About Wandels' WaterCare

Water has been in the family for over 40 years. Veteran of the business Richard Kaat owned and operated a water conditioning dealership in Wisconsin for many years before moving to Michigan's Upper Peninsula where he opened doors again in 2001, providing much needed solutions for the problem water in the area. The business grew through the years to cover a seven county area including Gogebic, Ontonagon, Baraga, Houghton, Keweenaw, Marquette, and Iron counties.

In November of 2012, the business transitioned to Wandels' WaterCare and is now run by son-in-law Dan Wandel and his wife Sarah (Kaat) Wandel.
