WQA is a not-for-profit trade association representing the residential, commercial, and industrial water treatment industry. WQA also serves as an educator of water treatment professionals, a certifier of water treatment products, a public information resource and the voice of the water quality improvement industry.  More detailed information is available on our “About WQA” page.

Reporters on deadline: Please reach out to us with questions you may have about water quality issues or water treatment products. We will do our best to arrange interviews with WQA staff or members who can answer questions regarding point-of-use and point-of-entry technology and treatment options.
