The Roman's used lead and clay piping to get potable water that maintained private homes, amphitheaters, and bathhouses throughout the Roman Disposition. 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 in turn made it an ideal piping material. In fact lead wiping was considered an art form. The use of lead for potable water dropped sharply after WW 2 because of the dangers of lead poisoning. There is still some equipment with regards to the harmfulness of lead water services being used. A few testing was done in the past and it was found which the service calcified so quickly very little if any lead leeched through the calcification having said that lead services are no longer used and are still being replaced today in some of our larger elderly cities across the US.
