Acing the Test

Approximately 30 million Americans get their drinking water from private household wells. Protection of private wells does not fall under the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Safe Drinking Water Act, so well owners must take it upon themselves to ensure their water quality. To keep water clean and pure and the well operating at peak performance, regular water testing is an important maintenance tool.

Alternative Applications

In my previous article, “Ultrafiltration: A Business Growth Opportunity” (September 2013), I referenced a 2010 BBC research report stating that “the U.S. market for ultrafiltration (UF) technologies was worth $940 million in 2010. It is estimated to be valued at $1.24 billion by 2015.”1 Simply put, the business opportunities for UF are growing rapidly, which could prove extremely profitable for the savvy professional water dealer.

A Bang for Your Co-Op Buck

According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, a co-op, or cooperative, is an enterprise or organization owned by and operated for the benefit of those using its services. As a business owner using a co-op for advertising, it is not always easy to maximize your benefits. There often are regulations to follow, including which logo sizes and media to use, plus exclusivity if you want to get the full financial reimbursement for your effort. Then, when you fulfill all the requirements, you still only receive 50% of your advertising spend.
