Replacing your lead pipes

The surest way to protect yourself and your family against the health risks from lead water pipes is to get them replaced by a plumber.

Don’t forget that you are responsible for all pipes on your property – including internal pipes and the underground supply pipe which connects your home to the public water mains.

You can find your nearest qualified and quality assured plumber via the watersafe website

If you need to replace your water supply pipe - which is the pipe which brings water into your home from our water main in the street - we can connect up your new pipe for free, once your plumber has installed it. We’ll also replace any remaining lead pipe beyond your property boundary.

Our factsheet explains more about this scheme and you can apply online.
