Water (Inc.) is a specialist in the water filtration industry. When it was founded in 1978, interest in this industry was nearly nonexistent. Recent national polls suggest that approximately 85 percent of the population in the United States is concerned about the safety and quality of drinking water due to the presence of lead, asbestos, Cryptosporidium and other contaminants. The company s network of dealer drinking water specialists has grown to be one of the premier Western U.S. representatives of quality drinking water systems. Its products filter, heat, brew, chill, soften and dispense water, and its specialized programs include water testing, change outs, extended warranties and factory-trained installation in most major metropolitan area. The company maintains operations in Carson, Calif.
