Lead Replacement

Properties constructed before building regulation legislation was passed in 1969 to ban the use of lead in water supplies. Lead would have commonly been used in and around the property because it was flexible yet robust.

It is now known that exposure to lead should be minimised because of the dangers to health. 

Replacement of lead water supplies must comply with the Water Supply (Water Fittings) Regulations 1999 act. It is the legal responsibility of the owner / occupier to employ a recognised and approved engineer. 

KCS will ensure that all regulations are met and will not have any impact to the water quality.

Other commonly used water supply pipe materials are copper, which is bright or dull brown in colour and quite hard; galvanised iron, which is dark brown, very hard and may have some rusty deposits around it; and plastic, which can be blue or black.
