Water mains

Water mains

Until the 1960's lead was used for almost all water supply pipes and although the water is treated by your local authority, small amounts of lead can find their way into the water you use. This also applies to rust from iron pipes. Drain Blitz Drainage & Plumbing can provide fully qualified tradesmen who are highly trained in their field. The types of work we undertake can range from a small repair to a total replacement of your water supply pipe. Whether you need a new service pipe for your home or a spot repair Drain Blitz can help.
