Frequently Asked Questions

Lead water pipes are dangerous because lead can dissolve into the water and be ingested. This can lead to serious health problems, especially for young children, pregnant women, and elderly people. Lead pipes were commonly used in plumbing until the mid-20th century but have since been replaced with safer materials like copper and plastic.

Your local water company usually provides funding to support you in replacing your lead pipes. In some cases this can also be paid directly to approved contractors.

It is only properties built before 1970 which are likely to have lead pipes. We have put together a useful guide on how to check for lead pipes. The main steps are:


  1. Go to your kitchen sink and open the cupboards to reveal the pipes.
  2. Find the pipe leading to the internal stop tap, which connects your property to the mains water supply.
  3. Look at the pipe, if it’s dark grey under any paint then it’s likely to be made from lead.
  4. If you’re unsure, lead can be easily marked with another metal object to test.
  5. If still not 100%, then we’d recommend asking a plumber or cross referencing against images available if you search online. As a precaution it’s always best to ask an expert.

The majority of lead pipe replacements can be complete within a day.

This is again dependent on the size of your project, but this can start from around £550 + VAT. Funding is also usually available from your water supplier.

We offer lead pipe replacement services across the Northwest of England. This includes Wirral, Cheshire, Liverpool, Merseyside and Greater Manchester.
