The leakage of lead into drinking water is such a problem that the AB1953 Lead Law had to be passed in California, and the law goes into effect on January 1, 2010. The leakage of lead into our potable drinking water has led to numerous health problems, not to mention the effect that lead has had on the environment. You need AB1953 compliant plumbing fixtures that are environmentally friendly.
ProBite® offers a wide selection of plumbing fittings that are AB1953 compliant and environmentally friendly. The fittings are also user friendly, in that they easily connect to existing piping without having to use messy glues or soldering – they simply push onto the pipe for a secure connection, and they can be installed in a matter of seconds.
ProBite® has fittings that work with copper pipes and tubing. Many older homes and businesses will have plumbing that uses copper pipes extensively, if not totally. Copper was used so extensively in the past because it was one of the few affordable options for piping that could resist corrosion and transfer hot water without failing.
Later, the option to use CPVC tubing was available, and many newer homes and businesses are fitted with this type of plumbing system. CPVC is considered to be better than copper, because it is also resistant to corrosion and high temperatures, and it can better handle high pressure. CPVC is also more resistant to other chemicals in the earth, such as oxidants and halogens, salts and acids, and aliphatic solutions. ProBite® fittings can be used with existing CPVC tubing as well.
With concern for the environment growing, we were introduced to PEX tubing. PEX is cross linked polyethylene piping that is environmentally safe. It does everything that CPVC does, in terms of being corrosion resistant, handling hot temperatures, and high pressures, but it is also flexible, which makes it much more suitable for a variety of plumbing jobs, as it does not require the use of so many elbows or couplings. ProBite® has no lead brass fittings, specifically ProBite® Hi-Flo stiffeners, for use with PEX tubing.
ProBite® has push connect ball valves, push connect angle and straight stop valves, elbows, tees, couplings, and any other type of plumbing fittings that you may require, and all of their products are not only AB1953 compliant, but also friendly for the environment. If compliance and lead free drinking water are important to you, as they should be, you definitely need to see what ProBite® has to offer.
