Caption: Lead mains water pipe in a Victorian house, in the UK. Lead piping was used for water pipes because it was capable of being extended, shaped and deformed without cracking. Lead is now known to cause health hazards such as stillbirth and infant mortality. It is illegal to use lead solder or pipes in systems used for driking water in the UK.
