In January 2011, the Reduction of Lead in Drinking Water Act was signed into law, which reduced the allowable lead content of wetted surfaces in drinking water pipes, pipe fittings, and plumbing fixtures as of January 4, 2014. To ensure our customers bottom lines weren't impacted negatively by this transition to no-lead brass, A.Y. McDonald Mfg. Co. launched a microsite with the reference materials below. Although this full site is no longer necessary, we remain committed to educating and assisting our customers. For this reason, we are providing the reference materials and resources regarding the no-lead legislation and transition below. For further information, please contact your sales representative or our factory at 1-800-292-2737.
