  • i am just trying to learn as much as i can about why we are having these leaks so that i will know what is best to do at this point. where does it say that zurn qest pex pipes should not be used with hot water recirculators? i would love to read that literature. you all are so amazing and smart!

    it is not a joke. we have had 5 water leaks in our home and i suspect they are all hot water. we do have a recirculation system. was it known in 2002 that zurn qest pex should not be used with recirculation systems?

  • if the zurn qest pex piping has failed (5 leaks in one house over two years) due to high chlorine content (our water company said that the average chlorine content is 1.0 ppm (range, 0.5-1.9 ppm), then would think that there were be many more water leaks in houses in our neighborhood but there is only one other house that we know of built by the same builder as ours but they had a different plumber!

    so reasons for 5 intrinisic pipe leaks in our house could be:
    1. chlorine interacting with the pipe lining?
    2. hot water recirculator----but that shouldn't be a cause based on zurn qest info?
    3. just plain ole bad product ----- shouldn't piping be made to withstand many scenarios.

    has anyone heard of others with a similar problem? Zurn said that this is not a normal occurrence and are asking about chlorine content and about hot water recirculator and whether there is a timer on it etc. why would they be asking that?

    we have had 5 leaks from our 9 year old zurn qest pex piping in the last 2 years. What do you think the reason could be? chlorine interacting with the pipe lining? hot water recirculator (that was only an issue with copper pipes right?). ANY input would be sooo helpful. is this common?

    ? is this a joke ?

    if it is not, I stand vindicated in my opinion that PEX is, per se, garbage


    sorry for your problems with "piping" installed by someone calling themselves a plumber
