New RIDGID Pipe Patching Kits

We are excited to announce the new RIDGID Pipe Patching kits. Known for their ingenuity, the developers at RIDGID made their systems for CIPP (cured-in-place pipe) patching. CIPP is a method used worldwide to repair broken or damaged pipe sections. This method is known for its quick return on investment, easy learning curve, effectiveness, and reliability, often lasting for decades. RIDGID provides everything needed to get started.

What is CIPP?

process for ridgid pipe patching

CIPP (cured-in-place pipe) patching is a practice of efficiently repairing damaged lines. It’s practical and cost-effective. CIPP is quickly becoming a frontrunner in trenchless pipe rehabilitation. Here is the process, more or less:

  1. Using a camera, inspect the damaged pipe, clear away any blockage and clean the line of debris.
  2. Navigate the Packer with the patch to the patch location, inflate the packer, and let the resin set for its set time.
  3. After the resin has cured, deflate the packer and remove it.

Work time can be as little as fifteen minutes but requires a minimum of 90 minutes for the resin to set. CIPP can be a profitable standalone business or a significant addition to businesses already offering trenchless rehabilitation.

What systems and kits does RIDGID offer?

RIDGID is offering four starter systems and four patch kits. The difference between a starter system and a patch kit is a starter kit has all the tools needed to perform the patch job, including the packer. While the patch kit includes the resin and the packer sleeves, they are sold separately, but each patch kit corresponds to a starter system based on pipe size. Ridgid’s smallest pipe patch system is for a 2-inch pipe with options up to 6 inches.

Starter System

There are four different options for starter kits:

Introducing the Toro Tempus Sprinkler Controller

battery-operated toro tempus can be installed anywhereWe are excited to announce the new Toro Tempus sprinkler controller. As you probably know, Toro is always coming out with cutting-edge products, and the Tempus is an example of their developers’ ingenuity. There is more news! The Toro Tempus will replace and phase out DDCWP sprinkler controllers. Remember that no matter what type you want, this is the best place to buy battery-powered sprinkler timers.

Note: The Rain Bird ESP9V has been a popular series for a while, but there have been sourcing issues during the pandemic. If you can’t find an ESP9V, the Toro Tempus is an excellent substitute with improved features. Compare the Toro Tempus vs. Rain Bird ESP9V before making a decision.

What great features does the Toro Tempus have?

Managing irrigation in areas without electrical connections has just become more streamlined. Not only is the Toro Tempus battery powered, but it also has wireless capability. With the Tempus DC mobile app, you can now connect your smartphone to the Toro Tempus controller allowing you granular control. With its water-saving features, irrigation run time can be set from 0% to 200% in increments of 10%. You can set your watering schedule for seven days, one day, or on/off-day increments. You don’t have to worry about water waste with rain sensor compatibility. Rain sensors prevent irrigation while it’s raining.

The Toro Tempus DC is completely waterproof and has eight new models available. Four with an LCD screen. Four without an LCD screen.

Tempus LCD Controller

You have four LCD display options from which to choose, all based on station count. A well-planned sprinkler system includes an efficient grouping of stations (segmented by the valves). You may see a four-station setup where one station covers the front lawn sprinklers. The back lawn is big enough to require two stations. Then the last station handles the drip irrigation (trees and bushes). You can get sprinkler manifold kits here at PlumbersStock. If you need four zones, get a kit with four valves. Here are the LCD controllers:

Check Out the Milwaukee M18 Carry-On Power Supply

milwaukee m18 carry-on power supply in actionWe are excited to announce an amazing portable power supply solution. The new Milwaukee M18 carry-on power supply is a versatile 15 amp, hassle-free option. This is no surprise, given that Milwaukee has a strong reputation for intelligent engineering. With its compact and lightweight design, you can take it anywhere. It supports 15 amps output, which is crucial for working with a team that needs to be running multiple tools. This M18 Carry-on is expected to ship in October 2022.

Why portable power?

Even with the increased popularity (and effectiveness) of cordless power tools, we still rely on corded power supply on the job site. Battery packs die and frequently need recharge (obviously, you would only use this carry-on to charge non-M18 batteries). On top of that, not every tool has a cordless option. And with contractors going paperless, you’re seeing more laptops on job sites (or other sensitive electronic devices for viewing blueprints).

Product Update: TOTO Aquia IV Toilets Get an Upgrade

toto aquia iv toilets feature a skirted designThe summer of 2022 brings us exciting news about changes to one of our favorite TOTO collections, the renowned Aquia IV series. In September, almost the entire lineup is getting a refresh. This means old models will be phased out and replaced by the latest models with updated features. With one glance at the features and a peek at the designs, it’s easy to see why our customers love TOTO Aquia IV toilets. With literally hundreds of TOTO toilets at friendly prices, you’ve come to the right place.

What’s new in the Toto Aquia IV series?

The updated models have a larger water retention spot (55% larger) in the bowl. The water spot is the surface area of the water. This is a benefit because it’s easier to maintain a clean toilet and prevent clogs. In the new Aquia IV series, regular height toilets are slightly shorter than the predecessor (5/8 of an inch). If you choose a Universal Height version of an Aquia IV toilet, then there is no change to the updated models.

On top of those fantastic upgraded features, the list pricing on the new Aquia IV series will remain relatively the same!
