Moen & California's Lead-Free Legislation

In last Thursday's post, we touched upon some legislation that California enacted earlier this year. Health And Safety Code 116875-116880 states that
"No person shall use any pipe, pipe or plumbing fitting
or fixture, solder, or flux that is not lead free in the installation
or repair of any public water system or any plumbing in a facility
providing water for human consumption..."
In short, this means California now requires that all plumbing fixtures (including faucets) meet new standards. Understandably, for the online shopper it could get to be a pain trying to figure out which faucets meet these new standards and which do not.

Fortunately, Moen has made things much easier. Any Moen faucet with a model number beginning with the letters CA meets California's new lead-free requirements. Most of Moen's new kitchen and bathroom faucets are available in both lead-free and non-lead-free models, so if you're a California resident shopping for Moen faucets online, make sure you purchase a faucet that has a model number beginning with CA.
