Video: How old are average tap water pipes?

Did you guess right? đź‘€

The average tap water pipe in LA is 50 years old and the average age of a tap water pipe in the US is 45 years old. Meaning that even if your water is "pristine clean" if it's traveling through these old pipes, it picks up contaminants like rust, lead, and micro plastics.

It unfortunately costs a hefty amount to update and replace tap water pipes. It is estimated to cost New York City 1.35 billion dollars to replace all of their lead service lines which is why upgrades don't happen often. 

This is your sign to take matters into your own hands and protect your skin and health today!
