We was called out out of hours due to a burst pipe in faversham. The customer needed emergency repair work. On arrival we could here the leak was major and under a concealed floor. Access was then cut in the chipboard flooring to access the pipe work this was in the hallway so access to the front door would of been dangerous if this leak was not rectified quickly. After the pipe work was exposed we then discovered the pipe work was made of lead repairing lead is a different procedure to copper. The customer was advised to replace the whole water supply pipe as the material was lead drinking water can now not pass through lead and the material is weak due to the age. The customer opted not to replace the pipe so a one meter repair was carried out to stop the leak the was done with two 15mm – 21mm universal transition couplings and a one meter section of blue upvc water supply pipe. This was then tested and the water was turned on and the water that was lost was cleaned up and floor board was re instated so access to the front door was easy and safe.
