    You guys know that the city will test your water, right? For free. Now, how quickly people will decide they don't believe the results is a different issue, but the city dropped off a test kit. We followed the instructions and the city picked it up. We got our results about five weeks later.

    By the way, we were not close to the EPA's limits. We also only tested one faucet. Theoretically you could be getting lead from the fixture, which is why these CPS tests are talking about specific sinks in rooms, and not the building.

  • Wazzup not available

    let's see - we test the water - find lead - then we replace all the pipes. the building owners are going to love this - maybe that is what killed my Grandpa.
