How It Came to Be 

In the 1960s, the industry rapidly transitioned from traditional copper and galvanized piping systems to modern plastic pipe and fittings. This change brought opportunities for innovators to introduce products that would make plastic piping systems more reliable and easier to install. Thanks to decades of experience with these emerging technologies, Tom Christy, the founder, saw an opportunity in the early 1970s. He saw the unmet need for a practical solvent that would work well in adverse conditions commonly encountered by professional contractors. By working closely with professionals "in the trenches," Christy perfected a solvent that was perfect for working in wet and muddy conditions, cold and damp weather, and even in high productivity environments. It led to the birth of Tom Christy's exclusive Red Hot Blue Glue. And now, it is the number one contractor-rated irrigation solvent on the market! Other top products of the company include Adhesives and Sealants and Primers and Cements.
