Lead in water lines, or actual lead water lines, pose a concern and genuine health risk. Yet many property owners put off a lead water line replacement for many years. Home ownership comes with many responsibilities and unexpected costs. So frequently removing the risk of lead in water that supplies you and your family may be put on hold. When it comes to your lead water line, many think “If it’s not leaking, don’t replace it“. But in fact putting off the replacement of a lead water line may not be the best of ideas.
With that in mind, Balkan Sewer And Water Main Service announces that July of 2016 will be “Get The Lead Out” month. Balkan has a well deserved reputation for industry leading quality, and the most reasonable rates. But as a one-time event Balkan is discounting their prices in July an additional 10% on lead line replacements. Team Balkan feels that with children out of school, and more time off from work available, July is an opportune time to remove lead in water lines for many New York City residents.
Lead in water service lines poses serious risks
It would be a foolish mistake to think that you would know if a lead water main poses a problem or not. The symptoms of lead poisoning are not all clearly evident, and there are a multitude of such symptoms. The symptoms in infants, children, and adults are vary in nature. Some of the symptoms of lead poisoning include learning difficulties, slowed growth, developmental delay, learning difficulties, irritability, loss of appetite, abdominal pain, and mood disorders, just to name a few. In some cases lead poisoning can result in miscarriage or premature birth in pregnant women.
It would seem clearly evident that the most sensible solution to all of the potential health issues is to replace the possible cause of these issues. In the outer boroughs in New York City most replacements cost between $3,000.00 to $5,000.00. Compared to the potential danger to ones health, it would seem to be a small price to pay.
