**Conquers Water Woes Anytime, Anywhere**
GLOUCESTER, MA – Flooded laundry rooms, overflowing toilets, and aquariums with dirty water are no match for Rule-Industries’ AquaCharge™, the new portable and rechargeable water pump from ITT Flow Control.
“Overflowing or leaking water is one of the most common causes of household damage; but, not all emergencies require a plumber if you have the right tools at hand,” explains Gina Arnone, Marketing Manager for the Innovation Lab at ITT Flow Control. “AquaCharge is a dependable and portable water pump that equips consumers with an immediate solution for excess water removal.”
AquaCharge is a compact 7˝ by 3.25˝ by 5.5˝ and lightweight 3.6 pounds. It is ideal for a wide range of home applications including routine hot tub cleanings, and aquarium, clogged sink, toilet, wet basement, and laundry room draining. It is also equally effective in removing water from small marine craft such as kayaks, dinghies, canoes, and sailboats.
The portable AquaCharge runs on a safe, low voltage battery, which is fully submersible and can be used to pump out fresh or salt water. It includes a submersible pump, eight-foot hose, rechargeable NiMH battery, and charging station. AquaCharge also connects to any standard garden hose; and, with a 200-gallon per charge pump capacity, it resolves household water mishaps easily with the simple twist of a switch.
AquaCharge is available online and through select retailers nationwide and retails for an estimated $89.00 (MSRP). Visit www.aquachargepump.com for more information.
