Is There Lead in Your Water?

Lead in your drinking water is a recipe for disaster. It builds up over time, often leading to serious and permanent health conditions. Older pipes, fittings, and lead service lines can all cause lead to leech into water supplies. But, how do you know if there is lead in your plumbing? Here are a few ways to check:

  • Have Your Water Tested: This is perhaps the easiest way to determine if there is lead in your water supply. You can purchase an at-home kit or hire a professional if you are unsure about the process. The EPA produces fact sheets about water quality and testing that can help you get started.
  • Stay Informed: All water supply companies are required by the EPA to produce an annual Consumer Confidence Report (CCR) detailing water quality. This should give you an idea if any detected lead is coming from inside or outside of your home. If your water supply comes from a private well, know the common contaminants in your area that could get into your water. Check with local health officials for more information.
  • Look for Certified Plumbing Products: Regulations dictate how much lead can be in plumbing materials. Products that meet or exceed these guidelines can receive certification with an accredited certification company. Any plumbing fixtures that have been certified will carry one of their trademarks, so look for them on your fittings and fixtures.
  • Keep Your Family Safe: Lead can cause health conditions and complications even at low levels. It is particularly dangerous for children and pregnant women. Stay informed about the water quality in your home, and make sure you know if there is lead in your plumbing.

Common Sources of Lead

Lead exposure can have lifelong consequences. Some areas in your home or business may have lead without you realizing it.

Lead can be found in:

  • Artificial turf or AstroTurf
  • Dust in attics and crawlspaces
  • Pipes
  • Paint and coatings
  • Places where gasoline used to be stored

It is always better to be safe than sorry – if you suspect that lead might be present anywhere on your property, call our team. We can conduct a safe and thorough inspection to determine where the lead is located and how best to remove it.
