There are a number of simple, everyday changes that can help to reduce the impact of lead in your drinking water. It is advisable to flush your pipes before drinking and to only use cold water for cooking, drinking and baby formula. The longer the water has been standing in the pipes the more lead it may contain; this is especially true first thing in the morning. You may choose to purchase and drink bottled water or to have a special filter fitted although some particles can still pass through these filters. For further information please refer to the Drinking Water Inspectorate (DWI) or your local water authority.

Changing your lead pipes for a modern, plastic (MDPE) water supply pipe is the only guaranteed way to eliminate the risk completely and is a far more cost-effective method than other techniques such as relining the pipes with epoxy resin.
