No-Lead Compliant

No-Lead Compliant

Faucets designated as being "no-lead compliant" are those that are compliant with state and federal drinking water legislation. On September 30, 2006, California Health and Safety Code 116875 (AB 1953) was approved in California in an attempt to reduce the amount of lead in drinking water. It was superseded on January 4, 2011 by the Reduction of Lead in Drinking Water Act. Known as the "Get the Lead Out" bill, this federal legislation (S. 3874) specifies that the weighted average lead content of pipes, fittings and fixtures used to convey drinking water cannot exceed 0.25% on wetted surfaces. (The previous national lead-free standard was 8.0%.) This new legislation will take effect on January 4, 2014.
