For this week’s segment of Invent America, Michael King and the Inventor Lady, Rita Crompton discuss “Cold Weather Inventions” with Ted Butterworth, the inventor of the Bafflecap. Ted started a sprinkler business in 1991, and has over 40 years in the industry. He has designed and installed sprinkler systems from one zone to high-end residential with over 100 zones, commercial buildings, schools and athletic fields, and streetscapes for municipalities in which he helps with proper specs for the installation. At 80% service now and needing to find a way to drain the inside pipe of a sprinkler system, he invented “The Bafflecap” out of household products.

I started my sprinkler business in 1991, and have over 40 years in the industry. I have designed and installed sprinkler systems from one zone to high end residential with over 100 zones, commercial buildings, schools and athletic fields, and streetscapes for municipalities in which I help them with proper spects for the installation. We do 80% service now and had to find a way to drain the inside pipe of a sprinkler system, I made The Bafflecap out of household products for many years, numerous prototypes, and found one that exceeded my expectations. It vented the bottle perfectly and wanted to share this idea with everyone.
