Product and Application Training

Training

The success of your job depends not only on the quality of the materials you use but also on your knowledge of those products and how to prepare and install them properly in the field. 

At LB Water, we don’t just sell waterworks products. We’re experts in their applications. We offer our customers value-added services that include helping you choose the right materials for your job and training you and your team in what you need to know to ensure your solutions perform the way you expect them to.

Customer Training

We have learned that only 1% of what at first may appear to be a product failure is actually the result of a problem with a product.

  • In 95% of these cases, an individual chose the wrong product for the application
  • In 4% of these cases, a contractor didn’t install the materials properly

A Proactive Approach to Preventing Problems 

At LB Water, we take a proactive approach to help prevent issues for our customers. First, an LB Water product specialist will help you prepare your order. Then, we’ll provide product and application training. We also offer training to introduce new products to our customers.
