The name "Plumber" originates from the latin word, Plumberium, which means "worker of lead". Lead has been used for a long time because of his resistance to corrosion. If your property was built before 1970 and have never had any pipe work replaced, you may have lead pipes throughout your property. These could be pipes used for your heating system or plumbing within the property; they are a dull grey colour.
