So Hot. It's Cool: Everpure Introduces Upgraded Helia™ Water Dispenser

MILWAUKEE, Wis., Apr. 7, 2011 - Purveying the notion that drinking water can be - at once - pure, personalized and delicious, Everpure, a brand within Pentair Residential Filtration, launches its upgraded Helia™ Instant Hot & Chilled Water Dispenser. The celebrated appliance now features an enhanced frame and greater capacity to produce more cold water than ever before. Originally launched in 2008, Helia merges the convenience of two separate units - the Solaria™ Instant Hot Water Dispenser and Polaria™ Instant Chilled Water Dispenser - in one easy-to-install system that provides instantaneous hot and cold water.

With customizable temperature controls, the Helia appliance can heat water up to 200 degrees Fahrenheit and as low as 40 degrees Fahrenheit. A redesigned "ice bank" increases the Helia's production of cold water from 25 liters per hour to 30 liters per hour, and from four liters at once to seven liters at once. The upgraded system also features a reengineered metal frame with 43 percent thicker steel.

Helia can be paired with any Everpure commercial grade filtration system to reduce water contaminants and provide clean, safe, great-tasting water on tap. The Helia appliance is perfect for creating ice-cold drinking water, lemonade and other frosty drinks. All the while, Helia is ready to prepare hot tea, hot chocolate and quick meals such as oatmeal, pasta and soups.
