What does lead free mean with regard to water valves? Lead Free NSF61G refers to the wetted surface of pipe, fittings and fixtures in potable water systems that have a weighted average lead content = 0.25% Source: California Health & Safety Code (116875); Vermont Act 193. California Assembly Bill 1953 and Vermont Act 193 reduced the amount of lead in specific plumbing fixtures from its current amount of no more than 8% to a new standard not to exceed 0.25%. All fifty states must comply with this NEW 0.25% requirement by January 4, 2014.
