The RIDGID NXT line of 6-, 12-, 14- and 16-gallon models underwent an ergonomic makeover, with enhanced features designed to make job site cleanup even easier.

RIDGID NXT line of wet/dry vacs
The RIDGID NXT line of 6-, 12-, 14- and 16-gallon models underwent an ergonomic makeover, with enhanced features designed to make job site cleanup even easier. Redesigned features include a front-to-back top carry handle for comfortable grab-and-go manueverability and added comfort-grip side handles for extra ease in lifting, carrying or emptying the vac. They also have a new drum key and side latches that create a tighter lid-to-drum seal to securely keep dirt, dust and debris inside the vac. A larger on/off switch makes for easier operation with gloved hands and there is a built-in cord wrap to more neatly store the cord for transport. 800-769-7743; www.ridgid.com.

Viega PureFlow PEX pipe and fittings
Viega PureFlow PEX pipe and fittings have been listed by Underwriter Laboratories as approved for use in exposed fire sprinkler systems in basements. The UL listings mean the PEX pipe and fittings can be used throughout an entire residential fire sprinkler system. The listing eliminates the need to join it to pipe of another material in the basement. PureFlow can be installed and left exposed in wood and across finished ceiling assemblies when certain conditions are met. The corrosion-free fire sprinkler system has an easy-to-use alignment bracket that eliminates the need for measuring when hanging pendants. 800-976-9819; www.viega.us.
