NOVI, MICH. — BrassCraft announced the availability of its line of plumbing products compliant with California’s and Vermont’s low-lead legislation.
The new legislation limits the lead content of pipes, pipe and plumbing fittings, and fixtures intended to convey or dispense water for human consumption through drinking or cooking.
The checkmark on the product packaging is confirmation that the new line is 100% compliant with California and Vermont. The extreme durability of these parts makes them ideal for most standard household installations, including water heater applications.
Since the enactment of this legislation in 2007, BrassCraft has been preparing for the anticipated change with respect to product development and availability. The launch schedule was designed to give plumbing professionals ample time to adjust their inventories before the law’s effective date of Jan. 1, 2010.
“BrassCraft is proud to take a leading role in engineering California and Vermont compliant products,” said Scott Kay, vice president of operations. “This further proves just how committed BrassCraft is to developing high quality products that meet the needs of plumbers.”
