Joining lead pipe to copper pipe

ChrisR said:
As I said, you're exposing fresh lead to the water by soldering it. Old lead pipes are covered in scale which practically stops dissolution of the metal.

Makes sense but only "cleaned" the lead as far as the copper would go down. And surely much better than drinking tank water :D
