Do you own an older home? Do you know what kind of pipes your plumbing system uses? If your home was built in the, 1960s or before, your home may contain galvanized iron or steel pipes. Here are some reasons why you should replace those pipes as soon as possible:
Lead exposure: Galvanized pipes can slowly corrode over time, allowing lead to possibly accumulate in your pipes. Galvanized pipes can continue to hold and release lead into your drinking water, long after any other source of lead has been removed.
