We are fully trusted and approved to work with major utilities companies across the UK, undertaking funded lead pipe replacement work on their behalf. If your property was built before 1970 then you could be eligible too.  


We are WIAPS insurance approved lead pipe contractors

We work with several major utilities companies, including United Utilities, to effectively deliver lead pipe replacement services across the North West & UK.

If you own your property and it’s not being rented for multiple occupancy then you could be eligible for funding towards the replacement of lead pipes leading to your property.

The lead pipe replacement scheme was bought in to dramatically reduce the amount of lead pipes providing water supply to properties, due to the potential harm that this can cause to you and your family members or fellow residents.

When you have taken the time to replace your water supply to a more modern material, such as safe plastic piping, your local utility company will then usually provide funding to replace the lead old pipes leading up to your property. There are several utilities provided across the UK, with the United Utilities Scheme covering most of the North West.


Why should I apply for a scheme to replace my pipes?

Replacing your old lead pipes to a more modern, safe material is to only way to provide full peace of mind that your drinking supply is not contaminated. This is far more cost effective than other methods such as relining your pipes and in most cases funding can also be secured from your local utilities company.


How do I know if my pipes are made from lead?

If your home has been modernised since 1970 then it is unlikely your pipes are made from lead…

A reliable and easy way to check if you have lead pipes is to look behind the sink in your kitchen, finding the pipe which leads to your external stop tap (make sure you remove any paint!). Lead pipes are usually a dark grey in colour and can be easily marked.
