Health & Safety Code Section 372.005
Commercial Prerinse Spray Valve Performance Standards
(a)A person may not sell, offer for sale, distribute, lease, or import into this state a commercial prerinse spray valve for use in this state unless the prerinse spray valve:
(1)has a flow rate of 1.6 gallons of water per minute or less, as determined using the standard test method for prerinse spray valves developed by the American Society for Testing and Materials as specified in ASTM F2324-03 as that method existed on January 1, 2006; and
(2)is listed by the commission under Subsection (b).
(b)The commission shall make and maintain a current list of commercial prerinse spray valves that are certified to the commission by the manufacturer or importer to meet the performance standards provided by Subsection (a)(1). To have a commercial prerinse spray valve included on the list, the manufacturer or importer must supply to the commission, in the form prescribed by the commission, the identification and the performance specifications of the prerinse spray valve. The commission may test a listed commercial prerinse spray valve to determine the accuracy of the manufacturer’s or importer’s certification and shall remove from the list a prerinse spray valve the commission determines to be inaccurately certified.
(c)The commission may assess against a manufacturer or an importer a reasonable fee for an inspection of a commercial prerinse spray valve to determine the accuracy of the manufacturer’s or importer’s certification in an amount determined by the commission to cover the expenses incurred in the administration of this chapter. A fee received by the commission under this subsection shall be deposited in the state treasury to the credit of the water resource management account. Fees deposited under this section may be appropriated only for the administration of this chapter.
