    "Mains water pipes would only need to be changed if it is lead or if there is a leak"

    "Not sure what you mean? Are you referring to the LEAD pipe coming into the house or are you talking about turning off your stop cock ?."

    "Consider exchanging your water supply pipe if you are suffering with low water pressure, have or had a burst pipe as it will reoccur. Have a current lead or galvanised steel water pipe as both of these materials become rotten over the years."

    "If you have a lead water main it is a good idea to remove and renew normally with a blue 25ml plastic pipe"

    "Ideally to the internal stop cock. Unless you are renewing the main line then you would need an accessible working external stop tap"

    "You should remove the water line if it is in lead due to lead poisoning , or if your water pressure is poor so renewing the main to plastic will more than likely increase the pressure"

    "You haven't provided enough information to give a sensible answer?
    Presumably, you are referring the 'water main' feeding your house?
    Perhaps you can provide more detail what is you want to do it and why."
