Just in the middle of stripping out my kitchen and noticed that there is a small water leak from a water pipe in the wall which feeds the upstairs bathroom. After taking a closer look I thought perhaps the pipes are lead due to their colour. But after sanding one lightly with SP, it changed colour to a coppery orange colour. What colour are lead pipes when new?? Check the photo:-

Just want a second opinion as I'm not sure what new lead pipes would have looked like. Hope it is copper then it wont be such a pain to repair, otherwise I'll be having to get myself some LeadLok :?
