What is Kitec?

Kitec® is a brand of plastic piping used in hot and cold water supplies to plumbing fixtures, and in heating systems with boilers. 

It was made from 1995 to 2007. 


  • won’t just leak, but are quite likely to burst causing a flood.
  • dark spots and/or blisters forming on the pipe.


Issue and Problems

  • contains high levels of zinc, resulting in corrosion and weakness over time.
  • Has leaks, water damage to the home, clogging, poor water pressure and flow.

  • Pipes cannot take heat and deteriorate causing pipes to burst.
  • Zinc oxide forms in fittings and causes blockages in the pipes that result breakage.


  • Most of the piping is either bright orange or blue
  • Some was made in lots of different colors and distributed as different brands. 
  • check out in the area around the hot water tank or in the mechanical room where the pipe connects or exits the walls. 
  • You’ll also be able to find them in bathrooms as well, under the sinks.
  • Fittings are stamped clearly with Kitec or KTC.
