All About Water was started in Meridian, Idaho in February 2007 out of the need of a family to find an affordable, consistent source for clean, pure drinking water.
Once the family realized that most, if not all, the potable water (water suitable for human consumption) in the area came from ground water (wells and aquifers), both private and municipal, they started to have some concerns. The health department and media had warnings of contaminated water sources in different local areas.
What the family discovered was higher than desirable levels of Arsenic, Nitrate, Uranium, Iron and several organic and inorganic contaminants found in water sources. Local Water Departments are only responsible for the quality of the water that leaves their system and not responsible for the water we draw out of our taps at home and the work place.
The founder of All About Water came from 30+ years in the health care industry. In several cases during that time, he worked with water purification for dental surgery. Due to contaminants in city water, it was unable for dental procedures. Bio-film contamination in the small water lines of dental units was also an issue. The founder dedicated months of research and trials to come up with a reasonable solutions for these problems.
This background gave him a great appreciation for clean water and an understanding of filtration and purification methods.
In March 2021, All About Water was acquired by Mike and Mary Hyde. Mike is an industrial chemical testing provider who has a passion for bringing affordable, fresh, clean, and great-tasting water to the Treasure Valley, along with exceptional service. His wife, Mary, is a retired teacher. Mike’s extensive career in building industrial applications for the public sector, combined with his former work on a municipal water supply, make his expertise ideal for taking All About Water’s quality and service even further.
Even though there are Federal and Local water quality regulations, it is near impossible to have consistent quality tap water. The only sure way to have better control over the quality of water you and your family drink is to be an informed consumer on the true facts about your local water source.
