Our Mission

WaterZen exists to improve your family's health by making information about the water you drink more accessible, straightforward, and easy-to-understand.

We do this by providing clear, simple water-quality information for your area based on data from your local water provider, unbiased comparisons, health standards, and expert opinions.

The way we see it, when you';re informed about the quality of your water and then empowered to protect your family (and your community), you've achieved “water zen.”

Our Team


Dave, Founder

Yes, it sounds like something out of a Grisham bestseller or an “outbreak” movie: in the area where my family and I used to live, an alarming number of our neighbors developed brain tumors and were diagnosed with brain cancer.

Because the rate was far higher than the national average, I became suspicious of our drinking water and started doing some research. Sure enough, I discovered that our water contained unsafe levels of contaminants, and I took steps to protect my family and inform our community.

Hi, my name is Dave. After this incident, I decided that this kind of information would be beneficial to people around the country. So, I started WaterZen.
