Plumbing contractors are well aware of the need for lead free compression fittings and other lead free plumbing components. Lead free fittings are necessary to ensure that our drinking water is safe.
Regulations have been in place since “The Safe Drinking Water Act” was first passed in 1974 to set minimum requirements for drinking water safety and quality. Between 1980 and 1990, it was significantly amended with ever-decreasing amounts of lead allowed in the manufacturing of parts for use in water systems meant for humans.
Implemented by the federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), it is now primarily enforced by individual states. However, new standards have just been released for 2014 that lowers the 2011 allowable amount of lead from 8% to a weighted average of not more than 0.25% in the wetted surface material.
The new standards were made in 2011 but the EPA gave manufacturers three years to comply with the new standards. Gruner Brass has worked hard to comply with the change modifying our manufacturing process to make lead free compression fittings that contain no more than 0.25% of lead.
We now stock policy-compliant lead free fittings of every kind required for use in systems supplying water for human consumption.
Manufacturing and supplying industry standard, high quality and federal regulation compliant products is what we do. We have been doing it for 32 years now so you can be assured that we know what we are doing, or we wouldn’t have been able to stay in business for so long!
