About the MWQA


The Minnesota Water Quality Association is a statewide trade association representing the household, commercial, and industrial water quality improvement industry. Established in 1956, the MWQA represents companies that manufacture and/or sell point-of-use/point-of-entry (POU/POE) equipment such as water filters, customized water treatment systems (including softeners, reverse osmosis systems or iron removal systems), and related products such as water softener salt, softener resin and valves.

Looking for Options to Treat Your Water?

The MWQA assists consumers by providing information and answers about water treatment systems, both for residential or commercial applications. There are a variety of options available to treat your water at the tap or at the point of entry. Making a decision regarding what type of system you need, whether ro buy or rent a water treatment system, and understanding how different systems work can be difficult. A licensed MWQA member can help you understand how systems work and which system is best for your home or business.

What’s Wrong With Your Water?

Do you have hard water? Is your water cloudy and have an odor? Not sure where to start? Contact us and we will point you in the right direction! Although MWQA cannot endorse or recommend specific products, manufacturers or dealers, we can give you generalized information about what systems could work for you. We have brochures, books and online resources to help you make an informed decision. The National Water Quality Association has an informative publication, called “Water Treatment for Dummies,” that explains different types of treatment systems. Here’s a link to that publication. It’s free to download or browse.
