Galvanized pipes were popular up until the 1960s because of the long life expectancy and cheap cost. Overtime the galvanized water pipes build up calcium and magnesium creating rust and corrosion on the inside of the pipe, which can lead to decreased water pressure and brown and dirty water.
Lead pipes were used for plumbing because of their sturdiness and flexibility. We have since learned the health risks that lead in drinking water poses and now we predominantly use copper pipes.
Copper pipes are now the most common pipes used for water lines. Unlike lead pipes and galvanized copper is a recyclable material and has less of an impact on the environment.
