Aquatic Life Wins Two Best of 2011 Awards from MarineDepot.com
Premium aquatic product provider recognized for Best New Product and Best Warranty
COMMERCE, CA (November 21, 2011) – Aquatic Life, LLC, a leading provider of premium aquarium products, took home two Best of 2011 Awards from MarineDepot.com, the world’s largest aquarium supply store. The company won Best New Product for its RO/DI 4-Stage Power 200 GPD Professional Water Purification System, as well as Best Warranty.
Aquatic Life is one of twelve winners presented with beveled teardrop-shaped awards during the world’s largest aquarium expo, Reef-A-Palooza, Oct. 22-23, at the OC Fair Grounds in Costa Mesa, Calif. More than 170 brands from across the globe were considered for the MarineDepot.com Best of Awards, which recognize aquarium supply manufacturers and products that have demonstrated outstanding performance throughout a one-year period.
“It is an honor to be named among the aquatic industry’s elite not once, but twice,” said Michael Elliott, Aquatic Life co-owner. “It feels great to be recognized for building quality equipment and putting the customer first.”
Product winners were selected based upon key performance metrics including sales volume, Internet searches, website searches and customers rankings. The Best Warranty was based upon the strength, length and level of support offered by the manufacturer combined with the brand’s return rate and MarineDepot.com’s own call center data.
Aquatic Life’s reverse osmosis/deionization (RO/DI) 4-Stage Power Systems remove harmful substances such as heavy metal ions and total dissolved solids from tap water. The patented top-loading canister design makes it easy to check and replace cartridges. Each unit includes non-marring feet for freestanding placement and a heavy-duty bracket for convenient wall mounting. Additionally, the system features a built-in computer, which manages automatic backflushing of membrane to prolong its useful life, as well as digital display alerts to notify when the unit has filled a container and valve has shut-off.
The company’s Lifetime Fixture Guarantee is the first of its kind in the aquatic industry. Under the lifetime repair policy, all labor will be performed free-of-charge for any new or used light fixture manufactured by Aquatic Life for consumer use. The lifetime policy is in addition to the standard 12-month limited warranty and applies to any light fixture that is not considered beyond repair (where the cost of replacement parts exceeds the cost of replacing the fixture).
