This Federal Law mandates the whetted surface of pipe, fixture, and fittings sold for or installed in potable water applications conveying potable water for the purpose of drinking and/or cooking purposes, not contain more than 0.25% lead by weight. Similar laws have also been passed and are already in effect in California, Vermont, Maryland, and Lousiana. This JR Smith product does meet these criteria.
