Improving Water Quality in Australian Schools and Hospitals

What were the results from the Ezy-Drink ® bubblers manufactured using Lead Safe™ technology?

The final results from four separate rounds of tests during 2019 were: • The water extracts taken from the Galvin Specialised Ezy-Drink ® bubblers manufactured from Lead Safe™ 316 stainless steel, showed no detectable levels of lead in the water (<0.001mg/L). • The water extracts from the Ezy-Drink ® bubblers manufactured from Lead Safe™ low lead DZR brass, showed no detectable levels of lead in the water (<0.001mg/L).

• The water extracts from the Ezy-Drink ® bubblers manufactured from standard DZR brass showed very low lead levels in the water (<0.002mg/L). This is five times under the maximum limit set out in the ADWG. Therefore, all styles of Ezy-Drink ® bubblers are delivering water that is many times under the maximum allowable lead level of <0.01mg/L as set in the ADWG and therefore could be considered safer for drinking water.

A safer choice for schools and hospitals

• Products manufactured using

• The WHO state there is no known level of lead exposure that is considered safe and it is agreed by health experts that any form of lead ingestion should be reduced or eliminated. 1 • This study confirms, lead exposure in drinking water is preventable, and subject to the inlet water being lead free: - Drinking water supplied via Ezy- Drink ® bubblers made from GalvinClear ® Lead Safe™ materials, contains no detectable levels of lead. - All our Ezy-Drink ® drinking bubbler models have levels of lead significantly under the requirements set by the WHO and the ADWG.

GalvinClear ® Lead Safe™ materials and technology are a safer and healthier choice for the community, especially for areas of greatest risk such as schools and hospitals.
