Frequent Questions

Are household appliances or fixtures, such as washing machines, dishwashers and water heaters subject to the lead free requirements?

If the appliance or fixture is part of the plumbing system and is not used exclusively for nonpotable services, it is subject to the lead free requirements. As a result, washing machines are exempt as a device that is used exclusively for nonpotable services. Dishwashers and water heaters, on the other hand, are not exempt because they are used for potable services.
