Residential Pipe Corrosion

  • Tests for metals that are in the water from degrading pipe in homes
  • Corrosive (usually soft) water can cause pipe to deteriorate and dissolve toxic metals into the drinking water.
  • Refrigerated water and ice dispensers utilize a lot of copper pipe. The copper levels in ice and water can reach very high levels.
  • Hot taps plumbed in at a sink are often plumbed with metal pipe and these can contain very elevated levels of metals such as copper from the plumbing lines.
  • Waters containing elevated levels of sodium (salt) can corrode metal plumbing also.
  • There are two ways to sample for this package, depending on what type of information you want:
    1. Highest Level of Metals in the Drinking Water 
    Sample 1st water out of the tap after the water has been sitting in the lines for at least 6 hours. This could be 1st thing in the morning before any water in the house has been run, or when a person gets home from work. 
    2. Level of Metals After Water Has Been Run at Least 5 minutes 
    This records what the levels of metals are after a short run time; answers the question regarding whether a short run time would reduce any metals that might possibly be present in the water.
