Why using lead-free/stainless steel faucets are important to your wellbeing?
Lead-Free Tapware supplies 100% LEAD-FREE stainless steel faucets. We promote a better and safer substitute product to replace both chrome and brass fixtures. In Australia, most faucets still made out of brass/chrome and marked as “Stainless Steel” products in the markets. Unlike other suppliers, we do not simply use stainless steel finishing, we use stainless steel material inside out.
There is no Brass fitting inside. As a result, our tapware range is unique and contains no toxic chemicals.
In the recent research and news on the major Australian media, there are many Australian household drinking water is contaminated with Lead that could particularly put young children and pregnant women at risk.
Lead is a toxic metal that can be kept and accumulate over time in our body particularly in teeth and bones. It can transport to our brain, nerve system, liver, bones and kidney. The stored toxicant in our bone will enter the bloodstream during the maternity period. Lead cannot be removed through boiling or heating.
Young children especially less than the age of six absorb 4 to 5 times more toxic Lead than adult and resulting in various issues:
- Hinder muscle growth & brain development
- Increase chance of behavior problem
- Learning disabilities resulting in a decreased Intelligence Quotient (IQ)
- Speech and language impairment
- Kidney damage
Brass fittings in tapware are responsible for leaching toxic chemicals to drinking water. A comprehensive study conducted by Professor Mark Taylor from Macquarie University said in the interview with SBS news that “The water supply is fine. The issue is the water in the house.” In Recent recommendations by Lead-Free Group Australia and EPA Act by America, The NHMRC of Australia has lowered the recommended blood lead level from 10 μg/dl to 5 μg/dl but the guideline of WHO is that no level of exposure is safe.
Lead-Free Product is safe to use and prevent your family from organ damages, intellectual disorder, kidney toxicity and joint diseases caused by lead contamination in drinking water.
