lead in old galvanized pipe
Posted by Laurie Homeowner on September 23, 19100 at 17:12:22:
Recently, our water softener company representative, tested our water and found that it was soft, although we still get rust stains in our sinks and bathtub. He concluded that the rust was probably caused by our old, galvanized pipes. He said that galvanized pipes used to be manufactured with a percentage of lead and suggested that we test our water for lead. Is it true that galvanized pipes were once made consistently with a percentage of lead?
