Today I installed PEX water supply to an upstairs bathroom to replace some problematic old galvanized pipe. A neighbor gave me a bucket full of fittings and such from when he re-did his house. I used three Zurn Q-PEX metal tees from his stock . . . the rest of the fittings were other brands. Now I read about Zern class action suits, leaky fittings, etc. I am a bit concerned. Should I cut the tees out and replace them with something else? . . . or bury them behind drywall and sleep peacefully? (I'm thinking I could solder up some longer-armed tees from copper fittings, cut the old tees out, and put the copper ones in without having to disturb anything else.)
Was the Zurn problem related to a small batch of fittings? Has the problem been resolved in more recent production? Was the problem related to the fact that Zurn fittings were brass, rather than bronze? Any insight into the situation would be very helpful.
