Milwaukee Tool Modular Pipeline Inspection System
The Modular Pipeline Inspection System from Milwaukee Tool features 1080p high-definition, self-leveling camera heads that can zoom up to four times and pan, making it possible to see more in drainlines than before. The system is built around the M18 500 GB Control Hub, compatible with either the 120- or 200-foot pipeline inspection reels. For viewing, recording, editing and sharing, technicians can choose between the M18 Wireless Monitor for simplicity and maximum durability, or a mobile device with the Milwaukee Pipeline Inspection app for clearer image and faster sharing. Equipped with an 800-by-600-pixel, 8-inch daylight-readable screen, the M18 Wireless Monitor provides a clear, sharp image whether on a roof or in a basement. 800-729-3878; www.milwaukeetool.com.

MicroSepTec EnviroServer ES Series
MicroSepTec added five additional sizes of its EnviroServer ES Series to NSF certification. The new sizes of the residential wastewater treatment system include: 5-foot-diameter ES6 (600 gpd); 5-foot-diameter ES4.5 (450 gpd); and 6-foot-diameter ES7.5 (750 gpd). The ES12 (1,200 gpd) and ES25 (2,500 gpd) are still available, but the 6-foot ES6 will be phased out. The EnviroServer ES residential moving-bed biological reactor is in a self-contained single tank, so it requires minimal excavation which reduces installation costs and it can be installed in lots with space constraints. The tank leaves a very small footprint, which can be camouflaged with flagstone, fake rocks, and more while maintaining easy access for future maintenance of the system. There are no large, unsightly boxes or lids visible in the landscape. The tank can also be installed in traffic-rated situations with minimal special requirements. 877-473-7842; www.microseptec.com.

Rinnai Demand Duo R-Series commercial hybrid water heating system

Sold in 80- or 119-gallon tank options, the Demand Duo R-Series eliminates the need for new vent penetrations. The pre-installed drip leg and 36-inch Swivel-Flex Gas Line also creates material efficiencies and reduces install time with a pre-installed electrical junction box and duplex outlet. The digital controller, which comes with the product, also allows management of building recirculation without having to purchase an additional aquastat. 800-621-9419; www.rinnai.us.

Flomatic Model 48 drain-back plug
The Model 48 drain-back plug from Flomatic is for submersible pump water well installations. The reusable plug is designed to drain the riser pipe, and is activated when a weight is dropped into the well drop pipe. The plunger is stroked by the weight and opens the valve, which returns to its closed position when the drop weight is removed. The Model 48 is NSF 372 certified, and it is designed in all-stainless-steel construction with Buna-N resilient seating. It can be easily replaced in the field, helps eliminate water splashing at the surface, and prevents potential cross-contamination of the water well. The spring-loaded valve threads into a 1-inch pipe tee. By utilizing the drain-back valve, the pulling of pipe and pump becomes much easier and safer, reducing the pulling weight between 20 to 50%. 800-833-2040; www.flomatic.com.
