The president and owner, the glue to the company, the funny man in the corner office, Bob Hoey!

Bob has been in the water treatment industry for over 35 years. He and his wife Laurie (who you will meet later) started Water Doctors Water Treatment Company out of passion and drive to deliver the best water treatment options to the Twin Cities and Western Wisconsin areas.

He takes great pride in the work Water Doctors does and the employees at the company. He takes the time to get to know each employee, check in with them to ensure their satisfaction for work at the company.

Bob started his career in broadcasting, but with his ability to communicate, his drive to provide for his young family he craved more. He recognized his passion for the water treatment industry and the need for high quality products that were tailored to each specific home and client’s desires.

He started Water Doctors in the basement of his home in Golden Valley and has grown it to where it is today. Water Doctors has 30 full and part time employees including 10 field technicians.
