Where is West Bend water sourced from?
Thousands of years ago, 2 glaciers collided that formed the beautiful scenery of Washington County and the Kettle Moraine Area. Hills, lakes, flat farmlands, and swamps were formed. Deposits of sand, gravel, silt, and clay over ancient bedrock created various groundwater aquifers: sand and gravel, limestone, and sandstone, that now supply water to all of Washington County.

Craig came over and gave us a quote on both a water softner and RO system. He was right to the point, very friendly and a great person to chat with. He was very knowledgeable about the systems and how they work. Not only was Craig awesome but our installer Tony was equally as awesome and did a very professional install. After he was done he walked us through both systems and maintenance. Highly recommend this company over the “other” guys!
