Product Certification: Proof of Quality

In my former position as a sales representative for the Water Quality Assn. (WQA), I sometimes heard my clients refer to certification for water treatment products as a “necessary evil.” How unfortunate it is, I thought, that some clients think of product certification in the same vein as filing taxes, registering a vehicle or making a rent payment—things we endure because we have no other option.

I have been blessed in that I have had the privilege to work with many of the “founding fathers” who shaped our industry, and have been given the opportunity to work with and hopefully mentor future leaders as well.

Ethics & Customer Service

Consumers are becoming more aware of water quality and contamination issues than ever, and international markets are growing by leaps and bounds each year. Technologies are developing rapidly as well—rarely does a day go by that my email inbox does not receive a press release describing a new treatment method or application of technology.
