Our Story

We are MTR Wholesale, Inc., owner of The Original Safety Siphon. The Original Safety Siphon is headquartered in Greensburg, PA. Our check valves are manufactured in Hollsopple, PA near Somerset, PA (approximately 90 miles east of Pittsburgh, PA). Our fulfillment center and shipping warehouse is located in Hollsopple, PA as well.

The Original Safety Siphon history dates back to the 1970's. The first owner and creator of the 1/2” siphon was from Australia. They brought the company over to the United States in the 1980's. The siphon was then called “Syphon Mate.” They sold the company to George Hardwick out of San Antonio, TX. George owned the company from 1988 till January 2015.

It was in January 2015 when I became the new owner of Safety Siphon. In 2015, I changed the name from Safety Siphon to The Original Safety Siphon. In March of 2016, we were officially registered with the trademark office under the name The Original Safety Siphon. Since then, it's been my privilege to continue the legacy as the new owner of The Original Safety Siphon. Although the names Safety Siphon and now The Original Safety Siphon are related and part of the same family, our commitment has never changed. Our goal has always been to provide the world's best, easiest, and safest way to transfer liquids.

As the current owner, we have expanded our product line. In addition to the 1/2” siphon, we now offer the 3/8”, ¾, and 1” siphons. We offer two (2) lengths. The siphons now are available in 6' and 10' lengths. We have expanded our accessories line. We upgraded our raw materials (100% lead free copper, industrial strength glass ball, 100% stainless steel spring). We redesigned the spring for more efficiency. We upgraded our hoses. Our hoses now consist of virgin grade resin, no fillers, and are FDA food grade safe.

Although there are “knockoff versions” out there, no one can match the quality of The Original Safety Siphon.

For the past 40 years, our siphon is widely regarded as the best siphon in the world that doesn't require electricity. Just a few shakes is all that is needed to start the siphon. As they say, "It works like Magic."

We are proud to say "The Original Safety Siphon is 100% made and manufactured here in the United States."

Our staff is here to assist you with any questions you might have about our product. We welcome your questions and comments.

If it doesn't say, “Safety Siphon Made in U.S.A.” on the check valve, it is not "The Original Safety Siphon."
