In 1987, Austinites Leonard and Dottie Strickler had the American dream of starting a business here in Central Texas that would allow them to support their family and the community they grew up in.
Leonard’s experience in water filtration sales and seeing the positive difference water quality made for his clients became a passion — which made starting American Water in 1987 the perfect fit. Since then, American Water has been supplying Austin / Central Texas area home and business owners with quality water solutions for well and city water.
In 1997, American Water decided that in order to provide the best solutions, we had to expand our product line. We didn’t have to look far, right here in the USA was Kinetico Water Systems founded in Newberry, OH in 1970 where our products are still made and manufactured today.
Here at American Water, we’re in this business to help people. When you have Better Water, you have a Better Life. We can no longer take our water quality for granted. Water softening and filtration were once considered luxury items that have now become necessities.
Kinetico water filtration systems are specifically engineered to remove any impurities from your water so it will be just that: water. The Kinetico products we offer utilize state-of-the-art technologies to provide home and business owners with a clean, safe water filtration system that is both environmentally conscious and cost-effective.
