Protecting The Public Health
By Kelly Faloon

How one plumber meshed water treatment services into his vision of the plumbing profession.
When Richard Berner attended his first Water Quality Association meeting in 2003, his intent was to learn more about water quality issues and products. What he gained from the seminars and roundtable discussions was so much more.

“I knew this was the answer to servicing customers’ needs on a much broader scale and even went to the heart of the plumbing code — the plumber is licensed to help protect the public health and safety of the water supply,” he says. “Water treatment and purification fit that bill.”

Berner’s company, Wheaton, Ill.-based Water Wërks, is a plumbing service and repair company that also provides water treatment services and equipment. A third-generation plumber, he worked in his father’s contracting business (Berner Plumbing, Heating & Electrical) in high school as well as college, where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in industrial management. He worked as a production supervisor, environmental sales representative and independent consultant before receiving his journeyman’s plumbing license in 1998.

Solutions to H2O Problems

Water  Wërks,  a  fully  licensed,bonded and insured plumbing service  business and  water dealer  based  in  Wheaton,  Ill.,  is  paving the way as the next innovation in multi-service  companies.  By  providing  products  and  services  related  to  plumbing, water  softening,  drinking water  purification  and  a  “branded”  bottled  water, Water  Wërks’owner Richard  Berner  is creating the new standard for plumbers and water dealers alike. “Plumbing service  businesses,  water  softening/purification  companies  and  bottled  water dealers have mostly split into separate and  distinct  groups,  forcing  their  customers to make business alliances with sometimes  inconsistent  and  questionable trade practices or service rates/fees, appurtenance  health  hazards and/or blatant  plumbing  code  violations,” Berner writes on his company website,  “That split is costing all of them customers and in turn, costing  them  revenues  day  in and day out. ”
