When contractors pipe a potable water system, some of the bronze valves you supply have an expiration date. After Jan. 4, 2014, U.S. Senate Bill S.3874 will require all valves used in potable systems to be lead-free*. Over the past few years, California and several other states passed laws to regulate lead content in plumbing products used for potable water systems. The U.S. federal government followed suit and U.S. Senate Bill S.3874 was signed into law. This new law dictates that all pipes valves and fittings in potable water systems contain less than 0.25% lead. To meet this challenge, Milwaukee Valve developed its lead-free* UltraPure® product line. Fully certified by independent testing agencies to ANSI/NSF 61-8, Annex G and California AB 1953, the UltraPure line features robust alloys that exceed the stringent requirements of U.S. Senate Bill S.3874.
