Water quality is the number one element in a healthy lifestyle, and Advanced Water Treatment Inc. wants you to be your healthiest self.
Focused on purifying water for homes and businesses in Southern West Virginia, the Hinton company Advanced Water Treatment Inc. has been operating since 1993.
Valerie Amsdill and her husband started the company, building it from the ground up. Since her husband passed away, Amsdill has been running Advanced Water Treatment as the sole proprietor.
“We are a dealership, not a franchise,” she says. “We are members of a Water Quality Association which holds an annual convention, and we shopped the represented companies and products there and chose the brand we felt was best for our area. The Eco Water brand has turned out to be an industry leader and a very solid company with top quality products.”
Advanced Water Treatment’s coverage area includes a dozen counties, which not only is a lot of territory for the service personnel to cover but also presents a wide range of water issues and problems for the company to handle, but Amsdill says her team has the scheduling down pat.
“We mix our daily routes so we can do installs, repairs and annual service calls in a particular section at the same time,” she says.
The annual inspection of their systems is scheduled to match the customer’s availability with the technicians’ calendar. That’s a big part of her job, she says, steering the trucks to the customers while she manages the home office.
“We are a little company with a big bang!” she says.
Full of good humor and humbled by years of being in a service business, Amsdill fully understands her customers’ needs and the daily grind the technicians experience.
Advanced Water Treatment’s system modifies the water coming out of your tap, water you use for cooking and drinking. There are under-the-sink and dedicated faucet systems, and there are whole house systems. Each client has individual needs and water quality problems.
“Damage to the plumbing and fixtures, increased electricity use by a sediment laden water heater, and irritation or illness caused to the person using the water are the targets of our treatment system. We do not over-treat and we do not over-charge. We only provide the specific technology for each customer’s needs,” says Amsdill.
Lime can deface your faucets, it can block the plumbing, and for people with eczema cause itching and dry skin issues. Rust can completely block the pipes in the house, it stains clothing and appliances. Both of these culprits can be filtered and even flushed over a few weeks’ time from the whole house plumbing.
Other chemicals like chlorine, and chloramines used by municipal water treatment plants, can be removed as well. They have killed all the bacteria by the time the water reaches your house, Amsdill says, so there really is no benefit to you consuming them afterward.
A popular bottled water now is alkaline water and, as you might guess, it is available in the under-sink reverse osmosis filtration system.
“An alkaline cartridge added to the system can raise the pH to a level of 8-10. Usually, people only want this at their drinking faucet, but we have installed full house versions as well,” says Amsdill.
Advanced Water Treatment Inc. can be reached in Hinton at 304-466-2000, but also be sure to check out their display at the State Fair of West Virginia to see the equipment display and get some information or schedule a water test visit.
