A Doctor's Prescription

In the early 1980s, Bob Hoey earned his certification as both a Water Quality Assn. Certified Water Specialist and Certified Sales Representative. He said he was the only person in the Twin Cities market at the time to have both those certifications, and people started to take notice.

"People started jokingly calling me the water doctor," he said, "so I started working that angle, put up a logo and acquired a phone number with our name."
