NEW CONDENSATE UNITS JOIN MYERS® FAMILY OF PUMPS


Contractors Asked and Myers Listened - Three New Models
Developed to Meet Most Condensate Removal Needs


ASHLAND, OH – August 2007 – F.E. Myers Pump Company is introducing three automatic condensate pumps in a new line designed to meet 80 percent or more of contractors' condensate removal needs. With this new product offering, Myers is making it simple to find the right condensate pump for most applications, including air-conditioner evaporative coils and high-efficiency condensing gas furnaces and water heaters. In addition, as a result of Myers' superior product engineering, the new pumps deliver twice the flow of comparable competitive models.


A Simple Solution


With a 130-year tradition of delivering a full range of pumps and accessories, Myers consistently delivers innovative, high quality products that meet the needs of plumbing professionals. After deciding to parlay the brand's extensive industry experience into the condensate pump market, Myers first asked contractors for insight into what the trade really needed and learned that the answer was simple: a small selection of quality products to meet their most frequent requirements for condensate removal. In response to this feedback, Myers developed the latest additions to their family of pumps and entered the condensate arena with the MCU15, MCU15S and MCU20S.


First-Class Features


With fully automatic operation and a stronger flow than competitive units, the new Myers condensate pumps easily move liquid condensate from the appliance to a suitable drain or outlet. The pumps feature a tough ABS thermoplastic housing that resists high corrosion and impact, as well as an integrated check valve that prevents liquid condensate backflow into the unit. Additional standard features include a six-foot power cord for flexibility of use and a two-quart tank that helps reduce pump cycling and saves energy. An overflow safety switch is also offered on two of the models, the MCU15S and MCU20S.
