The History of Tri County Water

Tri County Water was founded by Darwin Watts in 1966 in Lesli, MI. Under the original name “Tri-County Water Conditioning”, the company served people primarily in Jackson, ingham, and Eaton counties. Then, in the early 1990’s, Darwin Watts decided to turn over the business to his son, Jeff.

Tri-County Water - Tri-County Water founder and Sons who currently run the family owned businessCurrently, brothers David and Daniel Watts own Tri County Water, both third-generation grandsons of the original founder, Darwin. Nowadays, the company covers over 20 counties in mid-Michigan, western Michigan, and northeast Indiana, most recently expanding to Bronson in 2013 and subsequently the greater Grand Rapids area in 2015.

Our service is what primarily separates us from our competitors, and our customers have continued to thank us for that over the decades of work we’ve been doing. You can go to any hardware store and buy new water treatment equipment, but getting someone to install it, maintain it, and, if needed, repair it can be extremely difficult. Prior to even purchasing your system, we will help you with a free in-person water analysis to make sure we identify your exact issue correctly and choose the product that will address it the best.

We have been helping people in Michigan get new water softeners, reverse osmosis systems, water filters, and more for many decades, all of which are American-made, and we’re looking forward to serving you too. On top of our standard installation, maintenance, and repair services, we can also help you change your filters and we can deliver bottled water and softener salt directly to your home or commercial location.
