The best time of the year has arrived, bringing holidays, pool parties, BBQ’s, backyard tailgates, and more fun. There is nothing better than having friends and family over to enjoy summer festivities and celebrations. The last thing you want to worry about during these precious moments is your home, let alone your plumbing. Knowing that your home is presentable and functionable can give you some peace of mind as summer goes into full swing. Maybe you just got that pool in time for summer and are considering adding an outdoor kitchen or hoping to expand your space inside for hosting by adding a basement bar and an extra bathroom for guests! Avoid weeks of dust and construction and get your home looking and working great by adding some of Zoeller’s best water and waste removal products that don’t require gravity drainage.

Basement renovations can be a fun way to make use of forgotten space and create a great summer hangout spot to beat the heat. Adding a bathroom is often a big consideration during basement makeovers. A main deterrent to adding that bathroom is the toilet. Conventional plumbing installation can be costly and take months. Zoeller created an alternative to traditional plumbing by introducing two Qwik Jon® Upflush Systems that allow you to install a bathroom without a gravity drain or breaking concrete. The Qwik Jon Premier is a quiet, preassembled ½ HP grinder pump system that requires minimal space for installation. With its Tri-Slice® Technology of 250,000 cuts per minute, the Qwik Jon will handle toilet paper, organic waste and sanitary items. The Qwik Jon Choice is a quiet, preassembled 1/3 HP macerator system designed strictly for residential use, handling human waste and toilet tissue only. Whether the Qwik Jon Choice or Qwik Jon Premier is best for you, both can be installed behind your toilet or behind the wall with Zoeller’s extension kit and are efficient and cost-friendly options to create the basement of your dreams. There’s no need to waste months and thousands of dollars on conventional plumbing when you can install a freestanding Qwik Jon unit just like that!

This Fall, Zoeller is launching the brand new Qwik Jon Premier High-Water Alarm. The Qwik Alarm is a battery power, audible alarm that will alert you when the tank water level is too high. The alarm has a smooth white polypropylene case that is easy to clean and maintains the low profile, compact design of the Qwik Jon. Have peace of mind knowing your Premier is being monitored 24/7 with the Qwik Alarm.

And how about a kitchen or bar? Whether it’s a basement bar or an addition to an outdoor kitchen, the Drain Pump Series is the perfect solution for water removal where gravity flow is not available. And the options don’t stop there! The Drain Pump Series is also great for laundry trays, lavatories, air conditioning condensate and humidifiers. It also can be used in conjunction with dishwashers and garbage disposals. The Drain Pump is a low profile, easy installing option that requires no digging or mess. Each drain pump comes with an automatic pump, corrosion-resistant basin, gasket-sealed polypropylene lid, and gas-tight cover. Customize the drain pump for your needs, with several automatic pump options with warranties up to 5 years as well as an internal trap installation option for saving space. Each drain pump is 100% factory tested and has no inlet filters or screens to clean so you be at ease knowing your fixtures will be safe, clean, and running efficiently.

No Breaking Concrete
