Benefits Of Lead Pipe Replacement

Unfortunately, lead piping is commonly found in older water supply networks. This is because up until the 1970s lead piping was widely used in plumbing and water supply mains systems. If your home or business premises was built before 1970 it is very likely that some or all of your water pipes are made from lead.

Why Is Lead Piping Bad

Lead was outlawed as a material for water pipe manufacture because it can have a detrimental effect on health. There is evidence that exposure to lead can lead to many health issues. They include problems such as kidney damage, circulatory problems and even cancer. Furthermore, it can also affect brain development. The longer the exposure, the more severe the effects will be.

 

As a result, we recommend arranging pipe replacement if you suspect your property has a network of lead piping. This is because the lead in the pipework can leach into the water supply, contaminating your drinking water which in turn can pose a risk to your health.
