Turning Objections Around

In today’s economy, it is harder than ever to get appointments with people who actually have the money or credit to buy water equipment. That is why it is a shame to see salespeople who do not try as hard as they can to get the sales from these golden opportunities. This article is taken from coaching calls I performed for clients and actual sales situations and objections that came up around the country.

Certifying for Contaminant Reduction

Heptachlor epoxide, trichloroethane, aesthetic chlorine, acrylonitrile, TDS, xylenes, lead, arsenic, hexachlorocyclopentadiene … Certainly, some of the chemicals listed above are recognizable not only to you but also to the average consumer.

Reducing Costs for Reducing Arsenic

“Arsenic Found in Groundwater.” How many times have you seen that headline? There is no doubt that arsenic has become a common household term, used not only by teenagers studying the periodic table but also by adults who have long forgotten their high school chemistry classes.

In the last 10 years, arsenic has made headlines for various reasons. Most deal with human exposure and its associated risks.  

Arsenic is present in natural deposits in the earth. It can enter drinking water supplies from these deposits or from agricultural and industrial activities.
