Is it expensive to change lead pipes?2023-07-27T11:21:47+00:00

When considering the cost of changing below-ground lead water supply pipes which you as the property owner are responsible for, there are additional factors to take into account. Replacing below-ground lead pipes involves excavation and underground work, which can contribute to the overall cost.

Pipeline Services, a reputable company specialising in water supply services, offers professional assistance in replacing below-ground lead water supply pipes. Their expertise in underground pipe replacement ensures a thorough and efficient process.

The cost of changing below-ground lead pipes will depend on various factors, the most important things being the length and depth of the pipes, the complexity of the pipe network, and the specific site conditions. Excavation and trenching requirements, along with specialised equipment for underground work, can also influence the cost. However when it comes to water supply pipe replacement, rather than digging trenches, the trenchless technology we utilise offers a modern and effective solution

For an accurate cost estimate tailored to your specific project and for further information, it is recommended to contact Pipeline Services directly. Our team of experts can assess the scope of work, evaluate the underground pipe network, and provide a detailed quote considering factors such as excavation, materials, labour, connecting to the water mains via the communication pipe and any additional services required.

While the cost of changing below-ground lead water supply pipes may vary, it is important to prioritize the health and safety of your water system. Below-ground lead pipes can contaminate the water supply and pose significant health risks. Replacing them with non-toxic alternatives is crucial for ensuring clean and safe drinking water for your household.
