Press Releases

Berner Plumbing & H20 Inc., formerly Water Werks, made a name change back in late 2005. To facilitate its growing customer base in service plumbing and create a better awareness of our water purification/treatment capabilities, Berner Plumbing & H20 Inc. has positioned itself to respond to the challenges ahead.

95 years and still going strong! Grandfather, Louis Berner Sr. started Berner & Conroy in 1924. (Dad, Louis Berner Jr. was only 2 years old at the time!) This was one of the first plumbing ads ran in the local Pantagraph paper in Bloomington, Il.

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.
