ST. PAUL, Minn., Apr 30, 2002 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX/ -- Pentair (NYSE: PNR) today announced that its Pentair Water Treatment business has been appointed the exclusive distributor of T&T-brand pumps for reverse osmosis (RO) water purification applications. Based in Fairmont, W.Va., T&T Pumps is a leading brand of high performance pumps used in RO applications.

"Pentair Water Treatment already provides the global RO water purification market with a broad product line, including CodeLine membrane housings, Fleck control valves, and Structural pressure vessels.
