This law prohibits the sale and installation of plumbing products used in a potable water application with wetted surface area containing more than a weighted average of .25% lead.
If you intend to use your pipe, pipe fitting, plumbing fitting, or fixtures in potable water applications, please be sure to specify this in your order or your request for quote, as effective January 4, 2014, potable sources cannot contain lead. M&M Control Service has made every effort to ensure compliance and cannot be held liable for orders placed without potable water application specification.
