A lawsuit seeking to prohibit faucet manufacturers from selling products that leach too much lead into water, filed by the state in December, is likely to be painful and costly for Pacoima-based Price Pfister Inc. The California attorney general's suit against Price, a major plumbing-supplies maker, and more than 20 other leading faucet manufacturers is intended to force the companies to stop selling the faucets or substantially reduce their lead content.
