Vesconite Bearings has created a lead-free-water webpage to outline how the company aims to reduce lead exposure from drinking water.
This webpage was motivated by global concerns over safe drinking water, and is to be launched in March 2022, in a month in which World Plumbing Day and World Water Day are historically celebrated.
The former promotes the benefits of safe plumbing and sanitation. The latter focuses on clean, safe drinking water and sanitation.
Reducing lead in drinking water are often emphasised on these days.
Vesconite Bearings is committed to providing lead-free products for the water sector, including bearings, wear rings and wear strips for pumps and valves.
Experts say there are no safe levels of lead. This is especially true for children, who can experience behaviour and learning problems, lower IQ and hyperactivity, slowed growth, hearing problems and anaemia.
