OUR COMPANY HERITAGE

Quality Water Services started during a time when the world was experiencing the end of WWII and the surrender of Japan. Entrepreneurship was alive and well in those seeking the American dream. Jack Johnson being an entrepreneur himself started the business in December of 1945 with an idea that a small investment today will save you more tomorrow. Jack was devoted to helping businesses and homeowners alike with a service that at the time most had never even heard of.

The service of water treatment would provide enhanced use of soap products in the home, cleaner laundry and protect the home from hard water scale. That was the start of the business. Jack’s son, Downing Johnson, after graduating from Oklahoma Military Academy, provided Jack the sales effort needed to grow the business and eventually bought the business after it was incorporated in 1958. Downing began working with the area home builders association and served as the president. His vision was to have all homes pre-plumbed to accept the installation of water treatment which he did accomplish. This accomplishment was a huge turning point for the company in getting the product into the market which currently serves Ponca City, Stillwater, and Arkansas City, Kansas.

In 1998 the business was sold to Kelly Johnson, Downing’s son. Quality Water Services has broadened their reach in providing services to customers. We provides water softening, filtration, reverse osmosis, de-ionized water, and bottled water and delivery services. We also service residential, commercial and industrial water treatment needs and with our broad pool and spa division we provide services for residential pools, spas and backyard grill masters!
