Craig Phillips started Quality Water Treatment in his hometown Sebastopol, CA in 1990. Sebastopol and surrounding Sonoma County Is a small, mostly rural country side area that specialized in Apple farming with a lot of private water wells. Craig started in the water treatment industry as a laborer for Rayne Water system in 1986, where he learned how to install and service water treatment equipment. Craig soon became sales manager and was quickly promoted to general manager at a new branch located in Redding, CA. So he packed up and moved his family about a four hour drive from his hometown.
In late 1989, the spotted owl in Northern California became an endangered species. As a result, almost all the lumber mills were closed down, which was the main source of employment in Redding and surrounding areas. Unfortunately, the new Rayne Water Systems office was closed due to the failing economy in the area. This left Craig without a job. He tried to work in the area, but he could not support his family. He even found himself surviving on fishing the local lakes and rivers for food to feed his family. So in 1990, Craig went back to his hometown and rented an old building from a friend’s parent and opened up Quality Water Treatment. With very little money, a lot of hard work and a willingness to succeed, Craig laid the foundation for what would be the largest online water treatment company today.
Craig started the internet part of Quality Water Treatment in 2001 and it is still a family owned and operated Company. Craig’s daughter Heather has been working for Quality Water Treatment since she graduated College in 2008.
