A Radiant and Service Replacement Pump for Residential Contractors
Hershey, PA May 22, 2007 - In a major announcement made today Taco, Inc. introduced two new 3-speed circulator pumps for residential contractors - a radiant pump and a service pump. The two pumps were unveiled at a press conference held at the National Association of Oil Heating Service Managers (NAOHSM) Convention & Trade Show.
Taco's new 3-speed pumps come in radiant and service models.
Each of the two pumps incorporate three speeds (low-medium-high) allowing contractors to fine tune pump speeds to the job application at hand. For radiant applications the 00R 3-Speed Radiant Pump's 3-speed switching capability provides fine tuning control to match a wide combination of tube diameters and length of runs. With the 0010 3-Speed Service Pump contractors set the speed to match the performance of the pump being replaced.
Taco 3-Speed pump offerings have been designed to provide residential contractors with convenient and easy to install water circulation solutions. The 00R Radiant Pump, with its high performance motor and highest starting torque in its class, meets the needs of the fast growing radiant heating market, and the all-purpose 0010 Service Pump, with its four-bolt flange, matches up to any pump on the market to provide contractors with one replacement pump for "no heat" service calls - especially handy when those calls occur after hours.
Both pumps are made of heavy duty cast iron and contain Taco's replaceable, self-lubricating, stainless steel cartridge design. They also come with Taco's removable high-flow Integral Flow Check (IFC®) to maximize flow while simultaneously preventing gravity flow, even in the tallest buildings. Use of the IFC also reduces installation costs.
"These two new three-speed pumps are what the contractor market has been asking for," says Robert Coons, Taco's Senior Vice President - Residential. "We went through a very deliberate and thorough discovery and design process in developing these new products. When we say it's all about our customers, these new pumps are great examples of that - Taco has delivered what its customers want and depend on."
The 0010 Service Pump replaces most commonly used circulators, regardless of age, style or size. The 00R Radiant Pump is a direct replacement for the Grundfos UPS 15-58 3-Speed Pump.
