Why the 2014 “Lead-Free” Requirements May Cost You

On behalf of Kaplin Stewart Meloff Reiter & Stein, P.C. posted in Plumbing on Oct 30, 2013.

The Reduction of Lead in Drinking Water Act (amending the allowable levels of lead pursuant to the Safe Drinking Water Act) signed into law nearly three years ago and effective January 4, 2014 imposes a “lead-free” mandate across the United States. The Act makes it illegal to sell or install pipes, fittings, valves, and fixtures in applications providing water for human consumption which exceeds the 0.25% weighted average limit for wetted surfaces, as opposed to the 8% weighted average previously permissible. Wetted parts are essentially any product that conveys water anticipated for human consumption including, for example, meters, expansion tanks, backflow preventers, flexible connectors, strainers, and assorted gauges, fittings, and valves.
