New Lead Law for Faucets
Last year my son Theo was exposed to lead dust so I am particularly aware of new ways I can cut out additional lead exposure. Here is new one for my to do list.
This month a new law went into effect in our home state of CA lowering the amount of lead that a faucet may be made of from 8% to less than 0.25%. Hopefully this will help to protect drinking water. As it turns out, brass faucets contain lead to - lead is a key ingredient in brass.
All California schools, businesses and homes will have faucets that are effectively obsolete due to the Assembly Bill 1953’s strict requirements.
Cole Hardware emailed me a 25% coupon for new compliant faucets... once they get some in stock. Here is the coupon for you.
I will keep you posted on my faucet plans.
