Durable, lead-free brass is an excellent choice, with all barbs manufactured to highest quality standards and tolerances. Lead-free brass is not more than a weighted average of 0.25% lead when used with respect to the wetted surfaces of pipes and pipe and plumbing fittings and fixtures. Barb fittings can be used with most soft plastic tubing. This barb fitting is easy to use for both contractors and the do-it-yourselfer.
California residents: see Proposition 65 information
