Made in China is Not How We Got Our Name
The Water Quality Association ("WQA") is seeking tariff exemptions for Chinese water treatment products that American Water Treatment Dealers are selling. I guess that is all well and good, but as the tariffs apply to US Water Systems, all I can tell you is that our name is US Water Systems, not China Water Systems,
and we have been phasing out Chinese products for years. So, while most other Water Dealers, Big Box Stores and Online Retailers are selling you filters and filter housings made in China and fighting for that right, US Water has been busy developing "industry leading" products that are Made in USA, not China.
What is amazing to us is that even in China, they prefer products made in the USA!
Think about that one for a moment...
To date, US Water Systems is now selling the following products online that are all Made in America:
- Pleated Sediment Filters
- Reverse Osmosis Membranes
- Gradient Density Depth Filters
- Carbon Block Filters
- Radial Flow Carbon Filters
- Reverse Osmosis Filter Packs
- Media Filters
- 4-1/2" x 10" and 4-1/2" x 20" Filter Housings
- Water Softener and Backwashing Filter Tanks
Our ultraviolet systems are made in Canada, not China and our carbon is from Sri Lanka (not China) because the World's Very Best coconut shell carbon is from that region. We are also in the process of rolling out water softener and water filter valves and electronics that are all Assembled in the USA. We are attempting to source as many products as possible from American Suppliers in factories we can easily visit and see the quality control.
Let the others sell you Chinese-Made Products, if that is what you want, but we will sell American-Made Products because, after-all, that is our name: US Water Systems!
Below is the top of our new 4.5" x 20" Housing - Made in the USA! Many people call these "Big Blue" filters, but ours are grey and black and made in America, while all Big Blues I know about are made overseas or in Mexico. Ours also have a Double O-Ring "Posi-Seal"
so that all the water goes through the filter - there is no bypass.
