for new installations, Emory Plumbing carries the materials needed to repair this type of plumbing. We also have the experience needed to perform a total re-pipe or replacement of Qest systems if you would like to update your plumbing at a fair price.

Our carefully selected technicians are not only highly qualified, but also uphold the same business ethics and standards that we value and expect here at Emory Plumbing. We are a family owned and operated company that takes pride in our services. San Diegans know that when they choose Emory Plumbing the job will get done right the first time, ensuring the best overall experience for our customers.

Hydro Jetting Service Review

"I've been noticing a few yellow Emory Plumbing work vans in my neighborhood (Pacific Beach) lately, but never thought I'd be calling them! My wife was at the kitchen sink disposing of some scraps when she noticed water at her feet. She called me. I called Emory. They were at our doorstep in 15 minutes and quickly shut the water off. The leaky pipes were repaired in an hour. So glad that they were local, otherwise we'd have had some serious damage. Thank you, Carlos & Emory."
