Cooling TowerGeneral:
We provide, on-site water treatment consulting services, and industrial water treatment chemicals to our customers. Systems typically treated are boilers, cooling towers (and evaporative condensers), both hot and chilled closed loops, and wastewater treatment plants. We employ both liquid and solid products for the treatment of boiler water, cooling tower water and closed systems.

On-Site Water Treatment Services:
On request we will go to any facility within 150 miles of Bear, Delaware to review your facility for the potential to become one of our customers. There is no charge for the initial evaluation visit. Generally we prefer this to be a facility that has had problems with getting acceptable results from one of our competitors. We are highly experienced and qualified and will be visited by an Analytical Chemist with over 40 years in this industry.

Be aware that we do not do bids on our service. We are seeking a long term relationship with our customers based on reasonable prices and reliable high quality service. Our services are unique and customized to your needs. They are not commodities that can be interchanged with some other company’s services. We do have low overhead and are generally less expensive than our competition, but it is in the quality not the price that we have chosen to differentiate ourselves. We have made an effort to place the commodities on www.TheWaterTreatmentStore.com.

Consulting Services:
We provide Consulting Services to retail customers who are not buying water treatment products from us and to small water treatment companies who cannot afford to hire a full time technical director. These services are provided at the rate of $200.00 per hour plus expenses. Lower rates are negotiable based on long term contracts. This service is offered globally.

Expert Witness Services:
Should you become involved in litigation with a current or past water treatment company, we are willing to review your case for you at no charge to see if it has merit. If so we will consider representing you. We will not represent you against friends or companies for whom we have provided consulting services. If we decide to represent you, our fee is at the rate of $200.00 per hour plus expenses which is non-negotiable. This service is offered globally.
Legionella Testing Services:

We have for a long time provided Legionella Testing and more recently Legionella Test Kits that can yield results in as little as 25 minutes (in www.TheWaterTreatmentStore.com). More recently we have been asked if we could come in and do the sampling on-site as a turnkey service. We can do this for companies as long as they are in a 150 mile radius of Bear, Delaware. The types of testing products, the frequency of testing, and the price for this service are totally negotiable.
