U.S. Made EcoWater Branded Product vs. Other Water Conditioners
If you are considering a domestic water treatment solution, you may have already conducted a little online research into your options. Chances are you are a bit overwhelmed with the myriad of choices available and perhaps you are having difficulty choosing between EcoWater conditioners, which are all made in the USA by EcoWater itself (the only manufacturer to do so in the industry), and other water conditioner companies that contract out the making of their various components to third parties, frequently not even here in America.
The difference between buying “assembled product” from other water conditioner companies and EcoWater Designed and Manufactured Product for the Dealer Channel.
Before you make any final decision, you should be aware of the differences in order to make an informed and smart choice.
About EcoWater Systems:
One of the main reasons so many consumers around the world opt for an EcoWater designed and manufactured product is that EcoWater basically invented the industry and the modern day softener, as we know it. The original company actually has its origins going back to the early part of the 20th century when founder engineer, Lynn G. Lindsay Sr. was issued the first patent by the USPTO for an automatic water softener in September of 1925. As the company grew steadily through the 30’s, with indoor plumbing and the eventual use of washing machines fueling the market for residential softeners in the U.S., EcoWater became a dominant force in the space.
Today, EcoWater Systems, a business unit of Warren Buffet’s famed Berkshire Hathaway, sets the industry standards for R&D around the globe, making and selling more softeners than any other company on the planet. The applied research and technology advancements made by EcoWater Systems, in fact, have led to hundreds of patents including the Rotary Flow Control Valve, the Stratified Resin Bed, the Hydrolink Two Way Remote and the Hydrolink Plus Wi-Fi App. EcoWater has also the distinction of being the first manufacturer to utilize modern, solid-state electronics for the control of residential water treatment products, raising efficiencies to new levels.
Assurance of Quality:
While you may be able to buy a variety of water treatment solutions at any home improvement store, these products are likely to lack the EcoWater assurance of quality and durability. EcoWater is a member of the WQA Water Quality Association, which is an international, 3rd party, brand agnostic, non-profit trade association which represents residential, industrial and commercial water treatment professionals and manufacturers in the industry. The WQA performs extensive tests on all water treatment equipment to ensure that it maintains the very highest standards.
EcoWater was also one of the first manufacturers in the water treatment industry to become ISO certified. The International Organization for Standardization is based in Geneva, Switzerland and is the most widely accepted standard of quality in the world.
EcoWater has a detailed program for quality assurance. This program includes a supplier quality certification, final assembly testing, finished goods audits, and statistical process control as well as corrective and preventative action systems. This comprehensive program means that EcoWater can be completely confident that their dealer channel equipment meets the highest standard of quality possible.
Exclusive Products only available through the Dealer Channel
The EcoWater product line, specifically the ECR 3500, ERR 3500 and ERO 375 is designed to be exclusive to the EcoWater dealer channel. This exclusivity means that you cannot just walk into any store and buy it. Since EcoWater is the original manufacturer, you can also be assured that your dealer will have replacement parts and peripherals available long after your unit has been redesigned or replaced. Additionally, as EcoWater controls the manufacture of the product, you can expect better warranties compared to many other water conditioner companies that contract out the production of their components to others.
Choosing a new water treatment solution can be a daunting. Fortunately, experienced water treatment specialists are available to assist you in the process. With a variety of different systems to choose from and the importance of selecting the right size system being KEY, it is vital that you choose a tailored unit to suit your particular requirements. Expert guidance will ensure that your new unit can correct any water issues affecting your home, allowing you and your family to enjoy great quality water.
