Tyler Kaufmann - Owner
Craig Nokes - Service and Sales
Our parent company is EcoWater Systems in Woodbury, MN. It was founded in 1925 by Lynn Lindsay, who designed the first residential water softener.
EcoWater Systems holds more patents than all the competitive brands combined. It began as a research and development company, and has remained as such all of these 90 years.
We, EcoWater Systems of Quincy, are proud to be an exclusive dealer for them, for West Central Illinois and Northeast Missouri. We have been serving this area since 1972. Mr. Bob Kendall started our dealership in 1972, after scouting out the different manufacturers and selecting what was then known as Lindsay Water Conditioning; determining it to be the premier water conditioning company with the most advanced designs. In 1988, Mr. Kendall chose to retire and sold his dealership to Keith Kaufmann, who has owned it since. In 2002, a local competitor, Quincy Water Conditioning, was acquired from the Duesterhaus family. In 2004, the present location at 815 Maine Street was purchased to give us a new business home. Then in 2005, Tyler Kaufmann (Keith's son) joined the business, becoming co-owner with Keith.
Keith retired in 2018 and Tyler is now owner and operator. In 2019 the business moved to 1843 Broadway to expand and provide a convenient location to our current and future customers.
We are able to provide our customers with the choice between renting or owning their equipment, whichever suits them best. We are a full service dealership for residential and commercial sales and service. Our products range from water softeners to reverse osmosis purification to ultra-violet purification to filtration systems to de-ionization.
The majority of our new customers come to us by recommendation from an existing customer. We work extremely hard to protect those customer relationships. We set high standards on timeliness, polite treatment toward the customer, no-return-call repairs, and clean/quality installation and repair work.
If you are unfamiliar with us, we will gladly provide you with a reference that will likely include someone from your neighborhood or workplace.
