Lead in drinking water is a recognised health concern. There are no lead water mains in Ireland, however, service connections within properties can contain traces of lead. The vast majority of lead pipes are contained within properties built up to and including the 1970's. Whether you have lead pipes or fittings depends on the age of your property and your existing pipes and/or pipe fittings.
