$99 Lead Testing in Boston & Cambridge

Is Your Drinking Water Safe for Your Family?

While Massachusetts prides itself on supplying residents with fresh, pure water straight from the Quabbin Reservoir, lead can still seep into the water through a lead service line. Additionally, lead can enter the tap water if you have lead pipes in your home or brass fixtures; pay extra attention to corroded pipes.

How to Stop Lead from Potentially Polluting Your Tap Water

Your best bet is to receive professional lead testing from Winters Home Services. However, you can still be proactive and follow some of our tips below to reduce your exposure to lead:

  • Use zero-lead plumbing fixtures
  • Always use cold, running water when cooking or drinking from the tap
  • Avoid using hot tap water when making baby formula
  • Find out if there are lead service lines connected to your house

Understanding Lead Service Lines

Unfortunately, many homes built prior to 1940 consist of a lead-based water main. While some of these have been replaced throughout the years, it’s possible that there could still be one in your home.

To determine if you have a lead pipe there are a couple of quick tricks to test it out:

  • Scratch the pipe with a key – the pipe will turn bright silver
  • Look for a connection that’s shaped like a bulb

At Winters, we strongly encourage homeowners to have their lead service line replaced.
