I just found out about the North American recall on kitec, sweet so glad I re piped my homes domestic water system in it 8 years ago. Has anyone had any failures in hydronic systems in the Denver metro area? I have many systems in this town with this product. Thanks for any feed back. Mars

    the issues

    and lawsuits dating back to 2006 had to do with fitting failures, dezincification of the high lead content brass, as I understand it. Nevada and Washington state seemed to be the areas where lawsuits started.

    I do get pictures of the tube failures from time to time. It either shows delaminating or bubbling inside. Like Entran it seems to be limited to certain batches of the tube?

    I don't see installation or handling being the cause? Product or manufacturing glitches?
