THE RAY HIGH-EFFICIENCY CONDENSING CAST IRON BOILER runs on either propane or natural gas with no conversion kit required. It delivers from 40,000 to 199,000 Btuh at 92.7% AFUE, making it among the most green residential heating appliances available. It features SmartCycle technology, an on-board digital monitoring and control device that learns the most efficient firing rate based on actual use.

THE ISOLAR DIFFERENTIAL TEMPERATURE CONTROLLER is a compact, multi-functional controller for use in a wide array of applications. It features inputs for four sensors, and factory preset defaults able to control a standard solar water heating system with a secondary relay to divert surplus heat. The auxiliary relay can maintain tank temperature, protect the system from overheating, or direct another source to heat the storage tank. A built-in energy meter is able to record energy production of solar hot water. Four different models are available.

THE 4A SERIES BACKFLOW PREVENTERS utilize a “captured spring” check module that makes service easier and requires less space. The result is a more compact design allowing the valves to fit under smaller enclosures. The series includes a double check valve, a reduced pressure zone valve, and pressure vacuum breakers.
Apollo

THE SOLIS FLUSHOMETER is the first solar-powered, sensor-operated flushometer. It uses light to charge a highly efficient capacitor, providing power even in rooms with occupancy-controlled lighting. The solar panel powers the unit without the need for moving parts in the waterway.

THE B-0107 PRE-RINSE SPRAY VALVE conserves water without sacrificing efficiency. A new spray pattern provides low flow with effective cleaning, using an average flow rate of 1.42 GPM and passing the ASTM test with an average cleanability rate of 26 seconds per plate or less.
T&S Brass

THIS LOW-FLOW SHOWERHEAD delivers a full-spray shower experience for the user. Models are offered with a 1.85 GPM spray, a 1.75 GPM spray and, for a 36% water savings over the standard 2.5 GPM showerhead, there is a 1.6 GPM spray. A series of chambers control the shape, velocity and thermal dynamics of the water with no moving internal parts.
