Spelling matters! To my knowledge there is no such thing as dacromate. Please try to track back to where you saw this word and see what it is supposed to mean. But there is a proprietary zinc-rich paint process called Dacromet from Metal Coatings International, and there is a generic chromate conversion coating process which is sometimes called dichromate (which is also the name of the chemical radical Cr2O7--). I don't believe the former is suitable for potable water service, and I know the latter isn't.

If you mean DACROMET, it's not Food contact approved :-(

This is coating that contains chromium, Al and Zn used in automotive metal parts.
