Dux Quest Pipes in Lower Hutt or Wellington area | Watersmith Plumbing and Gas
Do you have Dux Quest piping in your Lower Hutt or Wellington home?
Dux Quest is a discontinued style of black plastic piping used in houses in New Zealand in the late 70's, postdating copper pipes.
Dux Quest was withdrawn from the market a number of years ago after hundreds of faults were reported.
Dux Quest is notorious for splitting, particularly around the joins, and is pretty much made of pure fail!
It doesn't matter if Dux Quest pipes are in your walls, ceiling or underfloor, when they crack they'll spray water over whatever is near, making a big mess.
If you have Dux Quest in your home you need to get rid of it. If it hasn't already failed, it will be about to fail.
Often insurance companies won’t cover damage done by Dux Quest piping, especially if it has leaked before.
