Frequent Questions

Are temporarily installed items, including those used for emergency repairs, subject to the new lead free requirements?

There is no exemption in the statute for temporary or emergency repairs; therefore under the language of the statute, any pipe, fitting or fixture used in installation or repair, beginning January 4, 2014, is subject to the lead free requirements and must meet the new definition of lead free, even if their installation is only temporary or for an emergency repair.
