The Roman's used business lead and clay piping for the purpose of potable water that maintained private homes, amphitheaters, and bathhouses throughout the Roman Empire. In fact lead was still the predominant metal used for water services servicing homes and businesses in the US up until WW II. Lead was extremely flexible and extremely durable which will made it an ideal piping material. In fact lead wiping was considered an art form. The use of lead for potable water decreased sharply after WW II because of the dangers of lead poisoning. There is still some hot debate with regards to the harmfulness of lead water services being used. A few testing was done in the past and it was found the service calcified so quickly very little if any business lead leeched through the calcification having said that lead services are no longer applied and are still being replaced today in some of our larger more mature cities across the US.
