The Roman's used business lead and clay piping for potable water that serviced private homes, amphitheaters, and bathhouses throughout the Roman Contr?le. In fact lead was still the predominant metal used for drinking water services servicing homes and businesses in the US up until WW II. Lead was incredibly 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 rejected sharply after WW 2 because of the dangers of lead poisoning. There is still some equipment with regards to the harmfulness of business lead water services being used. A lot of testing was done in the past and it was found that the service calcified so quickly very little if any business lead leeched through the calcification having said that lead services are no longer employed and are still being replaced today in some of our larger older cities across the US.
