CopperHead® Makes Complying With the Lead Law Very Easy by Providing Lead Law Compliant No Lead Copper Fittings.
As we learned years ago with lead paint, lead can be very dangerous to humans. This danger brought about laws that prohibited the use of lead based paints, and now there is a lead law that lowers the acceptable Pb (lead) levels in all brass products used in potable water systems. Potable water systems are water systems used for both cooking and consumption.
In 2006, California passed the AB1953 Lead Law, which went into effect on January 1, 2010. The law mandates lead levels on products used in a potable water system contain less than .25 percent lead. In January 2011, the U.S. Safe Drinking Water Act was signed into law. The law takes effect nationwide on January 4, 2014. In 2014, all plumbing fittings used in water systems for cooking and potable water must be lead-free (less than .25% lead)
In addition to our lead law compliant copper, CopperHead® fittings and valves are tested to be zinc-free and dezincification resistant. The high-performance seals used in our push fit products are certified Chloramine resistant.
Installation of our push fittings takes just a few seconds, and it is easy for professionals, as well as those who are completing do-it-yourself projects. Get lead out of your life, and out of your drinking water, with CopperHead® fittings .
