NEW ORLEANS - Friday April 19, 2013Pentair® Everpure®, a leader in commercial grade, water filtration for the residential space, celebrates its 80-year anniversary by showcasing its innovations in water treatment at KBIS. Pentair, the manufacturer of the Everpure line of products, is renewing its commitment to developing products that improve ease-of-use for consumers and reduces the products’ environmental footprint. The showcase took place at KBIS in New Orleans, the largest kitchen and bath industry tradeshow in North America.

 

At the show, Pentair presented an array of water treatment technologies that reflect its current product development focus. One such innovation is its Everpure® PBS-400, a prep sink and wet bar filtration system. This full flow system plumbs directly into an existing prep sink or bar sink faucet. “This means that consumers can still enjoy the benefits of commercial grade water filtration without the hassle of having to add faucets or adding to their existing plumbing configurations. And because of this key functional benefit, the product significantly reduces the time needed for installation,” noted Neal White, national sales manager. The product also filters roughly 23,300 bottles of water (based on the standard 16oz bottle). In other words by using this system, consumers reduce the number of bottles of water that they purchase which conserves the environment and saves them money. The product also offers the added benefit of lime scale reduction which helps extend the life of the homeowners’ expensive water using appliances.

 

Another key differentiator of the Everpure line can be found in its exclusive pre-coat technology. This consists of a combination of Micro-Pure® and a unique membrane which provides filtration down to 0.5 micron particulate size and superior taste, odor and cyst reduction.

 

“As a leading American foodservice industry supplier, Everpure has been a trusted provider of commercial water treatment products, services and solutions worldwide since 1933. Following in the Everpure tradition of global leadership in quality, reliability and innovation for commercial applications, Pentair established the Everpure residential line of products which cater to the high-end residential market segment,” noted White - the same line that is the focal point of the brands’ presentation at KBIS. “Our present and future focus is to develop products that flow with the symmetry of upscale kitchen and bath projects while providing premium, hassle free filtration for the home,” said White.
