Count on Halco to provide you with safe, clean water

The earth is comprised of ⅔ water, making it one of the most plentiful and most important materials available. As water falls to the earth in the form of rain, snow, etc., it begins to pick up impurities (dust, micro-organisms, gases, etc.). For this reason, water treatment is one of the most important industries in the modern day world.

At Halco, we provide the most innovative, high quality and affordable water conditioning products to our customers. The Hydrotech products we use meet and exceed industry performance and reliability standards, and are designed to improve performance and product life. Let our water conditioning experts ensure your water is safe, clean, and clear with no unpleasant tastes or odors!

If you have any issues with your water quality, call us today to get a free estimate on our water conditioning services in Ithaca, Rochester, Syracuse and nearby areas in New York.
