Why Sell Only Aquathin Water Purification Systems?

At least once a month someone asks me, “Why do you only sell Aquathin water purification systems?” What they are really asking is “What makes Aquathin special?”.

Quality Lasts

The people that know me well know I appreciate quality. I use things until they literally fall apart. Then I fix them before I replace them. I’ve got a pair of Johnson & Murphy dress shoes that have served me for 32 years. I drive a 2002 Jeep Wrangler with 264,920 miles under the hood. My Jeep replaced my 1994 Chevy S10 that carried me faithfully 317,000 miles. I still listen to vinyl on a Fischer stereo system that is 37 years old. When I build furniture, I use only real wood. In a disposable culture, I’m a throwback. I believe in buying things that last. And quality lasts. Aquathin water purification systems are quality systems.

Passion for Purity and Excellence

I met Alfie Lipshultz, President and CEO of Aquathin, in 1998. When you hear Alfie talk, you don’t just hear the passion in his voice about pure water, you feel it. Some people spend their life looking for their passion. Not Alfie. His passion is developing and building the best water purification systems in the world so people can drink the purest water possible.

At the time we met, Alfie and the Lipshultz family had been designing, patenting, manufacturing and selling water systems around the world for 22 years. Today they manufacture over 70 systems.  And from the simplest carbon icemaker filter to the most complex laboratory or hospital systems, quality and effectiveness are not only a priority, they are the priority.

Aquathin uses high standards to manufacture their systems and they are just as particular when it comes to approving dealerships. Even today, you can’t find Aquathin systems in big box stores.

A Matter of Trust

Every day there is a new story with a water contamination connection. It may be a chemical spill or a busted pipe. Scary reports about lead, nitrates, sewage, or pharmaceuticals in the water we trust to be safe to drink. Except it’s not. That sacred trust has been broken. But Aquathin understands the importance of trust.  Alfie once told me “Our customers depend on us to provide them the safest and cleanest water possible.” It’s a tremendous responsibility to hold that trust, but that is exactly what Aquathin does.

Seeing is Believing

As an Aquathin dealer in South Florida, we serviced some of the original RO/DI systems that were sold direct in 1980. I first became a dealer in 1998. Those systems were already 18 years old!  10 years later many were still producing the same quality of pure water as they did the day they were first installed. I’ll never forget the service call in a home where the Aquathin system was 22 years old. The homeowner was grumbling about the cost to service the unit. I get it. I don’t like to spend money unless it is necessary. But I asked him what else he owned in the house that was 22 years old and still going strong. His wife looked at him with a smile and then told me “Only the Aquathin”. We serviced that system for another 3 years. And then they replaced it with a new one.

So why don’t we sell other brands? Why do we only sell Aquathin water purification systems?

The answer is simple. Aquathin systems work. They are dependable, and they are made to the highest quality standards. They are manufactured in the USA by a family that understands their reputation is on the line with every product that leaves the warehouse. I believe you deserve the purest water available. Aquathin agrees. No One Does It Better isn’t a tagline. It’s the truth.
