  • GWT provides us with reliable & dependable monthly service. After choosing Global a year ago, our HW/CW chemical readings have been the most consistent out of the last 3 water treaters. GWT is in my budget and are very nice people to work with.

  • I have been a Global customer for many years. When the warranty period expired on our new office building I sought out water treatment companies to service the equipment. Global’s pricing, products, and service have kept me a customer since. As for performance, our cooling towers and chillers’ tubes look like new and have had no corrosion or scale issues.
