What is TWQA all about?
TWQA is an established association serving Texas water treatment professionals.
The Texas Water Quality Association is the trade association representing the household, commercial, and industrial water quality improvement industry in Texas. Its member companies manufacture and sell point-of-use / point-of-entry (POU / POE) equipment, package water treatment plants, and customized water treatment systems.
TWQA sees its role as a catalyst to constantly upgrade the standards of the industry and the qualifications of its members. It does this primarily through its education, certification and ethics programs. TWQA members pledge to abide by the association’s strict industry Code of Ethics.
TWQA strongly believes in the value of education in the water conditioning and purification field to prepare the water treatment specialist to effectively help the consumer choose the best solution for their particular water problem, maintain it over time so that it performs as specified, and assure that companies and their employees achieve the highest level of professionalism in this increasingly demanding field.
We help develop and sponsor training around the state, and facilitate the testing and licensing program administered under the auspices of the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ). Certification under the Water Treatment Specialist (WTS) program assures that individuals are well trained in water treatment application, installation, service and ongoing maintenance practices, and that their work will help to protect public health.
TWQA provides a networking forum for members, suppliers, governmental entities and the public to collectively advance the state of water conditioning in Texas, as well as neighboring states.
