What people are saying about Guthrie & Frey in Elm Grove

“They are very attentive and responsive. They describe things in a way my wife and I can understand. They have excellent payment options. I would highly recommend.”

David E.

“Many thanks to Guthrie and Frey for replacing our water system today. They removed a nearly 20 year old Culligan set of equipment and replaced it in 3 hours with a brand new Iron Curtain and a 40,000 grain softener, and both systems are state-of-the-art and Wisconsin-made. Light years better! Zero pressure to “make a sale” and nothing but professionals from the consultant to the installers. Can’t say enough how awesome it was working with them.”

Bill L.

Guthrie and Frey is my trusty “go to” for water quality. We’ve used them to install R.O. systems in both home and office, and trust them with our home softener and iron curtain systems. Most importantly, they’re honest and won’t try to sell you something you don’t need… I also recommend them to all of my clients in need of water quality solutions.
