I'd have thought this question would have been answered many times but I checked the archives and found nothing.

How can MH pipe (grey plastic) be connected to standard PVC? The MH pipe makes for a perfect fit with regular 3/4 hot water PVC fittings but the regular PVC cement seems to have no effect on the MH pipe -- thus the connection does not hold. I checked around with the local plumbing supply and hardware stores for an answer to the question but no one has been able to offer any solutions. Does anybody have any suggestions? Allen

A "Quest" compression coupling of the correct diameter will fit PVC, polybutalene (the grey flexible stuff in a MH) or copper. They are available to fit two tubes of the same diameter or different diameters, as well as tees, valves etc. Assemble correctly, tighten well, no glue, no pipe joint compound, no teflon tape.

Best wishes,
Jerry

Try to find the white plastic Quick Connects. They compression fit onto copper or plastic and then thread together. They're designed to connect different kinds of piping together. I buy these at Hader Hardware and the mobile home supply store.

If you can't find them, here's another way. Home Depot carries brass fitting of all kinds. Find a brass barbed fitting that's threaded on the other end. Thread into a PVC threaded connector. Push the barbed end into the gray line. Compress with a metal compression ring. (This might be the one specialty item, I bought my rings and compression tool at a mobile home supply store). On the other end, glue the threaded connector onto the PVC. Voila.

This might not be the simplest way, but it will work, and that's what matters.

Couldn't remember the name. We just call them quick connects. Thanks, Jerry.

There are the white plastic ones (I've used the valves, but not the couplings of that type) that Karl is calling "Quick Connects" and there are the grey plastic ones, which are the Quest (equally quick, but a different name). When I worked in the water filtration business, my boss told me the Quest fittings are more reliable than the white plastic ones, but I have no first-hand experience that it's true. The white plastic valves I used were less expensive than the Quest valves and they were fine.

Best wishes,
Jerry

Lowes carries and has a great display of compression fittings for this purpose. if you ask them they will tell you the grey line is outlawed but they will show you how to adapt it. cut a short peice and take it with you and the salesman will hook you up with everything you need and some you don't if you are not watching.

Thanks for the info. I just bought a 1980 mobile, the propane installer told me the qest pipe was recalled.
searched the web, found official site www.pbpipe.com
Mfg dates are 1978 to July 1995. The catch is that the recall only allows 11 years to file, after installation.

... from reading the legal notice, there's no problem and no recall if the original tubing doesn't leak. And I'm sure that leaking due to freezing pipes doesn't count. My take on the situation is that there were some problems with leaks, but that the vast majority of homes are/were OK. I believe the problem was with certain kinds of fittings that the MH manufacturers used with the tubing. These are different from the fittings we're discussing here. (Just my take on this. Consult a competant attorney for a professional interpretation of the legal issues.)

Best wishes,
Jerry

You may never have a problem. The connections are the problem, in my case.

call Consumer Plumbing Recovery Center 1-800-392-7591
My mobile is a 1981 model, they told me I am not covered by the legal settlement.

If you are covered, you have to declare you had a leak.
There would be forms to fill out. Somehow a plumbing contractor would be involved, after an inspection.

I am replacing the qest grey pipe myself with QEST-PEX pipe and Flair-It fittings and connectors. ( www.flairit.com )

The Flair-It fittings are supposed to work with old grey qest pipe as well as the new thicker white/milky piping. Not CPVC.

DO NOT GLUE THE GREY QEST PIPE.
Previous owner or owners had done some repairs with glue and it came apart when I touched it.
(The mobile was in a hard-water area on well water.)

By the way, watch for snakes.
Our mobile is in Central California Sierra foothills.
I found a baby rattlesnake where I had just been working under the mobile.
Surprise!

If it ain't broke....
Again: Read www.pbpipe.com and call the 800 number for instructions.
Check the MANUFACTURED date of your mobile. 11 years back up to 1995 (approx) you are covered, if you had leaks.

A neighbor said a plumbing contractor "replaced all the pipes; Took 2 men 2 days."
This was a few years ago. My neighbors did not contact the contractor. Maybe the contractor was "working" the rebate.

If you are not covered, and have leak, you might contact:
Previous owner (did they disclose the recall? )
Home warranty provider (if you have a home warranty)
Real estate agents (did they know of recall at time of sale?)
Plumbing companies (they may have done the recall procedure for another owner)

If you have leaks, the fittings (connectors) are probably the location.

If you are physically able, the repair is simple. Cut off the leaking fitting and replace.
Get CORRECT replacement connectors (and advice!) at hardware store, plumbing supply, etc. $3 to $6 each.

Lowes has the "Female Insert" fittings and replacement pipe. Home Depot did not.
DO NOT GLUE the grey qest pipe to CVPC. This was done by previous owner(s) The glue repair has come unglued in my mobile.
DO NOT USE HOSE CLAMPS. This old repair has leaked in my mobile.

read www.flair-it.com for alternate connectors.

I have chosen to replace ALL pipe and fittings because I live in California, and if I sell my mobile, I will have to DISCLOSE any actual problems, or risk a lawsuit by future owner.

By the way, I bought my mobile from a lawyer, so I will NOT be trying to sue the previous owner for failing to disclose any problems.

Also the process of dragging the mobile up a very steep driveway on "Turkey Hill" could have shaken things up a bit and caused leaks to get worse!

We had this pipe in our mobile home, and had many leaks over the years. I aquired a serious lung condition caused by toxic mold in the insulation. We have since replaced this pipe with copper, but my lung condition still remains, with many trips via ambulance to the ER, and several hospital stays, the most recent, being 4 days in June of this year, 2 separate stays in 2001, April, and May, Several others in the previous years. We have not been able to find anyone to replace the insulation and barrier because of the piers the mobile is setting on.

We purchased our home in April of 1999 and at the time the home was 5 years old. I'm not sure that the piping is the same but if you could advise me as to the next step I should take I would greatly appreciate it.
Thank you,
Donna Black-Moore

I had gray pipe replaced on March 27th 2008 at a cost of $1300.00. Am I eligible for the 10% rebate that I heard might be available? ekeegan

I have a double wide trailer that I bought in 1989 brand new. I sent a paper in and never heard from it. I had my plummer to fill it out. Since I never heard from it I have paid for all my leaks myself . I wish I could get my pipes redone. I thought that was what they were going to do but I never heard from the pipe co. Wanda Martin

We purchased a 28 yearold mobile home from a family member who hid everything from us and there mother lived in it for 28 years and never did anything to the trailer. Can we get the plumbing and or valves especially the toilet as we have been in it for 1 year and 6 months and we want to replace all the fixtures, but can's find anything to fit the tubing except the shark bite and the qest valves. What a night mare.
