Joseph Watts founded our company in 1874 on the belief that water boilers in textile mills shouldn’t explode. What started with a pressure relief valve in a tiny New England machine shop, has paved the way for today’s high-quality, worldwide water solution technologies. From melting ice on entire city blocks from the ground up, to filtering safe drinking water in isolated, weather disaster zones, you need water and water needs Watts.
The parent company changed from Watts Industries to Watts Water Technologies, Inc. in 2003 to appropriately reflect our focus on water-related solutions. In 2011 the company led the industry during the Lead Free plumbing transition in the U.S.
Though Watts is a parent brand of Febco, we do also use some products that are branded solely by them. They have these brass wye strainers that work really well in certain situations.
