Replace lead water supply pipes in under 2 hours…no major excavations, minimal disruption with lNSUduct. 

 

Awareness of the potential health problems caused by Lead in the water supply is growing, and rapid action is required.

The only totally secure method to reduce lead in water supply is to remove or replace lead supply pipes with modem plastic pipe. Traditionally, any lead replacement program requires major excavations outside a property and causing disruption within, resulting in mess and disturbance to householders over several days and at a high unit cost.

lNSUduct is an innovative solution, minimising disturbance, time and cost.

By bringing the new water service up the external face of the building and connecting to the internal plumbing above ground level – most lead replacement operations can be completed within a couple of hours, without undue disruption to home-owners/occupiers.

INSUduct is carefully fabricated to provide long lasting and effective thermal protection to water pipes and fittings in external situations. Exceeding British Standard 5422 and all relevant Water Regulations for frost protection, lNSUduct has been used across the UK as part of lead supply pipe replacement programmes.

For more information please see the INSUduct product page here or search ‘Watersafe/lead in water’ or your local water company.

Grant aid may be available to assist lead pipe replacement programmes, contact local council offices for further information.
