CA Prop 65 Warning Compliance
As many of you are aware, the state of California enacted Proposition 65 back in 1986 to protect its residents from the possible exposure dangers of many naturally occurring and synthetic chemical substances found in products we use in our everyday lives. The official name of Proposition 65 is the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986. Proposition 65 requires businesses to provide warnings to Californians about significant exposures to chemicals that cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm.

We offer a wide array of products made of various plastics and metals which may or may not contain or be manufactured using chemical substances found in California’s Proposition 65 list of harmful substances. We want all of our customers to make informed decisions about the products you purchase. The products we sell are for use in irrigation applications. That being said, you may see the following or similar warning(s) listed only on some of our products, however, we do not recommend any of our products for drinking water applications or for use as food grade components.
