Our Approach

Unlike our competitors, AquaDiversities provides a design, a product and ongoing operational support that ensures regulatory conformance.

Our Aqua™ modular water treatment plants are economical for small communities or camps requiring treated drinking water. The simple design is the size of a 20 foot shipping container and can be shipped anywhere lowering installation complexity.

Our municipal systems are less complex than others and are also designed with simple long term operation in mind. We work with local government and utilities to ensure they are getting the best solution for their constituents.

We stand behind our products and offer operation and maintenance services as well as operator training.

As a major distributors and representatives for all major water and wastewater equipment and supplies, we pass on competitive pricing to our customers.

Our systems are designed with economy and ease of operations in mind and we focus on simplicity through design.

We care about our products and our customers. Transparency, integrity and professionalism are our core standards.

Our mandate is to improve and preserve  water quality for existing as well as future generations.

Our office has a boardroom for efficient meetings and project planning.
