NO AMOUNT of lead exposure is safe.

Lead Exposure can lower IQ, lead to behavioral problems, cause heart disease and even lead to death.

Lead (Pb) Pipes are not the only potential source of elevated lead levels in your drinking water.

Many people think that because they do not have lead pipes in their plumbing system that they do not have to worry about the risks of lead poisoning from contaminated drinking water, but that is not the case. Homes built before 1988, and plumbing fixtures installed prior to 2014 may contain lead which can leach into your property’s drinking water.

Lead Contributors, such as lead solder and some brass fixtures, can elevate lead levels in drinking water to exceed the current EPA guideline of 15ppb. Read more.

Sellers and Realtors agree - Test your property for lead as part of the selling process

Under existing law, a seller or lessor of a dwelling could potentially have an obligation to disclose lead or copper in the dwelling’s water supply, and could potentially be liable for rescission and/or damages for failure to disclose.
