It’s All About the Service

Honest, trustworthy, courteous—the three rules that every water service technician should follow.” This statement has lingered in the back of my head since I met with Ronald Gagnon CWS-IV, CI, an experienced dealer and owner of Aqua-Pure Water Conditioning, Inc. in Zion, Ill.

Industrial Fouling

Look at the heating element of a washing machine or dishwasher in a hard water area and you will see a white encrustation containing hardness salts. This commonly is referred to as limescale and is an example of domestic fouling.
Industrial fouling poses a far greater problem than anything in the domestic sector. Huge volumes of fouled fluids are handled, and the systems that contain the fluids can become fouled as well. The quality of water streams used by industry varies widely and gives rise to numerous fouling problems.

Softeners Treat Truck Wash Water

When it comes to keeping their big rigs clean and sparkling, most truck drivers are as particular about a good wash as any car owner might be—maybe even more particular considering the dollars some have wrapped up in their 18-wheelers. Owners of large vehicle fleets such as buses and delivery trucks seem to appreciate the value a clean machine has in properly projecting their corporate image. During winter months in many northern states, just cleaning off road salt and sand is imperative to vehicle maintenance.

Are You Putting Your Customers at Risk?

Being knowledgable about various technologies as well as honest and thorough when assessing and/or installing systems will benefit you in the long runAs participants in any industry or organization, regardless of our level or position, the responsibilities we meet or fail to meet are the true barometers of our success. I often wonder if the water treatment industry recognizes the capacity it has to impact people in such an important task as the provision of safe, clean and appealing water. And talk about an impact, what if we do our jobs incorrectly?
