Chandler Systems History

  • Water Soft Inc. was founded by brothers Jim and Bill Chandler of Ashland, Ohio.
  • On February 29, 1980, Water Soft purchased the entire water treatment division of the F.E. Myers Pump Company.
  • Included in the purchase was a license for Water Soft to use the "Myers" name for a period of three years. If ever you see a product or literature in the field with both names present, it was manufactured prior to 1983.
  • Jim & Bill reinvested a large portion of the company's income to research and development. The result was the creation of several patented/proprietary products including the WATER SPRITE Water Filter and the PROVECTR Water Treatment System. These are all innovative in that they solve tough water problems without the use of costly chemicals. Another special product was the SOFT'N FILTER system that combines the filtration and softening process into one complete unit.
  • 1988
  • On March 2, 1988, Water Soft was purchased by Amtrol Inc. Over 30 years prior to the purchase of Water Soft, Amtrol introduced the first pre-pressurized diaphragm expansion tank to the water systems industry. At that time Amtrol was the leading manufacturer of water systems tanks in the world and was looking to enter into water treatment.
  • Eventually both Jim and Bill Chandler moved on to pursue other opportunities and Amtrol moved Water Soft out of the Ashland facility.
  • 1993
  • In 1993 Bill Chandler founded Chandler Systems Inc., a new venture focusing on the manufacture of electrical control systems for the water & wastewater markets.
  • 1995
  • On September 1, 1995, Bill Chandler formally began CSI Water Treatment Systems, a division of Chandler Systems Inc. As one of the co-founders of Water Soft Inc., Bill brought his experience and innovation to CSI that built one of the most successful water treatment companies in the industry.
  • Bill was able to acquire the talents of two water treatment professionals that had helped build Water Soft Inc. into the successful company it once was. Duane Baney and Russ Norris, with a combined experience of 30+ years in water treatment manufacturing, joined CSI Water Treatment in September of 1995.
  • Soon thereafter, CSI introduced an assortment of new products including: REACTR, OXYCLEAN, HYDROXR, and the Signature Series control valve.
  • The Clearion division was developed to meet the needs of the professional dealer portion of the market not currently covered by CSI's distribution.
  • 2008
  • In January of 2008 Bill sold the controls division of Chandler Systems Inc. to SJE Rhombus, a leader in the wastewater controls industry.
  • Almost 20 years later, in June of 2008, Bill Chandler acquired the Water Soft division back from Amtrol and moved production back to Ashland.
  • Chandler Systems is dedicated to the improvement of water quality through innovative development of water treatment products, design engineering services and educational programs to provide the utmost in quality and support to their valued customers.
