To Prevent PVC Pipes Bringing Toxic Lead To Our Drinking Water

We all expect our drinking water to be clean and safe, but a new article reveals that PVC drinking water pipes may be carrying an unwanted contaminant into our precious drinking water: toxic lead.  Yes, the very same lead that can permanently damage the brain.

The story, reported in Plastics News, found that lead stabilizer is used in PVC piping! The article revealed that  lead is still widely used in vinyl pipes, including those used in drinking water.  China banned the use of lead in PVC pipe 7 years ago.  But a lot of Asian coutries still allow lead stabilizers in the market.   


The article reports that:

Lead is used in 95 percent of PVC pipe in India, 86 percent in the Middle East and Africa, and 61 percent in South America, according to figures from German stabilizer maker Baerlocher GmbH, presented at the conference.

In Europe, by contrast, 29 percent of all PVC pipe systems use lead, while in North America, the figure is less than 1 percent, because nearly 100 percent of vinyl pipe systems use tin as a stabilizers, Baerlocher said.”
