Safer Drinking Water with Lead-Free Plumbing
Lead is known to be poisonous for human consumption and has been banned in other materials for many years now. Evidence suggests that the currently allowable lead content of 4% in plumbing fittings can result in unsafe levels of lead concentration in drinking water. Following strict restrictions imposed on plumbing materials by some European Countries and the U.S in 2012 plumbing regulators in Australia plan to implement similar restrictions from 2023. REHAU’s commitment to helping the community enjoy the cleanest, safest drinking possible drives us to develop advanced materials the best materials that perform beyond industry standards and regulations.
