Polybutylene PB pipe is a gray plastic tubing that was commonly used as a water-supply plumbing pipe in the years between andat which time it was discontinued due to reports of pipes rupturing and causing water damage.

There are a couple of options when selecting what type of fitting to use for the transition from polybutylene. The other Play On to use a specific transition fitting designed for transitioning between two different materials. For accessible areas, push-fit fittings, often sold Play On brand names such as Sharkbite or Gatorbite, are the easiest way to make a repair.
When you find a small leak in a straight length of pipe under a mobile home or in other accessible locations, a push-on fitting can be used for a quick repair. Simply cut out the pinhole area and push on the repair coupling. Push-on shut-off valves are a good option for this repair, also.
With new flex line water-supply tubes and push-on valves, you can change the water-supply lines to a toilet or faucet in minutes. Simply shut off water to the house, remove the old flex line from the fixture, cut back the PB pipe, push on a new shut-off valve, and connect a new flex line.
Connect to the PB pipe with a push-on coupling and run the new pipe from that point. For inaccessible repairs, the best option is to use a transition coupling designed specifically to transition from polybutylene to PEX pipe.

A PB pipe or PB joint that is leaking inside a wall should be repaired by replacing the bad section with a non-PB pipe. The best solution is to use a transition coupling to convert that section to PEX. You can transition close to the leak, but if possible, follow the length of pipe and replace as much of the pipe as you can reach. When installing or replacing a shower valve or other valve inside the wall, it is best to use a transition couplings to connect a new PEX riser to the PB system, especially if there won't be an access panel.
