Who is Watts?
Almost 150 years ago in the New England area, water boilers were exploding because of over-pressurization. Joseph Watts created a product that solved the problem. His pressure reducing valve eliminated the danger of boilers in the Industrial Age. Until the 1950s, Watts marketed their valves as "explosion danger preventers."
Watts Water Technologies entered the water treatment industry in 1978 and is now one of the most popular brands of water filtration products. Watts provides resources to water filter distributors like Fresh Water Systems. They allow us to buy products and specifically tailor them to suit the needs of our guests and partners.
5 of the best products from Watts
1. Watts reverse osmosis systems
Watts under-sink reverse osmosis systems are a popular choice to treat drinking water at the tap. The Watts RO system eliminates leaks during filter changes with an automatic shut-off valve, and the Kwik Change filters make the installation process simple. Watts has started to phase out their Kwik Change filters, and we're anxiously awaiting what new technology they offer next.
2. Watts faucets
Watts top-mount faucets come in air-gap to prevent dirty water from backflowing into your RO system and non-air-gap faucets. When installing a traditional faucet, you must crawl under the counter to secure the bolts and the mounting hardware. With a top-mount faucet, you simply feed the tubing down through the hole in the sink. Any other installation steps happen above the sink, so no plumbing assistance is required.
