NSF/ANSI 372 Drinking Water System Components – Lead Content is an American National Standard that establishes a standardized methodology for the determination and verification of product compliance to minimize lead contaminants. The NSF/ANSI 372 standard includes:

1) A maximum weighted lead content requirement of 0.25 percent (0.2 percent for solders and fluxes)

2) A formula for calculating the weighted average lead content of each product prior to testing

3) Specific procedures for testing products for lead content

NSF5 This Standard contains requirements for heat recovery equipment and equipment intended to provide hot water heated by electricity, gas, steam, or oil. The types of equipment covered by this Standard include, but are not limited to: automatic storage water heaters, circulating water heaters, hot water supply boilers, and steam heat exchangers.
