Our network of water mains isn’t made of lead, so there’s virtually no lead in the drinking water that leaves our treatment works. But if you have a lead pipe feeding your property or in your internal plumbing, small amounts of lead may dissolve into your water.
If your house was built after 1970 or has had all its pipework replaced after this time, it’s unlikely to contain lead.
If you’re replacing your lead pipe, we’ll arrange for the replacement of any lead piping that belongs to us free of charge.
If you’re planning to replace your part of a lead supply pipe within the next three months, please let us know by completing our application form.
