Homes built after 1950 are more likely to have copper service lines.
You can often identify the material used in your service line through a visual inspection at the point where the water service line enters your home. Reference this photo (PNG) to find the location.
You can scrape a small section with a coin if it is dirty or discolored. Reference this photo (PNG) for pictures of pipe material types.
Need help or still not sure? Take a picture of the service line and email it along with the service address and a City team member will get back to you.
