On this page, we feature lead free brass fittings. Why use lead free fittings? According to the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA), “Any product used to convey water that will be used for human consumption must be lead free.”
At Gruner Brass, our top priority is to provide customers with safe, EPA compliant and reliable products.
Quality, reliable and SAFE PRODUCTS, an extensive inventory, competitive prices, and exceptional customer service with expedited shipping – this just about sums up what Gruner Brass is about. As a manufacturer and global supplier of brass fittings since 1981, you can count on us for all your standard and custom fitting requirements.
New EPA Guidelines for 2014
In 2014, the guidelines for the definition of lead free became considerably stricter than the previous federal requirements. The “Reduction of Lead in Drinking Water Act,” signed Jan. 4, 2011, means that “lead free” is now redefined as, “not more than a weighted average of 0.25% lead when used with respect to the wetted surfaces of pipes, pipe fittings, plumbing fittings, and fixtures.”
Gruner Brass now manufactures and stocks policy-compliant lead free brass fittings. These brass fittings do not contain more than the new amended guidelines 0.25% of lead.
Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc. However, lead has been traditionally added to increase its machinability. Our innovative manufacturing process allows us to create brass products with very low levels of lead that still have the same malleability and qualities that make brass the choice for many applications.
We are dedicated to providing our customers with the highest standards of products. Substandard products lead to substandard work for you. No-one who is in the plumbing industry will want to risk using non-compliant plumbing products. Plumbers that are sited for using such parts can get stiff fines, lose their license, or even be sued.
Trust Gruner Brass to deliver products that meet – and exceed – all regulatory and manufacturing standards.
