The Roman's used business lead and clay piping with regards to potable water that maintained private homes, amphitheaters, and bathhouses throughout the Roman Disposition. In fact lead was still the predominant metal used for drinking water services servicing homes and businesses in the US up until WW II.

The use of business lead for potable water declined sharply after WW 2 because of the dangers of lead poisoning.
