  • lead pipe???

    Has anyone ever used a leadloc fitting. I see them on the net but in the UK. I had a problem this morning at a customers house and I need one of them.

    I don't think a compression connection is allowed under the NSPC for lead is it?

    No mention on their site about being accepted for use anywhere in the USA. No endorsement by any standards organization either that I saw.

        Try a Ford Lead Pac coupling.They are used to join lead to copper water lines. Ford has a web site.

          Ty all for you help. Copper water service above ground, split at slab, chop up floor and I see lead. Have never dealt with it, not to bad though found a compression coupling at a specialty supply house.
