RectorSeal Plumber's Mate Press Release

Plumber’s Mate is a convenient alternative to rags, paper towels and containers during faucet, toilet, water heater and other plumbing and hydronic HVAC repairs

RectorSeal® LLC, Houston, a leading manufacturer of quality plumbing and HVAC/R products, introduces Plumber’s Mate®, a patented ultra-absorbent utility pad designed for plumbers and HVAC hydronic technicians to protect property from damaging jobsite water drips, spills and accidents during installation and repairs.

The Plumber’s Mate 8.25 (H) x 7.5 (W) x 2.5 (D)-inch (21 x 19 x 6-mm) plastic bag packaging includes six absorbent pads that each unfold to 24 x 24-inches (61 x 61-mm) for placement under potential water drips and spills. Each pad is constructed of three-pieces: 1) dry touch top layer; 2) dynamic liquid containment layer that uses SuperCore technology to hold up to one quart (0.9-liter) of water; and 3) a leak and waterproof protective plastic layer back sheet, that prevents moisture contact with floors and molding.

Plumber’s Mate is a neat, clean, convenient and disposable alternative to rags, paper towels and cumbersome catch-all containers when working in cramped areas of dishwashers, sink cabinets, water heaters, washing machines and toilet supply lines. Besides service work, Plumber’s Mate is ideal as a temporary protectant under slow dripping supply water sources until permanent repairs can be made.

Other Plumber’s Mate features include:

  • Available in cases of seven 6-packs;
  • Perfect solution for drying hard-to-drain toilet tanks before repairs;
  • S. patent number 6,675,702 B1;
  • Uses the same three-piece technology as hospital-grade bed pads;
  • Made in the USA with domestic and foreign-manufactured materials.

Plumber’s Mate is available at most plumbing and HVAC trade wholesale distributors. Individual packages can be displayed on J-hook merchandisers or cases can be opened into branded, sleeved cardboard counter displays.
