‘Kitec’, it’s going to spell disaster.

KITEC PLUMBING POSES A RISK TO YOUR ENTIRE BUILDING

Was your Toronto-area condominium building built between 1995 and 2007? There may be a ticking time bomb behind your walls: Kitec plumbing.

Kitec plumbing was recalled in 2005 after engineers found it was susceptible to accelerated corrosion and unable to withstand water at a high temperature. Industry experts have found that rather than simply leak, Kitec plumbing is likely to burst, causing costly flood damage. 

Unlike copper piping, however, there is no band-aid solution to faulty Kitec plumbing—it must be replaced. Let Rikos defuse that ticking time bomb in your building. Our expert technicians will replace Kitec plumbing in your domestic high-rise with Uponor PEX piping and Type L copper.

DON’T PUT OFF THE INEVITABLE

Kitec plumbing is easily identifiable due to its bright colour scheme: Typically, bright blue for cold water and orange for hot water. It is often labelled ‘Kitec’, ‘Kitec XPA’, but was also marketed under several other brands.

Even if Kitec has yet to cause a catastrophe in your building, it is already causing you grief. As of 2016, Ontario’s real estate association declared that Kitec be listed on sellers’ property information statements, gouging the value of thousands of units across the Greater Toronto Area. Prospective condo buyers may extend drastically low offers to combat the impending replacement cost, or worse yet—they may simply walk away.
