Torus™ Watering System for Pets Launches Pink Two-Liter Bowls at 2016 SuperZoo Conference
WELLINGTON, New Zealand (July 15, 2016) – Torus™, the revolutionary pet water bowl system from Heyrex®, is pleased to announce the launch of the two-liter bowl in pink, created due to consumer demand and feedback. The new product will be showcased along with the existing line of Torus products – including the recently added soluble animal health supplements for both cats and dogs, to be used in conjunction with the water bowl systems – at the 2016 SuperZoo Conference, being held August 2-4, 2016 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Named the #1 best-selling dog water bowl in the country, according to Amazon.com’s Cyber Monday results, Torus provides pets with clean, fresh, automatically-dispensed filtered water anytime a pet is thirsty. The Torus pet watering bowls are offered in two sizes – two-liters ($59.95) and one-liter ($54.95) and are available in red, blue, charcoal, and pink. A five-month filter supply can also be purchased for $17.95. Torus is BPA-free, comes with a 12-month warranty and doesn’t require batteries or any other power source – making it completely portable for travel.
- The one-liter bowl has been available in pink since December 2015 and due to its overwhelming popularity, Torus recently added the color to its line of two-liter bowls as well. The pink two-liter bowls will be available via Amazon.com and specialty pet stores in September 2016.
- After additional feedback from trade media and consumers, Torus has updated the packaging for the soluble animal health supplements, which launched in March. The formulations assist with fluid balance, immune support, joint health, and digestive health. The Electrolyte, Immune health, Joint health, and Probiotics products are available in 30 count jars. One or two tablets daily, based on body weight, is all that is required. The cost for the tablets is $39.95. Samples can be ordered for review at SuperZoo.
- Torus currently has more products in development, including its own or proprietary brand products and travel bags. More information about both will be available at the Heyrex Booth, #5201 at SuperZoo.
Where conventional pet water bowls contain a water supply exposed to dirt, reduced by evaporation and spills, Torus (Latin for “hollow circular ring”) stores water inside its reservoir walls to ensure an ample supply of water, protected against dust and contaminates. Each time your pet takes a drink, replacement water automatically flows, filtering the water as it refills, without the need for battery or power supply. When the valve position is set to “lock,” the water is secured inside the walls ready to be transported, and its soft rubber feet and low-profile geometry help reduce mess and spills.
Just recently, Torus received the “Product Innovation of the Year” award from Pet Product Marketing, the “Second Best Care & Accessory Product” award from the Anido Trade Fair for the Pet Care Market in Belgium, a “2016 Vanguard Award” from Pet Insight, and a “2016 Editors’ Choice Award” from Pet Product News. In July, Torus was also featured on “Sundays with Carolyn and Dan” on QVC®.
“We’re looking forward to exhibiting at SuperZoo again this year,” continued Ms. Goldsworthy. “The conference gives us a great opportunity to meet, speak to, and ascertain additional information from both retailers and the media about what pet parents truly want. In turn, that allows us to further innovate and develop what we believe is a completely unique, one-of-a-kind product line.”
