Popular Mechanics honors ITT water pump with Editor's Choice AwardJune 02, 2011
ITT Corporation's AquaCharge portable, rechargeable water pump recently earned an Editor's Choice Award from Popular Mechanics Magazine. The magazine honored the company and its product at the 2011 National Hardware Show in Las Vegas.
The publication's Editor's Choice awards recognize products that demonstrate outstanding achievements in innovation and design. AquaCharge was one of 12 products -- selected from thousands of exhibitors -- to receive the awards.
Roy Berendsohn, the magazine's senior home editor, said that the award criteria include innovation, value, and usefulness. "AquaCharge more than meets those criteria on all counts," he said. The winning products go beyond gadgets -- in fact, they substantially improve on or add value to existing designs, Berendsohn added.
Leaking and overflowing water is one of the most common causes of household damage. The AquaCharge provides a reliable, fast and effective way to remove standing water. Plus, the pump is compact, lightweight and useful for home, marine and recreational applications.
