G&R Kelly is extremely skilled, knowledgeable, and efficient at replacing lead water lines. We are proud to be a local family owned company operating since 1969, and are able to help local home owners replace their lead water lines and relieve any stress involved in the process.
Halifax and Dartmouth homes built before 1950 are most likely to have lead water service lines which are hazardous to your health. The municipal drinking water distributed is essentially lead free until it reaches individual homeowners service line. Lead leaches into water through the corrosion of metal service lines. There are approximately 10,000 – 15,000 homes that still have lead service line connections in the older neighborhoods of the HRM.
Replacing all these individual lead service lines is a major endeavor which requires a joint effort on behalf of the home owner’s and Halifax Water. Halifax Water has assistance programs to help homeowners pay for the replacement of the service line from your house to your property line. When a home owner is ready to replace the water line from their house to the property line, Halifax Water will replace the section from the property line to the lead-free main line under the road.

Digging up roads, sidewalks, and landscaping on the Halifax Peninsula and downtown Dartmouth requires precise expertise and years of experience to ensure the process is executed in an efficient and timely manner. We are an approved contactor to work within the Halifax Water right-of-way. Therefore we can replace both the public and private service sections at the same time. This is the ideal method for homeowner’s to ensure their water is safe and lead free. Call G&R Kelly for a free estimate and peace of mind.
