Water main breaks represent a major problem for management agencies. Expenses may increase due to pipe repair or replacement operations. However, it is possible to prevent certain types of breaks by using quality materials. A critical element of the network is the junction point between the two pipes, for this reason it is very important to use certified and reliable fittings. In this article we will deal with compression fittings and how to recognize their quality.

The compliance of compression fittings with regulatory and hygienic requirements, such as passing mechanical tests and suitability for contact with drinking water, is required by many countries around the world.

To guarantee a high quality standard, the most reputable producers offer products on the market that are certified by accredited third parties who, through periodic supervisory visits and laboratory tests, determine and ensure that the required quality standards are maintained over time. Among the best known and most appreciated international bodies are: DVGW, KIWA and WRAS.


We hereby notify you of the current recertification process under which the Membrane Tanks models we recently launched for Latin America are currently undergoing, in accordance with the WRAS (Water Regulations Advisory Scheme) standard of the United Kingdom.

The recertification process is underway and as soon as it is completed, we will reflect this information again in the applicable materials. We thank you in advance for your understanding and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

STAR WARS – Episode II: Attack of the Clones

A Separatist attack then began and the CAR ordered Echo and Cincos to head to a bridge to act as snipers. Echo and Cincos obeyed and headed for the bridge. On the bridge, Echo and Cincos used their guns to shoot down nearby droids. Then 99 visited the two clones and resupplied them with ammunition and thermal detonators. Then more combat droids stormed the area, but were destroyed when Echo dropped a detonator on them. Not long after, a squad of clone cadets approached Echo, Fives and 99. When the squad told the clone troopers that they had become separated from their group of clone cadets, 99 offered to take them back to the city barracks.

Both Echo and Fives left the bridge where they were with 99 and the clone cadets, and headed for the barracks. Once there, Clone Commander Cody and Captain Rex joined the group, and urged them to fight the droids. The clone cadets, however, did not want to fight, because their training was insufficient. Echo tried to boost the confidence of the clone cadets by saying that Kamino was their home, and they should defend it.
