Frequently Asked Questions

Q. "How are lead levels in drinking water currently regulated?"

Q. "How do I disconnect the pipe from these John Guest® shut-off valves?"
A.
How to disconnect John Guest push connect fittings

Q. "What does CTS mean?"
A. CTS stands for "copper tube size" which is also referred to as the nominal inside diameter pipe size. This means that the outside diameter will be 1/8" bigger than the "size" of the pipe. For example, 1/2" CTS has an actual o.d. of 5/8", 3/4" CTS has an actual o.d. of 7/8", and 1" CTS has an actual o.d. of 1-1/8".

Q. "Can I use SharkBite® fittings with soft copper tubing or rolled copper?"
A. No. Even though these SharkBite® fittings are remarkably innovative, they won't seal properly with soft or rolled copper and are for use only with hard drawn copper Types K, L, and M.

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 click here.
