Enjoy the benefits of a new water supply
Modern water supply pipes have many advantages over the old lead pipework that they replace. Modern MDPE pipework is not only very strong but its also flexible and very durable. It also commonly has a much larger internal bore diameter allowing for higher flow rates – often instantly solving issues with showers cutting out and slow filling of bathtubs and basins.
Lead pipes were in common use until 1970, and we often find them even in houses that have been renovated extensively after that time with the old lead supply simply soldered onto the modern copper pipe like in the photo opposite! Even when a house has been completely re-plumbed, we often find the underground pipe that links the water main to your home has never been upgraded.
Because we always tell let you know when we spot old lead pipes or other potential health issues it means that you can have peace of mind knowing that when our work is done the water coming out of your taps will be purer and of better quality.
