Relief available for property owners with defective Kitec piping


There is some relief available for commercial, industrial and residential property owners who have recalled Kitec piping installed, writes Toronto condominium lawyer Deborah Howden in a recent issue of Lawyers Weekly.

“In the real estate and construction industries, ‘Kitec’ is a bad word and not just your run-of-the-mill dirty word,” she writes. “In plumbing, Kitec is the dirtiest, most cursed word of them all, and for good reason: Kitec piping is inherently defective and will prematurely fail, say most experts. The failure is sometimes catastrophic. Simply put, Kitec piping is a ticking time bomb.”

Howden, partner with Shibley Righton LLP, writes that the defective piping was installed in approximately 292,000 properties across North America between 1995 and 2007.
