Q. "What are the new lead-free plumbing laws?"
A. The new lead-free laws require plumbing products that come into contact with drinking water to be essentially lead-free (0.25% weighted average). These laws were passed in a number of states in 2010, and our U.S. Congress passed national lead-free laws that became effective in January 2014. In order for companies to ship these plumbing products to locations with these updated lead free laws, they must be ANSI certified lead-free.
Q. "How does lead get into drinking water?"
A. Primarily, trace amounts of lead get into drinking water due to aging infrastructures, such as old pipes and plumbing system parts. The Plumbing Manufacturer's Institute (PMI) states that over the past decade, lead levels in plumbing fixture fittings have been reduced to insignificant levels due to improvements in modern manufacturing processes.
Q. "I'm hearing a lot about lead-free these days. What does that have to do with plumbing products and how does the new lead-free legislation affect me?"
A. Basically, the laws implemented Jan. 1st, 2014 require plumbing products that come in contact with drinking water to be essentially lead free (less than 0.25% weighted average). For further information about how the law determines what is lead free, rules regarding which plumbing products must be lead free, and who these laws will affect, please visit our LEAD FREE Plumbing Information page.
