The New Lead Free* Law

On January 4, 2014 the "Reduction of Lead in Drinking Water Act," more commonly known as the Lead Free law, went into effect. The new national mandate requires that every pipe, fixture, and fitting used to convey water for potable use contain less than 0.25% of lead by weight.

Here at Watts, we are committed to helping you plan for this transition—so we’ve compiled a comprehensive set of resources at Our collection of tools, which includes a product lookup guide, FAQs, videos, and more, is designed to help you successfully handle the Lead Free changeover.
