Should I be nervous about plumbing Water Hero into my home piping system?
You should certainly be careful about what you install into your home piping system, but Water Hero is safe – here’s why! The Water Hero P-100 comes with our traditional water meter and a motorized ball valve. These are what is cut into the pipe and they are very typical components that plumbers and municipalities are familiar with.
The water meter we provide is an AWWA Standard, NSF-Certified, Lead Free Brass Water Meter with Unions. This is very similar, if not the same meter that a water utility cuts into your pipe at the street or in your basement.
The motorized ball valve is also an NSF-Certified Lead Free Full Port Ball Valve. The gearing and valve body are stainless steel to ensure long last operation. The valve is rated for 70,000 turns and includes an easy-to-operate manual override.
Because the components that are cut into the line are standard, lead-free and safe! Plumbers are familiar with the components so installation is easy.
