Grundfos assures early compliance with 2014 requirements for lead content in U.S. pumping systems
Grundfos North America has received a drinking water safety listing for all pumping systems in its standard product range. The listing, NSF/ANSI Standard 61 Annex G (NSF372 - 0.25%Pb), means all components and materials used in Grundfos’ pumping systems achieve health standards for drinking water safety.
The NSF listing covers dozens of pumps and pumping systems designed for boosting water pressure in commercial buildings and water transfer in municipal applications.
The company’s investment into certifications positions Grundfos as one of the only global pump manufacturers to achieve this NSF listing across its entire product range. In order to ensure that the systems as a whole complied with the listing, Grundfos had to evaluate all pump systems’ components that come into contact with water and then perform evaluations on the entire system’s portfolio.
