What is Lead-Free feature for auto faucet?
Our sensor activated faucets are not only elegantly designed with the highest quality. They are also made with lead free material and are safe to use for drinking water. Lead free and drinking water safe faucets are increasingly becoming required in many countries and regions globally. This is to ensure lead or other contaminant exposure, particularly through drink water, which may cause delayed physical and mental development in children and kidney problems in adults, can be prevented.
What is a Lead-Free faucet and why you should choose it?:
The Lead-Free auto faucet are water taps of a weighted average of 0.25% Lead calculated across the wetted surfaces of a pipe, pipe fitting, plumbing fitting, and fixture and 0.2% lead for solder and flux. It is specified in Section 1417 of the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA).
The reason why you should consider using a lead-free faucet is majorly for safety and health concern. It's said that about 20% of human exposure to lead come from lead found in drinking water. It could cause delayed physical and mental development for children and kidney problems or high blood pressure for adults.
Do you always need to select a Lead-Free auto Faucet?:
Choosing lead-free auto faucet is highly recommended whenever you take it for dispensing drinking water. For example, in hotels, households or offices, it is required to install a leadfree faucet.
If the water faucets are for hand washing only, for example, in public washrooms or toilets of commercial buildings, lead-free may not be necessarily required. However, it is suggested to still select auto faucets with proper certificates in your areas.
