Homes built prior to 1960.....

Was your home built prior to 1960? You may have galvanized water supply piping. Galvanized pipes are steel pipes that have been dipped in a protective zinc coating to prevent corrosion and rust. Naturally occurring zinc is impure, so these pipes were bathed in zinc that also contained lead and other impurities. These pipes may be nearing the end of their functional life span. The built-up mineral deposits inside the pipes cause a reduction in water pressure, can pollute your home’s water, and can compromise the stability of your water supply system.
