  1. Terry J.

    I learned more in twenty minutes of talking with the Bugman than in my twenty years of running this wastewater plant. You are of great service.

  2. Steve

    I run wastewater operations in a cheese plant and occasionally we get biological mysteries that go above and beyond our capability. We’ve learned a tremendous amount working with Aquafix.
