TWQA Adds Supplier Offerings to Website

TWQA is pleased to announce a new member benefit. Over the last weeks, TWQA staff have worked to implement a new feature on the TWQA website. Supplier members can now provide a short description of their primary offerings, making it much easier for dealers to find suppliers that can provide critical products and services.

TWQA added this feature in recognition of the important role our supplier members make to the Association and to the water quality industry. New dealers, using only a list of company names and contacts, often find it difficult to find suppliers that offer specific products and services. New suppliers find it difficult to differentiate their offerings.

Adding a short offering description solves both challenges. Supplier offerings appear in the Supplier Members list that can be accessed from the Hot Spots section of the TWQA home page. Offerings also appear in the 'Thank You' banners of the News and Events sections that appear on website.

The 'Primary Offering' field is now part of the supplier Company Profile (accessible from the 'My Company' button on the Member Tools page). Active members can either update their offerings themselves, or forward a short description to the TWQA offices.

If you have questions about this article, or would like to provide a short description of your primary offerings, please contact Daina Grace, TWQA Executive Director, by email or phone at 361.573-6707.

TWQA Calls Attention to Door-to-Door Scams

The Texas Water Quality Association (TWQA) is calling attention to individuals claiming to be employees of TWQA going door-to-door passing themselves off as water inspectors, offering to test homeowner’s drinking water, or using scare tactics to sell water treatment devices.

TWQA Executive Director Daina Grace stated that “the Texas Water Quality Association does not solicit door-to-door, period.  The Association represents the water quality industry and does not sell products or solicit to test water for the public.  TWQA has a strict code of ethics for companies that join the Association.  We do not condone misrepresentation as TWQA or the use of scare tactics to generate business.”

You can find water treatment professionals who have committed to abide by the TWQA Code of Ethics by going to www.twqa.org and click on Find a Dealer. 


Please feel free to contact the TWQA office at 361-573-6707 or by email at twqadirector@twqa.org if you have any questions or concerns.
