    Default faucets with lead in them........

    I noticed that our plumbing supply house was getting rid of Delta faucets real cheap
    and at the end of the year they will probably give them away....

    the story I have been told by my plumbing supply house is they are dumping all
    their faucets over the next few months as quickly as possible because of a new
    lead-free brass laws that takes affect as of 2014. They claim if any faucet with lead
    is sold or installed after the first of the year containing lead in them that their is a huge fine if you are caught.... $25,000..

    This amount seems extreme to me and and I wonder if it is true or were the guys at the supply house just blowing smoke up my ass????


    has anyone else heard about this??

    thank you in advance
