- The company leaves a sample bottle and flyer on or inside the mailbox requesting that a water sample be collected for a free analysis in 24 hours. The flyer does not appear to have any company name on it or any way the company can be contacted directly.
- The representative returns in 24 hours to get the water sample the customer has collected.
- He/she then administers a chemical in the sample making it appear contaminated.
- He/she will try to persuade the customer that they need a water filtration unit to protect them from contaminated water.
- Do not participate unless you are planning to purchase a water filtration unit. RWR drinking water exceeds all local, state and federal guidelines.
- Do not sign any paperwork or documents. These filtration units are very expensive and the contracts are binding, even if you change your mind after you sign it.
- If you are elderly, please be extra vigilant.
