For this week’s segment of Invent America, Michael King and co-host Rita Crompton welcome inventor Mike Acosta to discuss “How To Pick the Best Tradeshow?” Acosta is the inventor of Mikey’s Quick Coupler, a 2-Piece coupler for replacing broken nuts on plastic pipe. Voted “Most Innovative Product in the Pool Industry” in 2021, Acosta has been featured on many pool podcasts and has been invited to speak with many Pool Repair groups.
” I’m Mike Acosta, and I have designed a 2-Piece coupler, for replacing broken nuts, on Plastic Pipe. In 2021 my Coupler was Voted “Most Innovative Product in the Pool Industry” I have been featured on many Pool Podcasts, and invited to speak with many Pool Repair groups. I’ve also attended many National Pool shows. For years we have cut PVC Pipe, and pulled the original nut off then, put a new one on, then glued everything back together. With my 2-piece design, there is no need to cut pipe, or re-plumb. Mine goes on in just a minute. it takes longer to break the old, broken one off. Currently I have 6- sizes, mostly used on Pool Equipment, and I have Plans to build more sizes. With this design I can build for any irrigation system. In-ground sprinkler systems, water systems in homes, or industrial use. At this time, I sell online, through my website, and they are being used across the U.S. and Canada. I do have them in stores in the Phoenix area., and get great reviews on Instagram and Facebook. I love seeing Pool repair guys using my product and thanking me for building this, and most ask me to keep building more sizes.”
