Family Owned – Mike Salmon and Bob Samlon

Central Washington Water began back in 1957 when Bob Salmon began selling and servicing Lindsay (Ecowater®) water softeners and iron filters.

In the 1970’s Bob’s son, Mike Salmon, joined the business and together they added the water-related products you see in the store today. Swimming pool chemicals and equipment came next, and in the late 1970’s they joined the “hot tub phenomenon” and became a dealer for Hot Spring Spas®. Since then the company has added patio furniture and our own line of pool and spa chemicals.

In 2019, Mike sold the company to Lee & Sharon Simms.

Lee has been an employee at Central Washington Water for 18 years and has worked all aspects of the business, and shares the same passion for our industry as well as the commitment to our customers as Mike and Bob have over the years.

The vision for the future of the company is to continue to be a support system for our customers, to continue to sell and service quality products, to give customers a high level of service and to always make the customer feel valued and welcomed, as they should be.
