Key Information Unlocks Business Barriers

All right, so the “key” to this year’s Buyer’s Guide theme seems to be little more than a corny cliche. That being said, it also was the best way to get our point across to our readers.


All right, so the “key” to this year’s Buyer’s Guide theme seems to be little more than a corny cliche. That being said, it also was the best way to get our point across to our readers.

During the next year, we all will face challenges both big and small that test our endurance and abilities. The water treatment company that can offer the most cost-efficient products, undeniably the best services and the fastest responses will reign far superior to its competitors. Keeping on top of changes surely is the best way to unlocking the secrets to a successful business. Changes such as acquisitions and regulations continue to be trying obstacles. Our guide remains a constant quality source for your business needs.

The Water Quality Products Annual Buyer’s Guide definitely is a key to many of my successes throughout the year as I am sure it is for you as well. I refer to it often for regulation information, association contacts and, of course, product and service suppliers. For those who are first-time readers, here’s what we offer.

                Regulations Reviews—Current information on regulations in the point-of-use/point-of-entry and bottled water industries. Water treatment professionals review what has happened on the governmental front regarding standards and regulations affecting these industries. In addition, a peek forward also informs you of what to prepare for in the upcoming years. This year, we have Carlyn Meyer, director of public affairs for the WQA, and Joseph Doss, president of IBWA, lending their expertise in these areas, making it a must-read section.

                Product Service Listings—A listing of specific products and services offered from the suppliers listed in our publication.

                Product/Service Directory—This year we have taken extra measures in preparing this guide for our readers. As you will find, we carefully have reviewed each listing to ensure that the suppliers are in fact involved in the sector of the business for which they are listed. This high-quality care was imperative for us as we know it is paramount for readers to get the most data as quickly as possible with the value they deserve.

                Supplier Directory—An alphabetical listing of company’s addresses, websites, phone numbers, etc. We do our best to make sure everyone is included. If you do not see your company and would like to participate in next year’s Buyer’s Guide, visit to add/update your listing.

Whether you are hunting for conference contact names, where to purchase reverse osmosis supplies or what the recent change to the brine discharge regulations are, you can take this key, open the information door and get your business going in the right direction.
