What is the Lead Free Law?
Effective January 1, 2014 the Reduction of Lead in Drinking Water Act (42 USC 300G) requires that any valve, fitting, or fixture coming in contact with potable water (used for drinking or cooking) must meet the requirement of having weighted average of less than 0.25 percent lead content
This act has already taken effect in several individual states in the U.S. (California, Vermont, Maryland, and soon to be Louisiana)
Why Lead Free?
Studies have shown that by reducing lead in the nation's drinking water systems, the U.S. could save up to $53.1 million in health care costs annually. Children and senior citizens are particularly at risk when exposed to lead in drinking water

Lead-Free Sensor Faucets
The Reduction of Lead In Drinking Water Act specifically states all products intended for potable water (used for drinking or cooking), meaning that commercial sensor faucets are technically exempt from conforming to this act and law
Zurn believes in the importance of eliminating the risk in certain products that could potentially affect human water consumption, even if it is not in direct contact. Sensor faucets are installed in various commercial applications, such as food service or patient healthcare facilities. Restaurant employees wash their hands before preparing food, or doctors washing before examining a patient can indirectly affect human health without directly dispensing water for initial consumption
