Decent water pipes will last for several decades, but do need replacing eventually. If you have old lead fittings, this should be done sooner rather than later.
Lead pipes have long been phased out due to the fact they pose health dangers, especially to babies and young children. That’s because when the pipes start to corrode, the lead can enter your drinking water. This is most likely to happen when water has high acidity or low mineral content.
Because of the health problems they cause, lead pipes have been banned since the 1970s, so you’re mostly likely to have them if you have an older property in Surrey.
What are the signs that you need a water pipe replacement in Surrey?
Evidence that your pipes need replacing might include cracks, leaks, corrosion, discoloured water and dangerous materials entering your water supply. Of course, all of these tend to happen with old age.
