Lead Water Main Replacement

There are a number of easy ways to check to see whether your pipe is made out of lead. The first can be done by examining the pipe that runs from the outside of your home to your stop tap, which is generally found under the kitchen sink or in a downstairs toilet. If the pipe is a distinctive dark grey colour, which is soft to the touch and can be easily marked, then you have a lead pipe.

However, if you do discover that the majority of your pipes are copper, you’re not out of the woods just yet. As we have already mentioned, if you know that your home was built before 1970 then there’s a significant chance that your supply pipe could still be made of lead, and you will be in need of lead water pipe replacement.

If you’re unsure whether you have lead pipes, you can get a second opinion from one of our expert plumbers in order to confirm whether you’re in need of a lead water pipe replacement or not.

If you discover that you’re in need of a lead water pipe replacement, our Contracts Manager will come to your property free of charge, in order to carry out a small site survey and give you a fixed quotation price. After this site visit, we will then mobilise a crew to your property in order to ensure that the lead water pipe replacement is carried out immediately.

Also, if you’re hoping to get rid of any traces of lead that you believe might still be in your pipes, then we’ll be more than happy to carry out some additional excavation services to ensure your water supply is completely uncontaminated.
