Wheatland Tube is NSF-61 compliant, are you?

on January 17, 2014

Wheatland Tube recognizes the importance of being lead-free, as our standard pipe supply has been lead-free for over a decade. As of January 4, 2014, all manufacturers, distributors, plumbers and builders must be in compliance with the Reduction of Lead in Drinking Water Act, affecting all potable plumbing products sold or installed in the United States. 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. Professionals can comply with the new law by selling and/or installing NSF-61 certified products.

The sure way to comply is to stock Wheatland Tube. Look for NSF-61 stenciled on our pipe and ensure that you are in compliance. Wheatland has achieved third party compliance through Water Quality Association (WQA) on its black and galvanized pipe.

  • A53 CW and ERW Pipe
  • Galvanized Pipe (99.99% pure zinc)
  • All sizes (1/8″ – 6″NPS)

We have years of experience in water system component safety. Wheatland has prepared a technical briefing to help distributors and contractors understand the new regulations regarding lead levels in drinking water. Know better. Know Wheatland.
