ECAST Low Lead Faucets

In 2010, new laws regarding lead content in plumbing products that deliver water for human consumption will take effect in states around the country. Once again, Chicago Faucets is leading the way to respond to these new low lead initiatives with ECAST™.

ECAST, from Chicago Faucets, is the line of durable, high quality brass faucets and fixtures that are designed and manufactured with less than one quarter of one percent (0.25%) total lead content by weighted average. These products are intended for installation in locations where state laws and local codes mandate lead content levels or where lead content is a concern.

Projects that are in the planning stage now could be impacted by this new state law. Facilities that should consider ECAST faucets include:

Chicago Faucets is proud to continually take a leadership position on product quality, innovation, conservation and safety. ECAST - combined with water conservation, sustainability and anti-microbial initiatives - will allow you to specify, install and use the highest quality commercial grade products that meet or exceed the latest laws, codes and environmental initiatives.
