- Jan 24, 2013I used to be a licensed home inspector in the United States, and I can says there is misconception as to the make up of brass. By US government regulations, a small amount of lead is allowed in brass to make it more malleable during the manufacturing process. Since household faucets contain brass, water testing for lead might result in a false/positive reading. Leave it to the government to allow companies to poison us.

Ricky,Common distiller wisdom has it that if your brass is of new manufacture, and not from China, it will not contain lead and will be safe to distill through.
