We at ZeroWater are here to educate you on the negative health effects of lead in your water and how you can safeguard you and your family against lead.

How does Lead get into My Tap Water?

Many older water pipes (those made and installed before 1970) were made from lead, so lots of properties in the UK contain lead piping. These pipes serve to deliver the mains water supply into and around the house. As these pipes age and corrode Lead can seep into and contaminate your tap water.

What are the Detrimental Health Effects of Lead in our Tap Water?

If enough lead builds up in the body over time due to ingestion of lead contaminated water, you could suffer from lead poisoning. The brain is particularly vulnerable to lead poisoning as the lead interferes with the normal development, therefore, those most at risk are infants and children as it can lead to an harmful impact on their mental development as they grow up.

As the lead builds up in the body you can experience adverse symptoms such as:

  • Abdominal pain;
  • Nausea;
  • Muscle pain;
  • Depression;
  • A loss of appetite.

These effects can vary from minor to sever depending on the concentration of lead in your water. You need to protect yourself and your children from the health risks of lead in your drinking water. We at ZeroWater are here to help you defend yourself and your family from lead poisoning.
