Federal Law: As of January 4, 2014, Habitat for Humanity Affiliates cannot (i) install, (ii) sell, or (iii) resell "pipes, pipe fittings, plumbing fittings or fixtures" that are not "lead free." The new definition of "lead free" requires that the product have less than 0.25% lead content based on a new statutory formula that factors the total number of components and the wetted surface area of each component. Products subject to this law include: pipes, fittings, and fixtures that may provide water for human consumption (drinking, teeth brushing, food preparation).
