Lead Water Pipe Replacement

If your property was built before the 1970s, there’s a chance that your water supply pipe is made of lead, and you may be in need of lead water pipe replacement. Although lead pipes are no longer used for health reasons, there’s a chance that some water mains and pipes may still be made of lead. If your water main is made of lead, it’s recommended that you should consider replacing it, in order to minimise any health risks. Although the water supplier is responsible for the water main pipe and are responsible for lead water main replacement, a home owner is responsible for the water supply pipe which brings water into your home from the main in the street.
