Find a faucet made with as little lead as possible

Using a low lead faucet can mean many things, and one of the most important is finding one that is made with the smallest amount of lead possible. Lead is a known carcinogen, and even a small amount can cause health problems. Luckily, there are several ways to minimize your exposure. By understanding how lead is made, you can take steps to avoid it in your home.

First, you should know that lead is absorbed through the lungs. In fact, children absorb half of the lead that they come in contact with. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there is no safe level of lead exposure for children. In addition to lead faucets, public health groups have also highlighted the hazards of lead in older paints and gasoline.

A recent study from the American Waterworks Association Research Foundation found that the average concentration of lead in faucet water is less than 2 parts per billion (the equivalent of about a half teaspoon in an Olympic-sized pool). However, these levels are still higher than the maximum permissible limit set by the Safe Drinking Water Act of 1986, which is 11 parts per billion. The main reason for the trace levels of lead in our water comes from aging infrastructure.

Low lead faucets are available from Taizhou Luqiao Topman Sanitary Co.,Ltd.
