Frequently Asked Questions about lead in water
Is lead in drinking water more harmful to some people than others?
Yes! Children whose bodies are still in their developmental phase are particularly vulnerable to the dangers of lead in water. The younger the child, the greater the risk. As you’d expect, this means pregnant women should also be careful to avoid the risk of lead in tap water.
What are my options for lead water testing?
Depending on where you live, the city might be able to send a lead tester for water to your home. They might even provide the service for free.
If that’s not an option, Lucke Plumbing can perform a lead water test. We’ll tell you whether you’re at risk, and recommend a solution tailored to your needs, whether that’s replacing your pipes or installing a new lead water filter.
How does lead get into tap water?
Lead in tap water can occur due to pipes that are made of lead themselves, from corrosion of brass fixtures and from the solder that connects pipes underground, to name a few. We can’t see, taste or smell lead in water, so it’s best not to simply assume that you’re in the clear.
Don’t overlook the safety of your family and guests.
Your home should be a safe place. Why cross your fingers and assume all is well, when a simple lead water test can give you the peace of mind your family and loved ones deserve?
Take your first step toward that peace of mind today. Call Lucke Plumbing to schedule a water quality test and determine your next steps.
