Identifying Lead Water
1. Find your water meter
2. Your water meter is inside. Is it in the basement, utility room, or under the sink?
3. Find the pipe. It should be about 1 inch in diameter and enter the house from a few feet underground before connecting the water meter. You'll also see a valve on it.
4. Is the pipe plastic?
5. Scratch the pipe. Use a key or coin to scratch the pipe close to where it enters the house through the wall, Usually from a few feet underground. What color is it underneath?
6. Is the pipe hard to scratch?
7. Use a magnet. Try the magnet on it - does it stick?
