Lemma 15.10.2. Let $(A, I)$ be a Zariski pair. Then the map from idempotents of $A$ to idempotents of $A/I$ is injective.

**Proof.**
An idempotent of a local ring is either $0$ or $1$. Thus an idempotent is determined by the set of maximal ideals where it vanishes, by Algebra, Lemma 10.23.1.
$\square$
