PORTAGE, Mich., May 23, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Is your dad a "do-it-yourself" kind of dad? A mechanic-in-the-making? Does he love the outdoors, and is he looking to save money? The LiquiVac™ Oil Change System is a functional and unique gift for dads knee-deep in grass clippings. It's an innovative product that sucks oil out of lawn mowers for a quick, clean, economical, and eco-friendly oil change.
"Most lawn mower manufacturers recommend changing a mower's oil every 25 to 50 hours, depending on the amount of debris in the environment," says Barry Kearns, inventor of the LiquiVac™. "The LiquiVac accomplishes this effortlessly and economically, as the average cost of an oil change is between 10 and 20 dollars and involves transporting lawn mowers to and from maintenance shops. It's a quick, clean, and convenient DIY project for just about any dad."
The LiquiVac™ efficiently extracts oil in most small 4-cycle engines within seconds, including lawn mowers, tillers, generators, as well as ATVs, boats, jet-skis and more. It creates a powerful vacuum that draws oil from an engine and into a plastic holding tank --- in an easy, convenient, 4-step process. To extract the oil, simply 1) close the cap's valve; 2) insert the extraction hose through the engine dipstick tube; 3) pump the handle 20 times to create a vacuum within the tank; and 4) open the cap's valve. The oil is then extracted directly into a durable holding tank, which can be easily transported to an oil collection center, where recycled oil can be reprocessed for use in furnaces and power plants, or re-refined into lubricating base oils for use in formulating engine oils.
LiquiVac™ also just recently launched a new resource website (www.liquivac.com) for users, which includes how-to demonstration videos, actual LiquiVac user videos, an application to locate oil recycling facilities and retailers, and multiple product testimonials. All LiquiVac™ Oil Change System products are Made in the U.S.A. and are available at Lowe's®, Home Depot®, the Tractor Supply Co.®, Northern Tool + Equipment®, and Do It Best®. The product is also available online at www.liquivac.com.
