No Lead Federal Regulation update<< Back To Announcements

7/19/2012

Effective January 1, 2014, the new Federal Safe Drinking Water Act (S.3874) took effect.  This Federal lead law redefines the words “Lead Free”. As of this date the U.S. will adopt the current California, Vermont, Maryland and Louisiana (as of 2013) standard for maximum lead content in a plumbing fixture in contact with water used for human consumption.  The new law will limit the content of lead in these plumbing fixtures to a weighted average lead content of less than 0.25%.

We will continue to make available leaded brass and bronze products for sale to select markets (Turf Irrigation and Swimming Pool and Spa except in California) only for applications that are not used with water for human consumption. We will discontinue brass and bronze leaded products whose sales do not warrant us maintaining an inventory.

American Granby will not accept returns of any leaded products. Due to the size and scope of the potential leaded product that could be left in the inventories of thousands of customers in the remaining 46 states that will have to comply with this new law, returns of these products will not be reasonably workable.

The AGI website has complete listings of No Lead products. For your reference we have attached a listing of the four NO LEAD symbols and explanations we are using to designate NO LEAD?products in our catalog. If you have any questions about this conversion please feel free to contact your AGI sales representative or your Customer Service representative.
