Do you know Acorn offers Stainless LEAD‐FREE Hose & Supply Boxes?
Lead‐free is becoming a nationwide requirement soon. In response to the California and Vermont lead‐ free laws enacted in 2010, a new standard (NSF 372) was created mandating no more than a weighted average of 0.25 percent lead on the wetted surfaces of pipes, pipe fittings, plumbing fittings, and any product (fixture) used in a potable (drinking) water system. The new Federal Law that mandates NSF 372 nationwide, the National Reduction of Lead in Drinking Water Act (Senate Bill S.3874), will become effective January 4, 2014. Acorn Engineering Company already offers several lead‐free products. Our standard Air Control valves are lead‐free; we also offer Stainless Steel Hose & Supply boxes that are certified lead‐free when selecting option (‐SSLF).
