Drinking Water System Components - Health Effects
|Publication Date:||19 October 2014|
This Standard is intended to cover specific materials or
products that come into contact with: drinking water, drinking
water treatment chemicals, or both. The focus of the Standard is
evaluation of contaminants or impurities imparted indirectly to
drinking water. The products and materials covered include, but are
not limited to, process media (e.g., carbon, sand), protective
materials (e.g., coatings, linings, liners), joining and sealing
materials (e.g., solvent cements, welding materials, gaskets),
pipes and related products (e.g., pipes, tanks, fittings),
mechanical devices used in treatment/transmissi
Point-of-use drinking water treatment devices are not covered by the scope of this Standard.
This Standard establishes minimum health effects requirements for the chemical contaminants and impurities that are indirectly imparted to drinking water from products, components, and materials used in drinking water systems. This Standard does not establish performance, taste and odor, or microbial growth support requirements for drinking water system products, components, or materials.
