Founded in 1874 by Joseph Watts, Watts Regulator Company, as we were originally known, made its reputation by "Setting the Standard in Valve Technology." During those early days, our Company manufactured pressure reducing valves to regulate steam. It also manufactured relief valves to ensure safe operation of water heaters and boilers. In the early 1900s, it introduced the revolutionary combination temperature and pressure (T&P) relief valve, a protective device for use in hot water supply tank systems. These T&P valves prevented dangerous hot water heater explosions and continue to be an integral part of today's water heating systems.

In the 1960s, our Company entered the international market, opening manufacturing plants in Canada and the United Kingdom. Since then, Watts Water has greatly expanded its international presence.
In the 1970s, Watts Water entered the new and promising backflow prevention market. Backflow preventers were developed to prevent the backward flow of contaminated water into the potable water supply. These devices have become one of our most successful product lines, and Watts Water continues to lead this market today.
In 1984, Watts Water began a series of acquisitions of both U.S. and foreign valve companies and valve product lines to complement our core products. Such acquisitions are now an on-going component of our strategy to provide customers with the most innovative flow control solutions that current technologies can offer.
During the booming 1990's, Watts aggressively expanded into the retail sales market with the formation of the Consumer Products Division. This end-user-focused division manages the marketing of all Watts products to large retailers and hardware store chains that sell directly to the consumer.
During this time Watts also acquired certification in the International Standards Organization (ISO) 9001 for our commitment to quality in design, development, production, installation, and servicing of our products.
At the end of that decade, Watts spun off its industrial oil and gas business as a separate company named CIRCOR International, Inc. in order to more closely focus our resources on providing our customers with innovative plumbing & heating and water quality products.
With this renewed focus, Watts Water Technologies, Inc., as we are now known, has expanded our traditional flow control product lines to include water purification, radiant heat and instrumentation products to address all of the flow control needs of the worldwide plumbing & heating and water quality markets.This broad array of products, designed to ensure Comfort , Quality, Conservation, Safety and Control, enables many of our customers to purchase all of their plumbing & heating and water quality flow control solutions from one source.
Thus, from a small machine shop supplying parts to the textile mills of the 19th century, Watts Water Technologies, Inc. has grown into an international manufacturer of Innovative Water Solutions for the plumbing & heating, and water quality markets.
