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. "What should I look for when purchasing a faucet?"
A. You should be asking: Is it easy to get parts? Easy to repair and replace parts? Is it a true "washer less" (doesn't mean it won't leak, it will eventually anyway but is usually easier to operate and easier to repair) or not? Where is it made? What type of warranty? How long has this model been made? Does the manufacturer stand behind their products and how long has that company been in business? Is the company that you are buying the faucet from reputable and been in business long enough so that you know you can trust them?
Q. "What is the quality of Symmons products?"
A. Since the 1930's Symmons has provided superior engineering, and solid workmanship in every product. Product manufacturing, assembly, and handling are subject to strict quality control and only the highest quality materials are selected to ensure durability for years to come.
Q. "Any helpful hints?"
A. ALL faucets WILL leak and need servicing eventually. A good idea is to once or twice yearly, open and close all shut off valves under all faucets. This will help keep them free of sediment and will allow them to be closed when needed.
