The SteriPEN Freedom is a pocket-sized UV water purifier with the ability to recharge via a micro-B USB port. The personal water purifier uses UV light to destroy more than 99.9% of bacteria, viruses and protozoa, such as Giardia and Cryptosporidium, in less than one minute. It can provide 8,000 half-liter water treatments and includes an integrated LED flashlight.
The Impression Series RC water conditioner is designed to treat hardness and unpleasant taste and odor in municipal water. It features a mid-plate design combining activated carbon and high-capacity resin into one tank. This eliminates the need for a second filter, and the carbon protects the resin from highly chlorinated water. The system’s microprocessor captures data including gallons per day and peak flow rates.
Water-Right has launched evolveseries.com. From individual “Evolve Program” dealer sites, consumers can link to this website to access product information and view product literature and specifications, including an animated “How it Works” section. Also new is a “Dealers Only” section with marketing information relative to the program and a private chat room where dealers can exchange ideas.
The Iron Kit POE iron removal system features a flow-directing connection manifold coupled to an air release and filter tank in series, incorporating the R-Valve rotating head. The manifold includes air inlet, unfiltered water sample and filtered-water sample ports. It also integrates an electronic turbine flowmeter and monitor with visual and audible service alarm.
The HydroCare Dual Action Water System module transmits a unique radio frequency that suspends minerals in the water and breaks up existing scale without magnets, coils or salts. Dual canisters with multiple media are configured in a parallel design to maximize time and surface exposure without loss of pressure.
