Our driver/technician/salesperson is trained to help you find system solutions to ensure you stay in compliance with the EPA Lead and Copper Rule.
Lead and Copper Rule Requirements
Exposure to lead and copper may cause health problems so in 1991 the EPA published a regulation to control lead and copper in drinking water. This regulation is known as the Lead and Copper Rule.
If lead concentrations exceed an action level of 15 ppb or copper concentrations exceed an action level of 1.3 ppm in more than 10% of customer taps sampled, the system must undertake a number of additional actions to control corrosion.
Lead Corrosion Control
We supply the products that prevent lead from leaching into the water. Lead could be in the plumbing or in the lead solder used in the system. We can help you stay in compliance with EPA Lead and Copper regulations.
Lead in your water at elevated rates could have potentially harmful effects. The goal of corrosion control programs is not only to reduce the corrosion of distribution mains but also to minimize the release of lead and copper from residential plumbing fixtures.
Corrosion Control Treatment
Water treatment corrosion control products that are phosphate based corrosion inhibitors are one of the main ways for lead prevention water treatment
