"XL" means lead-free products
As you shop our Wilkins selection, you my find a product listed as discontinued; however, this may mean that the product sku has been changed with an appended XL.
Example: To replace a Wilkins 950 Double-Check Valve Assembly, you would now order the 950XL — indicating the product is lead free.

Previous regulation defined safe levels as up to 8%.
