Over the course of his 30 plus years in water treatment, Dale has worked with the largest leading companies in the United States, and many others of all sizes.

He helps his clients find their own best approach that fits their unique situation and needs. Dale loves helping others and combining his technical expertise to solve problems and teach others. He continues to do so today, primarily by focusing on teaching and coaching water treatment clients.
