Are Lead Pipes an Emergency?

Monday, October 4th, 2021

Lead has been used in pipes since the days of ancient Rome. It’s a naturally occurring mineral that can easily be formed and constructed into pipe materials for homes, but there’s a big caveat to this—it’s poisonous.

The science has been in for decades and lead pipes can cause lead poisoning when freshwater is flowing through them. If you’ve got lead pipes that are transporting water to your sinks, shower, or other appliances, then you need the help of an emergency plumber in Sewell, NJ to completely replace them.

However, not all lead pipes are created equal. While old pipes should definitely be replaced by newer, more reliable ones, you might not have to worry as much about lead pipes if they’re not threatening your clean water.

Let’s talk more about the specifics below, and be sure to call our emergency hotline if your lead pipes are leaking or endangering your family.

The Hidden Perks of an Electric Furnace

And, if your home is lacking hot water, then it might be time to upgrade.
