    Default Polybutylene

    This house was built in 1995. It has two kinds of piping, one of which is definetely PB. I was not sure about the other type. Any thoughts.

    Thanks

    That's what I thought, but I have never seen the colored stripes before.

    Vanguard Thermoguard is the brand name.

    Quest is a different brand.

    Other than that, it is not installed correctly coming off the Manoblock manifold - it is supposed to come out straight, be supported and secured, *then* make the bends.
