Pentair Showcases Water Reuse, Treatment and Management Solutions at Singapore International Water Week

Global Manufacturer Offers Unique Solutions for Sustainable Management of Water
SINGAPORE - June 1, 2014 - Pentair is showcasing its latest innovations and
integrated solutions for the reuse, treatment and management of water at
Singapore International Water Week (SIWW), June 1 - 5, 2014. The company, a
global water, fluid, thermal management and equipment protection partner, has a
long history in Singapore of providing technologies in water treatment and

"At Pentair, we help customers do more with available water, whether it's
filtering drinking water, treating wastewater for reuse or the safe return to
the environment, and helping to manage bodies of water," said Dr. Phil Rolchigo,
Pentair's Vice President of Technology. "Our work with PUB, Singapore's national
water agency, demonstrates how our technologies can help address water
challenges, and we are honored to collaborate with PUB on these endeavors."

Pentair Technologies at Work in Singapore
As a land-scarce country with limited water resources, Singapore has long
recognized the importance of developing and maximizing its water resources to
sustain its economic growth and modern lifestyle of its citizens. One example is
the Marina Barrage, a dam built across the 350-meter wide Marina Channel to keep
out seawater and boost Singapore's water supply by creating the first reservoir
in the city. Beyond these functions, the freshwater lake is also a lifestyle
attraction in itself, offering a host of recreational activities for all to

Pentair's flood control pumps are utilized in the Marina Barrage to help manage
the water level in the freshwater reservoir. Each of these pumps provide a
maximum pumping capacity of 40 cubic meters per second, which equates to
emptying an Olympic-sized swimming pool in less than a minute.

More recently, Pentair's ultrafiltration (UF) membrane technology was installed
in the national water agency PUB's Lower Seletar Waterworks. The facility is
PUB's first drinking water treatment facility to use Pentair's inside-out UF
membrane filtration system. Compared to traditional filtration processes, UF
membranes require a smaller footprint while producing drinking water that meets
high drinking water standards.

Water Leaders Summit
Sharing and co-creating innovative water solutions such as these is a focus of
SIWW. A pillar event of SIWW is the Water Leaders Summit, which brings together
international water leaders to identify and discuss crucial global water issues
and solutions. Leading figures, including Pentair's Dr. Rolchigo, will come
together to discuss how water players can work with utilities to manage water
sustainably, climate change adaptation, and the expanding role of water
management in ensuring a liveable and sustainable future.
