The Water Shop was established over 30 years ago by Vince Russell, one of the founding fathers of the health food industry in Australia. Vince received numerous awards for his innovations before the ‘Russell’s’ chain of 7 successful stores was later purchased by Blackmores Vitamins.
When the media started reporting on the contaminants and pollutants in our drinking water and with the addition of sodium fluoride, Vince became aware of the growing demand for water purification products. In response to this need he designed and commercialised Australia’s first home drinking water system in the 1970’s.
Recognising the emerging market and the need for high quality purification technologies The Water Shop was founded in the 1980’s and has evolved into one of Australia’s largest independent water filtration importer/exporter wholesaler and retailer.
We remain devoted to Mr Vincent Russell’s intention of providing products of unsurpassed quality to enhance the wellbeing and health of our customers.
Every year we attend at least two of the world’s largest water purifications trade fairs and conventions, keeping abreast of the latest filtration technologies and products available from around the world. We pride ourselves therefore in ensuring that you are receiving the best water filtration solution available at this time.
The Water Shop is also an ISO 9002 approved company and a member of the Water Quality Association. We provide certified and fully tested products that meet or surpass the AS/NZS/IS9002 and Australian Plumbing Standard MP52.
