A home plumbed with a Kitec® plumbing system may have a yellow or neon sticker on the inside panel of its electrical box. However, before you check, please be sure that you have experience with the location and safe use of your home’s electrical panel box. The purpose of these stickers is to alert electricians regarding proper electrical grounding procedures for
nonmetallic plumbing. Often, homes with Kitec® plumbing will have stickers tha say “Kitec” or “Plumbetter.” Thus, if you find such as sticker in your electrical panel box, it is likely that your home contains Kitec® brass fittings.
However, please be aware that stickers were sometimes used indiscriminately to warn of nonmetallic plumbing systems othere than Kitec®. It is therefore possible that your home does not contain Kitec® plumbing even if you find a yellow sticker in the electrical panel box. Similarly, many homes that contain Kitec® plumbing do not have stickers in their electrical panel boxes. Thus, if your electrical panel box does not reveal a sticker indicating that Kitec® was installed in your home, you may need to have your home inspected to determine whether it was plumbed with Kitec®.
