Why might my service line need to be replaced?

Lead can enter drinking water from lead pipes or lead-based solder on water pipes. This can occur when pipes containing lead corrode, especially where the water is acidic or has low mineral content. Homes built before 1986 are more likely to have lead pipes, fixtures, and solder.
