Why Replace Lead Pipes?
We Replace Lead Pipes in Toronto & GTA
Lead pipe replacement is now gaining much more attention in the water supply systems of many developed countries in the world. In the US and Canada, the use of lead pipes in construction work is getting limited by the day. This is because there now abounds a wealth of evidence pointing to the dangerous effects of lead in drinking water. Extended exposure to lead is known to cause brain and respiratory system damage.
These effects are some of the reasons why the use of lead for supply pipes are currently prohibited in many Canadian cities.
This substance has been in our water supply system for many years due to its high resistance to chemical substances, but the lead itself is the problem. Lead gradually washes off into the water we consume, and has a peculiar ability of being able to bypass some old modeled water purification methods such as boiling.
The effects of lead on human health are widely researched and confirmed. This is the reason why many cities in Canada, including Toronto now have legislation in place which bans the use of lead for water supply lines. This has also prompted the city authorities to plan a gradual, progressive replacement of the underground lead supply lines which are used by many homes today.
The city authority has vowed to remove any underlying lead supply piping whenever they engage in renovation work. The city authority also advises the home and commercial building owners to change their lead piping to other modern plastic options as this is harmless to human health.
Based on the above efforts by the city of Toronto it is necessary for you to consider getting on the train of developing your physical health. Make use of this initiative today and bring out all unhealthy pipes from underneath, and around your surrounding water supply system. This ensures you and the people around you stay healthier and live a much happier life.

What Pipes to use in Replacing Supply Lines?
Lead Pipe Alternatives we Frequently Install
In modern building construction, few types of supply line pipes are approved to be safe for transmitting drinking water. This is because most of the previously used piping systems have been discovered to be hazardous for use, or have fallen down the pecking order. These pipes are proven to be durable enough for replacing old and dangerous lead pipes. Here are the approved pipe types you can use for your lead pipe replacement.
Polyvinyl Chloride - the polyvinyl chloride pipe is more suitable for in-house piping replacement. The PVC pipe is made with lightweight materials and does not transmit residue of any kind into water. This is a safe pipe for your drinking water supply into your home.
Chlorinated Polyvinyl Chloride - the C-PVC pipe is a hardened upgrade to the polyvinyl chloride, and can be used for long distances without any issues. They are also efficient in transporting drinking water from the supply line to your home and commercial building without any issues whatsoever. This pipe is recommended for use in more modern buildings as they are proven to last many decades without any issues.
Fixing your supply line could take a day or less, but this is wholly dependent on the technique your plumber uses or the one you choose. To save more time for you and your plumbing technician, allow the plumber to select the best replacement option for you that saves your time and money.

It is very important to heed the advice of the city authority and start off the procedure to change your underground and surface lead pipes.

In the event that the lead piping is only above surface in your area, then a permit is not needed.
