In many of the older communities in the State of Wisconsin, lead lined pipes were used to bring water to the home. In these older homes, once inside the home, most homeowners have converted the pipes to some more up to-date pipe like copper or CPVC. The debate will go on for many years to determine the best and most cost effective way to address this problem. However, as this discussion lingers on, homeowners and their residents, will continue to drink water that is flowing through lead lined pipes. Lead pipes are no longer used to bring water to the home. Buying a new home might be the best way to make sure your family is drinking the safest water possible.
