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.
