Kotz Heating, Cooling & Plumbing knows many of our clients have been shaken to the core by the lead contamination in Flint’s drinking water. Many of them know someone, or maybe even have family members, who have been affected. We know water quality is on everyone’s mind as this crisis continues play out. Residents want to know if they need a water filtration system to be sure their families are safe. They can start by providing a water sample to us, and we will test it at no charge. You can bring the sample in person to the Kotz Plumbing showroom at 5806 Dixie Highway in Waterford. If it’s more convenient, just give the water sample to our technician during the next service call.
Once the test results are in, we will pass the findings on to you. If there’s even a hint of a problem we will talk to you about the next step. Many are recommending water conditioning and treatment in all of the Detroit metropolitan area. Kotz features water filtering systems by Sterling. It’s also a good time to consider adding a water softener. It does not improve the purity of your water, but does promote healthy skin and hair. When you bring your water sample into the Kotz showroom throughout August, you can register to win free water softener salt for a month.
Politics and finger-pointing aside, the biggest fallout from the Flint water crisis may be the loss of confidence in our public water supplies. It reminded us, in a very clear and disturbing way, how important clean and healthy water is to each and every one of us, and the key role water conditioning can play in the process.

No one can change what happened to the good people of Flint. All we can do is learn from it and be vigilant about what’s going on in our own homes and cities. If we all, residents and government leaders, learn from what went wrong, we can prevent it from happening again.
We know having the cleanest water possible is necessary to stay healthy. Kotz has the expertise gained from serving plumbing, heating, and cooling needs in Clarkston, Waterford, and all of Oakland County, MI since 1929. This knowledge is what we use to help you make the right decisions about what’s best for you and your family members.
