Lead in Bathtub Glaze

POSTED BY on Dec 5 under Uncategorized

April 10 2013 pics 519   I just read an article in the Dallas Morning News by Valerie Wigglesworth regarding lead in old bathtubs. Lead can leach into the bath water and be ingested by children as they are bathing. If you have an older tub it  should be presumed to have lead in the glaze and to be leaching lead into the bath water. The tub can best be tested for lead by an Inspector using an XRF analyzer.

I would follow the advice in the article and either replace the tub or have it refinished.
