NJ Lead Pipe Replacement Experts

NJ lead pipe replacement is the process of replacing existing lead pipes with new pipes made of safer and more durable materials. Lead pipes are a serious concern because they can contaminate drinking water and cause a range of health problems, particularly for children and pregnant women. Here are the steps involved in NJ lead pipe replacement:

  • Inspection: A licensed plumber inspects the existing pipes to determine if they are made of lead and if they need to be replaced.
  • Permitting: The necessary permits are obtained from the local municipality before the replacement work can begin.
  • Excavation: The area around the existing pipes is excavated to expose the pipes. This may involve digging a trench in the yard or driveway.
  • Removal: The existing lead pipes are removed using excavation equipment or other tools.
  • Installation: New pipes made of safer and more durable materials, such as copper, PVC, or PEX, are installed in their place. This involves laying the new pipes, connecting them to the municipal water supply, and installing new shut-off valves and meters.
  • Testing: After the new pipes are installed, they are tested to ensure that they are working properly and do not leak. Water quality tests may also be conducted to ensure that the new pipes are providing safe and clean water.
  • Restoration: The area around the work site is restored to its previous condition. This may involve backfilling the excavation site and repairing any damage to sidewalks, roads, or landscaping.

NJ lead pipe replacement is a necessary step in ensuring safe and clean drinking water. It is important to work with a licensed and experienced plumber who can assess the situation and recommend the most effective and least disruptive solution for your specific needs. Regular maintenance and inspections can also help prevent lead contamination and other water quality issues from occurring in the first place.
