It would be best to replace lead water pipes in your home and your mains pipes on your property. Any pipes on your land are your responsibility, and lead pipes have many health issues related to them. However, we also repair lead pipes if you don't want them to be fully replaced, but you have another emergency such as a burst pipe.
Lead pipes were commonly found in houses built before the 1970s, as lead was cheap, easy to use and readily available. The fact that lead is poisonous was well known as far back as 2000BC, but it was believed to be safe in small amounts. Lead was used in pipework and household paints, believing it was safe. However, it wasn't until March 29, 1979, that a paediatrician named Herbert Needleman first documented the dangers of lead exposure in small amounts.
While lead was replaced by MDPE blue poly piping on modern external water pipes, some lead water pipes are still in use today.

Are lead pipes safe?
"The use of lead in water pipes has been banned since the 1970s. Exposure to large amounts of lead can be harmful to health, especially for unborn babies and young children." - Source: thameswater.co.uk
Though it is stated on the Thames water website that you may be worried about lead levels if you own an older property. However, as the water in our region is hard, limescale is likely to build up within your pipes. This helps to prevent lead from dissolving into the water. As a result, lead levels are usually low. Who knew there was a positive side to limescale?
