One of the most important considerations families should keep in mind if they have lead solder or lead pipes in the home is that lead will actually leech into standing water. What this means for most homeowners with lead piping or solder is that water that is left standing overnight (in the water pipes) will often have very high levels of lead in it first thing in the morning. If you get up in the morning and fill your coffee pot or make your baby formula without first allowing the water to flow into the drain, you may be giving your family a very high dose of lead. By allowing the water to flow to waste for a minute or so, you can help flush out the lead that has accumulated overnight. It is important to do this with all faucets that provide water that might be ingested ie, kitchen and bathrooms.
