Hydra-Stops’ Insta-Valve 250 Insertion Valve has been nominated for the 2018 Edison Awards. Named after Thomas Edison, The Edison Awards recognize excellence in new product and service development, marketing, human-centered design, and innovation. Winners will be presented at the 2018 Edison Awards in New York, NY on April 11, 2018.
“We are honored the Insta-Valve 250 is recognized for its leading-edge innovation,” said Christopher Vazzana, CEO. “It is the latest illustration of Hydra-Stop’s ongoing commitment to help municipalities manage, maintain and provide solutions for aging water systems.”
The Insta-Valve 250 is a safer, more economical way of installing valves into a water distribution system, under pressure, without service disruption. The Insta-Valve stops flow in most types of pipe, from 4″ to 12″ in diameter, and is used in potable water, wastewater, and industrial applications.
The Hydra-Stop system eliminates these types of shutdowns and provides control for a water district. This solution saves 40-50% of the total cost of maintenance for a municipality and greatly stretches their limited budgets.
