This check valve complies with lead free plumbing laws but less than 0.25% lead, with warning: cancer and Reproductive Harm.
Can I replace the very old check valve with this check valve on my main water pipe?
We scoff at laws, rules, and codes. What's wrong with a little reproductive harm and some cancer ... not like that's ever killed anybody. I say find a check valve that's 100% lead, those seal better. But what do I know, not like I'm a professional in the trade, which is required to be a posting member on this site.
