Protection Standards Help Build, Keep Public Confidence
OWQA members subscribe to a Code of Ethics concerned with business
practices that encourage consumer respect. As a result, our
water treatment industry has earned public confidence at a period
when many other businesses have lost it.
OWQA Code of Ethics
The members of this association pledge to uphold all principles
of fair, competitive selling. So that we may merit the esteem
of the customers in the communities we serve.
1. We offer honest, truthful, clear and completely described
values at all times in all circumstances.
2. We tell our customers all they wish to know and everything
they are entitled to know about our products and services so
that they may make informed decisions and enjoy maximum satisfaction.
3. We use and therefore stand behind only those guarantees and
warranties which are reasonable, specific and may dependably
4. We avoid the use of misleading devices or schemes which could
tend to promise capacity or performance beyond the limits recommended
by the manufacturers of our products and supplies.
5. We sell our products and services on their own merits, without
attempting to downgrade those of our competitors. For we all
belong to one industry and the public reputation of that industry
is dependent upon our individual integrity.
