The Plumbing Contractors of America (PCA) has just issued a new guide to help contractors comply with an amendment to the Safe Drinking Water Act (SWDA) calling for a reduction in the lead content of potable water systems to less than 0.25% with respect to fittings and fixtures and 0.2% with respect to solder and flux. The provisions were enacted in 2010 and take effect on January 4, 2014. From that day forward, contractors will only be able to install low-lead fixtures, fittings, valves, solder and flux on potable systems, including those in development. Find out what steps you need to take to comply with the new law at www.mcaa.org. This Guide is provided free to MCAA/PCA members as a benefit of membership.
