Client Testimonials

"American Water Chemicals has provided a quality product at a great price. In addition, they have provided excellent service and have always delivered the product as promised on time."

Andy Fenske, Chief Water Plant Manager, City of Cape Coral

"AWC's cleaning chemicals have performed outstandingly in cleaning our ceramic microfilters and RO membranes at various industrial wastewater recycling facilities throughout the US and around the world. Although we have tested numerous other chemicals under many different conditions, we have not found any products that perform as effectively as AWC's cleaners."

GVG, OEM for Industrial Wastewater Recycling Systems

"Since the start-up of this plant in 2003, we have experienced biofouling issues that required us to clean every 28 days. However, since we started using the AWC A-102 Plus, we have been able to extend the frequency between the cleaning of membranes from 28 days to 20 weeks."

Greg Turman, City of Clearwater Production Coordinator

"The use of sulfuric acid is eliminated, resulting in a great increase in plant safety. Our cleaning interval has gone from 6 months to over a year. We had much more fouling on acid."

L.T. Moore, Operator IV, Lead, Village of Royal Palm
