Water-Right®, a leading independent original equipment manufacturer (OEM) in the water treatment industry, is proud to announce its latest product offering ONE™, a cartridge tank filter system specifically designed to reduce contaminants while maintaining high flow rates. Perfect for residential and light-commercial applications, the large capacity is certified for the removal of several contaminants including lead, PFOA/PFOS and cyst reduction.

“Water quality and eliminating emerging contaminants is top of mind for today’s consumers,” said Kurt Gruett, president of Water-Right®, Inc. “The ONE™ cartridge filter was designed to help give people peace of mind their water is safe for consumption.”

ONE™ carbon block filters have a certified capacity up to 50,000 gallons on lead, PFOA/PFOS chemicals and cyst reduction. The innovative filter is considerably larger than the average in-home system and is specifically designed for higher flow rates, higher contaminant retention capacities and extended replacement frequency. The cartridge features easy access and requires no special tools for service and replacement.

“Water-Right has a unique top and bottom cap to our filter cartridges for easier maintenance and installation,” Gruett explained.

The cartridge’s exclusive “stand off” leg allows debris to clear from the filter and tank through a bottom drain, further extending the product’s lifecycle.

“In addition, we have been approved for our own WQA certification when paired with a WaterCare® or Evolve® system enabled with a service alarm Performance Indication Device (PID), the ONE™ carbon block filter is certified up to 100,000 gallons of use,” Gruett said.

The ONE™ filter system is currently available for purchase through Water-Right’s complete product lines. For additional information, contact a Water-Right regional sales manager, call Water-Right at 800-777-1426 or visit water-rightgroup.com.

With the versatility to handle 1-1/4” to 4” drain lines, General Pipe Cleaners’ Root 66® is three machines in one.

Designed to clear practically any inside or rooftop drain, the Root 66 sectional cable power drain cleaner uses 5/8″ or 7/8″ sections interchangeably. There’s no need for adapters or tools to switch from one cable size to the other!

General Pipe Cleaners' Root 66Need to clear sinks and other small drain lines? Get the optional drum with smaller 1/4″, 5/16” or 3/8” Flexicore® cables. Just slide onto the back of Root 66, and you’re ready to go.

A General exclusive, optional 7/8″ Proflex® sectional cables (15R10-P) sport an inner spring. It gives the cable greater strength to transfer extra torque down the line for additional cutting power.

And now you can quickly and cleanly use sectional drain cleaners in confined and hard-to-access areas with General’s new 5’ by 7/8” (5R-10) sectional cable. It offers better control to reduce the risks of spraying walls, floors, and furniture from exposed wet, spinning cables.

Operating Root 66 is easy, too. Depress the drive handle for plenty of cable torque from the 1/2 hp capacitor motor. Release the drive handle and the cable immediately stops rotating – for no additional torque build-up. A wide, four-point base adds greater stability, and an optional dolly offers easy transport over long distances.

Other accessories include cable carriers, the optional drum for small drain work, and a toolbox. Standard equipment includes a ground fault circuit interrupter, double palm leather gloves, rear guide hose, and General’s tradition of quality, performance and reliability.

A. O. Smith Residential Water Treatment Solutions, plumbing, water filtrationGlobal water technology company A. O. Smith Corporation announced the introduction of its first A. O. Smith line of residential water treatment products available exclusively to the wholesale channel. Designed for plumbing contractors, the new A. O. Smith PRO water treatment line will include high-performance, commercial-grade point-of-use water filtration systems; water softeners and salt-free water conditioners; and water neutralizing and descaling accessories to allow for a fully comprehensive solution for healthier water.

“As concerns about water quality continue to grow nationwide, providing distributors and contractors the ability to help solve these issues and improve overall water quality becomes more important,” said Sam Karge, president of the North American water treatment division at A. O. Smith. “The new line leverages cutting-edge technology to provide cleaner, healthier and better-tasting water throughout the home while also extending the life of appliances and plumbing.”

Water Filtration

The new A. O. Smith PRO water filters feature four under-counter drinking water systems, including a high-flow option that attaches directly to an existing faucet and three systems that use dedicated faucets. The PRO line systems range from carbon-based filters to a premium reverse osmosis option that reduces up to 99 percent of 90 contaminants, including lead, fluoride, asbestos, PFOA/PFOS, pesticides, pharmaceuticals, viruses, bacteria and more.

Water Softening

The A. O. Smith PRO water softeners reduce excessive calcium and magnesium to solve hard water problems throughout the home. Available in two sizes – 34,800 grain capacity and 49,800 grain capacity – the softener offering includes two slim, single-unit options that come with self-cleaning sediment filters, power-loss protection, touchscreen controllers and varying capacities.

Water Conditioning

The A. O. Smith PRO Water Conditioner utilizes innovative filtration and salt-free scale reduction technology to extend the life of the appliances and plumbing. Designed for use on city or well-water connections, the system reduces scale buildup and more than 97 percent of chlorine for up to six years or 600,000 gallons.

Water Treatment Accessories

The A. O. Smith PRO Acid Neutralizer neutralizes acidic condensation from high-efficiency tankless water heaters and helps prevent premature deterioration and damage to pipes and other materials. The A. O. Smith PRO Inline Descaler resists scale buildup, extends the life of water heaters without adding chemicals to the water and does not require electricity.
