To date, our Summer Counter Days have been a big success. Grundfos Week generated enthusiasm about our series of counter days, our counter renovation and the new products Grundfos released this year. Today, AO Smith & SharkBite are in the process of leading another strong showing. While SharkBite push-to-connect fittings have been on the market for some time now (and many imitators have flooded the market), customers are impressed by the wide range of SharkBite items now available.
For instance, the SharkBite Tee Stop allows you to tap into existing supply lines to add fixtures like an ice maker, dishwasher or humidifier in one simple step. These SharkBite Tee Stops come in various sizes/configurations (see below chart). In fact, I have one installed at my home, coming off the water heater to a whole-house humidifier.
We also offer many other SharkBite push-to-connect fittings, from straight tees, couplings and elbows; to corrugated and stainless steel flex hoses with ball valves; to larger sized fittings (up to 2″!); to ice maker boxes with push-to-fit connections.
Up next . . . RIDGID COUNTER DAY, next Friday, June 24!
RIDGID Counter Day: June 24, 2016
I don’t need to tell you about RIDGID, which is the name everyone trusts for its quality. RIDGID tools operate in extremes of heat and cold, withstand dirt and mud–and perform reliably day in and day out. RIDGID tools are known the world over as industry-leading products that allow professionals like our customers to complete jobs more quickly and reliably.
RIDGID offers a wide range of tools that are popular with our customers. You might not know, however, about locating devices that RIDGID manufactures. RIDGID Receivers feature an easy-to-use visual mapping display that allows you to locate utility lines and sondes/beacons with confidence.
You can use these with a SeeSnake camera equipped with a sonde transmitter to locate the camera head during an inspection or use with a line transmitter to find buried utilities. These locators can also find flushable float sondes and remote transmitters attached to a push rod or drain cable.
Come by next Friday, and you’ll learn about these, as well as many other RIDGID tools.
