All SSP products are designed and manufactured with safety in mind. The following is a limited list of general safety tips as reminders of good safety practices:
To help ensure the safe and reliable performance of SSP products, complete system design must be considered prior to the installation of the tubing, hose, pipe, and fittings. Determining the design compatibility of materials, media, flows, temperatures and pressures; as well as implementing proper installation, operation and maintenance of the system are the responsibilities of the systems’ owners, designers and users.
According to California EPA’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA):
The California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (Proposition 65)
requires the State to publish a list of chemicals known to cause cancer or birth defects or
other reproductive harm. The current list contains over 900 chemicals which include
naturally occurring substances and chemicals used in manufacturing and processing of
Under Proposition 65, it is the duty of the manufacturer to advise its customers of potential chemicals from the 900+ listed that might have trace amounts known by the state of California to do harm. Because of these requirements, SSP will now include warnings, where applicable, on the outermost packaging of all products being shipped into the state of California. We will also include the warning on the packing list of all products being shipped into the state of California.
The warning does not mean our products will cause cancer or reproductive harm, nor that it is in violation of any safety standards or regulations. It is a public “Right to Know” notice
that the product may contain or have traces of said chemicals.
