Company Reference: 

Speedfit Test Caps provide a leak-proof seal in conjunction with push-fit fittings for securing PEX, CPVC or copper piping in domestic hot and cold water systems and in hydronic heating applications when a job is in process or interrupted, such as when water needs to be turned back on or when pressure testing a system before appliances are connected. They are easy to install and disconnect without tools. Disconnection should not damage the fitting or piping, and they can be removed at any stage to allow work to continue.

Aging Out

Recently, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced it had worked with three New Jersey school districts to successfully lower lead levels in their drinking water. Testing in 2010 and 2011 found elevated lead levels in approximately 8% of the outlets it tested at the Atlantic City, Union City and Weehawken school districts. The districts resolved the problem through a variety of methods, from filtration to replacing fixtures to simply shutting off those outlets. The latest round of testing showed that lead levels were within acceptable EPA limits.

The Importance of Fine Print

Recently I purchased a food processor. Before using it for the first time, I read the 18-page instruction booklet and watched a 45-minute DVD. I asked myself, “Why do I put so much time and effort into researching how to use a relatively simple device?” The answer came to me immediately: I have been in the product certification business for almost eight years, primarily dealing with NSF/ANSI 61 certifications.
