I live in California, I’d like to purchase one of your products that’s marked “Not for Sale or use in CA”. Why am I not being allowed to purchase what I want?
The state of California instituted a series of regulations, effective January 1st, 2016 (called Title 20) that requires lavatory, kitchen, certain tub shower valves, toilets, and shower heads to meet certain water volume restrictions. Also, any of the aforementioned fixtures have to be certified “Low flow” by the State of CA. Unfortunately, older fixtures which used to be exempt are no longer. Certifying old fixtures simply isn’t cost effective as each individual fixture would have to be sent to a independent laboratory for certification, adding $1000’s of dollars to the cost of a $300 faucet.
As the reproduction Faucets/toilets are certified by the manufacturers, we will again be allowed to sell them.
