Q. "Do faucets have lead?"
A.Faucets made with brass will have a certain amount of lead (roughly 3% to 8%) contained in the brass as part of the manufacturing process. The Diamond™ Seal faucets completely separate water contact from any metal in your faucet by using Pex-c waterways.
Q. "What does it mean to have ANSI Certification for lead free plumbing products?"
A. Laws requiring plumbing products that come in to contact with drinking water to be essentially lead-free (0.25% weighted average) have been passed in California, Louisiana, Maryland, and Vermont. In order for companies to ship these plumbing products to locations in CA, LA, MD and VT, they must be ANSI certified lead free.
Q. "What is CA AB 1953, LA Act No. 362, MD HB 372, and VT S.152 and how is this different from previous low-lead legislation?"
A. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulates the amount of lead in drinking water under guidelines established in the Federal Safe Drinking Water Act (passed in 1974; amended in 1988 and 1996). This Act defines "lead-free" as not more than 8% lead in pipes and fixture fittings. PLEASE NOTE: Use of the term "lead-free" varies between the new legislation in CA (AB 1953), LA ( Act No. 362), MD (HB 372), and VT (S.152), and in the current Federal Safe Drinking Water Act requirements. In the new legislation for CA, LA, MD and VT only (as of Jan 2013), it will mean 0.25% or less (weighted average). Similar national legislation is scheduled to go into effect Jan 2014.
Q. "How does lead content in brass faucets affect me?"
A.Water is a solvent, probably the best known solvent on earth. As such, water will absorb metals, minerals, and chemicals that it comes in contact with over a period of time. A faucet that has brass waterways can be susceptible to this process. Water sitting in your faucet can leach the lead out of the brass and enter your water system.
Q. "What is Magnatite™ docking?"
A. This keeps the faucet spray head/wand firmly in place with a powerful integrated magnet, so it stays docked when not in use. The spray head (wand) comes free with a gentle tug and gives you total flexibility. As you raise the wand to dock it, the magnet embedded in the spout pulls the wand precisely into place.
Q. "Do you offer replacement faucet cartridges for these faucets?"
A.Yes. The replacement cartridge is #RP50587 and can be purchased here.
Q. "What is a Brilliance® finish?"
A. A Brilliance® finish is designed to not corrode, tarnish, or discolor. It is developed by embedding molecules deep into the surface, creating a bond that is nearly indestructible. This process is known as Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD).
Q. "Are real diamonds used?"
A. Yes, but not the diamonds you would typically find in a jewelry store. Carbon (the source of diamonds) is taken and electrically charged. Then, using high amounts of pressure, fused to a ceramic plate, creating a diamond coating that is clear and nearly indestructible.
Q. "What is an InnoFlex™ waterway/supply line?"
A. Innoflex™ is a crosslink polyethylene (PEX-C) that is commonly used in the U.S. These new faucet waterways have a unique composition that makes it stronger than copper and easier to work with because it's flexible.
