In 2011 Congress enacted the Reduction of Lead in Drinking Water Act to amend the Safe Drinking Water Act's section regarding the use and introduction into commerce of lead pipes, plumbing fittings or fixtures, solder and flux. The Act established a prospective effective date of January 4, 2014, which provided a three year timeframe for affected parties to transition to the new requirements. All of the metal fixtures and fittings sold by H2O Distributors are compliant with this act.
H2O Distributors is proud to feature American-made products on its web site. All such products will be marked with a icon.

Ultraviolet light (or UV) is at the invisible, violet range of the electromagnetic spectrum. The water treatment industry uses a high-powered form of UV light called UV-C or "germicidal UV" to disinfect water from disease causing bacteria and protozoan cysts.
UV technology can be more effective than chemicals in destroying certain waterborne contaminants without altering the taste of the water. This makes it a practical process for treating water that is used for drinking and food preparation.
UV light disinfects by penetrating microorganisms and disrupting their DNA, preventing them from multiplying. The only function of a microorganism is to breed and produce colonies this is why when we ingest microorganisms they make us sick. Visit our 'How Ultraviolet Purification Works' guide to learn more.
