Brass valves a no-no in California? Brass and steel mix?
Posted by DavidH on December 15, 1999 at 18:05:27:
I finally found a 110V solenoid valve (with built in junction box) at Grainger. Its a Dayton Brass valve. But, there is a asterix that says that California has determined this material causes blah blah blah. Wow! There are stainless steel valves from Dayton that are cheaper (less than 1/2 price!) and do not have the warning.

But, can I connect a copper water line to a stainless steel valve? I know that usually dissimilar metals are a real problem...
