Pentair plc has bought Be the Change Labs Inc, which does business as Rocean, a provider of counter top filtration solutions.

Rocean’s smart filtration devices help reduce the need for single use plastic bottles in homes and businesses.

“This acquisition further advances our strategy to expand our core water treatment products in the residential and commercial water business and allows us to continue serving customers in new ways, while also supporting our efforts to create a more sustainable future,” said Mario D’Ovidio, executive vice president and president, Pentair Consumer Solutions. “Together, we can connect people to great water in the home, on the go and around the world.”

The Rocean One was given a Special Mention in Time magazine’s recent Best Inventions of 2020 list.
