Our mission is simple:
Create a better way to access water.
Aquor Water Systems was created with a vision to re-invent the way people access their water. Our most precious resource, fresh water, is becoming increasingly scarce. With unprecedented droughts occurring worldwide, many regions are scrambling to enact emergency water conservation laws to protect their dwindling supply.
While plumbing and homebuilding products have vastly improved over the last few decades, the most common source of leaks (the outdoor tap) has remained unchanged for over 100 years. We set out to create a device that was not only more efficient, but also easier to use and more durable too.
At the apex of form and function, the Aquor House Hydrant was born.
The House Hydrant was adapted from a patented marine deck wash outlet that was first developed in 1999. On boats, features like the flush-mounted faceplate and twist-lock connection were especially important to prevent injuries and water leaks. The deck wash valve has been installed in over 100,000 marine vessels worldwide since then, from wooden sailboats to 150 foot mega-yachts.
As the deck wash outlet grew in popularity, we realized just how reliable the twist-lock connection was. It could withstand harsh saltwater conditions and frequent use for years with nearly zero maintenance, while still being easier to use than a standard threaded hose connection.
In 2014, we began adapting the outlet for use on homes. Our goal was to create the ultimate “no-compromise” hose bib; one that was easier to use, more durable, more eco-friendly, and better looking than anything on the market.
Key design elements such as the stainless steel body and flush-mount design were transferred over from the marine version, and features such as freeze protection and automatic drainage were added for homes. After consulting with dozens of plumbers, homebuilders, and engineers, we’ve managed to create a water access point that performs unlike any other.
Headquartered in Seattle, our team joined forces while at the University of Washington and has been on a mission to change how people access their water ever since. At Aquor, our goal is to create beautiful, efficient products that you’ll actually enjoy using.
