We are a fully licensed, bonded and insured Arizona Contractor ( ROC # 227840 ) with a flawless record never having had even one complaint with either the Arizona Registrar of Contractors or the Better Business Bureau. We pride ourselves on having the best and fastest service available to our customers, at a reasonable price. Mountain Fresh Water Systems was started in September of 1979 by me, Glenn Buckman. Having grown up in Pennsylvania, I worked in my fathers' water treatment business doing sales, service and installation of various types of water treatment equipment dealing with difficult well water problems. My experience includes working with just about every brand of residential and light commercial water conditioning equipment in the industry. Mountain Fresh was in the top 10 award winning dealers nationwide with EcoWater Systems for over 12 years here in Phoenix, Arizona. After leaving EcoWater in 1992, because of progressively worsening quality and service issues, I came to realize that most water systems, brand name or otherwise, used many of the same components. Big brand names such as Culligan, Rayne, Hauge, Rainsoft, and Ionics all use Fleck control valves. The Technetic 1000, uses an Osmonics / Autotrol manufactured control. Watertec uses a Clack control. In fact, about 85% of all water softeners and conditioners use either a Clack, Fleck or Osmonics / Autotrol control valve, on top of either a Park International or Structural Fibers pressure vessel, filled with cation resin made by Dow Chemical, Sybron ( Ionac ), Diamond Shamrock, Rohm & Haus or Purolite. The same concept holds true for Reverse Osmosis Systems using Filmtec or Desal membranes, Amtrol accumulator tanks, Amteck filter housings and Omnipure or Cuno Filters. Now, this does not mean all water systems are all the same. Certainly, some companies use much better components than others and will cost more. Those products being made for the discount stores ( i.e. Lowes, Home Depot, Spencers, Ace Hardware, ect. ) will use much cheaper components than a real water dealer in order to keep their price down low. However, it is my experience that there are only 2 reasons why any water systems dealer would charge from $3, 500 up to as much as $5, 000'either sloppy, antiquated marketing practices or just plain greed. Our goal of Mountain Fresh Water Systems is to bring sensible pricing to the water treatment industry, without sacrificing quality or performance, while still maintaining the highest standards of excellence in service and installation.
