Innovative Bendable Silicone Nozzles for Caulking Guns Creator Joins International World Plumbing Day Celebration


VICTORIA, Australia February, 2013 – The contributions to the plumbing industry do not often receive enough appreciation from society in general. Most people think that plumbers are there to fix pipes and garbage disposals, to unclog sinks and bathtubs, and to repair sanitation systems – and let’s be honest; no one wants to actually think about these tasks being done, so plumbers go unnoticed and unappreciated.

Yet the truth is that plumbers and trades people play a vital role in the health and safety of modern society. The World Plumbing Council, in an effort to celebrate and highlight the important role that plumbing plays in the lives of the general public, has initiated the annual international World Plumbing Day, to be held every March 11.

The World Plumbing Council states on their website: “The aftermath of 2010’s devastating earthquake in Haiti and last year’s tsunami in Japan reveals how easy it is to take for granted the availability of safe drinking water and sufficient sanitation systems… until those systems cease to function properly. History shows that great leaps in humankind’s advancement – both physically and socially – have been tied to advances in plumbing technology.”

This year one Australian plumber and inventor, Alex John, will join the celebration of International World Plumbing Day, where he will share his unique time-saving invention with the world. After 15 years in the plumbing industry Alex John developed bendable silicone nozzles for caulking guns which makes struggling to apply silicone in those hard-to-reach places a thing of the past.

Alex John, the man behind the patented and Australian-made BENT-OVER™ Silicone Nozzles says, “As a plumber I understand how frustrating some of these tricky jobs can be. I wanted to create a flexible silicone nozzle for caulking guns that made my job easier and more time efficient – and help other tradies in the process”

Alex’s invention is quite unique; there is nothing like it on the market today and as such it is attracting attention from many prominent tradespeople, trade companies and trade shows around Australia. BENT-OVER™ Silicone Nozzles are currently in use on many of the largest construction sites in Melbourne and have been embraced as a major advancement in plumbing technology by all who use it. 

The flexible silicone nozzles for caulking guns have several ball joints so they can be bent into various shapes and sizes depending on the current job, and can also be lengthened by removing the nozzle piece or tip and adding the extra ball joints to reach the length that is needed.

The reusable silicone nozzles for caulking guns are designed to be used with a standard caulking gun cartridge but were deliberately made with a smooth interior, making it possible to use all types of sealant products that come in a cartridge.
