Kitec Piping Systems were widely used in plumbing in the mid 1990’s to late 2000’s. Unfortunately, this type of pipe and fittings were recalled due to their quick deterioration. Thousands of homes have experienced flooding which eventually led to a class action lawsuit. What home and property owners are finding now is that they are no longer covered for water damage if they have Kitec pipes since the claim deadline was January 9, 2020.
What’s more, there are hundreds of thousands of buildings across Canada that still need Kitec Pipe Replacements to avoid the risk of catastrophic damage. This adds extra pressure on Strata’s for emergency Kitec restoration costs so the building remains insured.
