Why are old copper pipes sometimes harmful? I though copper was a good metal for plumbing and fixtures.

    Copper pipes are better than other pipes, as they keep the water cleaner. However, in older homes it is posible that a lead based solder was used on the pipes, and lead may be leaching into the water. If you have an older home, you may want to have the pipes examined. It is now required that lead-free solder be used.
