Read This Before You Buy and Install Drinking Water Systems and Products

Lead in Drinking Water and Plumbing Products
Before you buy and install any drinking water plumbing fixtures, be certain to verify that your new products comply with WAC 246-220, which states "All materials shall conform to the ANSI/NSF Standard 61 if in substantial contact with potable water supplies." How will you know if the products you intend to purchase comply? The EPA has put together a document that explains how to identify lead-free certification marks for drinking water systems and plumbing products.
