In the UK, still have lead main water supply pipes, also inside house. I want to solder copper into hot and cold water lead pipes and also close off some lead pipes. Can solder copper to copper without problems but can't find any info on lead to copper. I know about Leadloc connectors, etc. but prefer solder

Ive never connected copper to lead,
I have soldered brass toilet flanges to lead
and you have too use very low heat or you will melt the lead away in no time.Im not
sure I would want too drink from lead pipes,
sounds scarry.
