Lead in our drinking water is an on-going issue that has plagued health officials for years. Lead in our drinking water can result to a wide array of adverse health effects, including brain, nervous system and blood disorders.
Even more striking, the EPA states that children six years or younger are at a greater risk when being exposed to lead…potentially leading to negative brain development, resulting in learning disabilities and behavior problems.
On January 4th, 2014 the “Reduction of Lead in Drinking Water Act,” otherwise known as the “Lead Free Law,” will officially go into effect. Under this act, any plumbing fixture that is anticipated for dispensing potable drinking water for human consumption must be lead free.
So what does this mean to you?
Well, it means that when you place your glass to your faucet…you can be rest assured that the water being dispersed is safer and cleaner to drink. But what you didn’t know is that Speakman already offers a plethora of products that are lead free, including most, or all of our commercial, sink, and hospitality collection faucets.
Below is our list of Speakman’s lead free products:
When looking at Speakman products, be sure to look for the “-CA” option to properly indicate what products we offer as lead free.
