ERIE, PA – Zurn Industries, LLC joins plumbing organizations and their members in recognizing World Plumbing Day (March 11, 2014) with a renewed pledge to continue offering industry-leading solutions that achieve significant water efficiency and sanitary water environments.

The roster of Zurn products that help people use less water and create a sanitary environment includes the Zurn ZTR6203 Flush Valve for urinals–launched on World Plumbing Day in 2013 as the companion product to the ZTR6200 Sensor Flush Valve for water closets introduced the previous year. Other such products include sensor faucets, backflow preventers with leading edge freeze-protection devices, and the Zurn GO BLUE® flush valves.
