Everpure Launches Second Generation Exubera™ Sparkling & Chilled Water Dispenser

MILWAUKEE, Wis., May 17, 2011 - From homemade sodas to fruit-flavored drinks, homeowners have fallen in love with the bubbly, healthy alternatives to sugary, high-calorie drinks. Carbonated water isn't just for the bottling companies anymore. Everpure, a brand within Pentair Residential Filtration, makes adding sparkling water to the home simple with its second generation Exubera™ Sparkling & Chilled Water Dispenser. The new upgraded appliance produces even more cool, carbonated - or flat - refreshing water than ever before to accommodate any gracious host's entertaining needs.

The Exubera appliance chills carbonated or flat water as cool as 40 degrees Fahrenheit. Utilizing the upgraded appliance, it is easy to make Italian sodas at home with gourmet syrups and Exubero™ Sparkling & Chilled Water Dispenser by Everpure fruit, using less sugar - or none at all - while avoiding chemicals and preservatives. The Exubera is also a perfect tool for mixed drinks, delivering flawless vodka sodas, Mojitos and more. A simple adjustment to the CO2 regulator is all that's needed to increase or decrease the amount of carbonation in the water produced by the Exubera.

With a redesigned "ice bank," Exubera can now dispense the equivalent of three and a half two-liter bottles of chilled water at once. This seven liter output is up from four liters in the appliance's first generation. Exubera can also now produce 30 liters of cold water per hour, an increase over the 25 liters produced by the initial model. For the best-tasting sparkling water possible, it is recommended that the Exubera appliance be paired with any Everpure commercial water grade filtration system, such as the H-300 or PBS-400, to reduce water contaminants and provide clean, safe, great-tasting water on tap.
