Meet the Team
Advanced Water Solutions is locally owned and operated by Jay Hellenbrand, CWS-V, CI with over 20 years in the water treatment industry. Jay’s experience comes from manufacturing, wholesale distribution, field service, and retail sales. Advanced Water Solutions has been serving the central coast since 1997. Our continued growth and expansion is due to our commitment to delivering the highest quality products backed with the best customer service.
We have a team of highly qualified installers and service technicians. We service and maintain all brands and models of water treatment equipment.
Serving both residential and commercial markets in Ventura, Santa Barbara and Los Angeles counties, AWS carries a full line of whole-house filters, water softeners, drinking water systems, water coolers, insta-hot water makers, inline water chillers, filters and more.
Providing high efficiency water softeners with chlorine reduction and reverse osmosis systems is a priority for Advanced Water Solutions. Many older softeners are inefficient and use enormous amounts of salt and water no longer meeting California Efficiency Standards. Our systems far exceed the new efficiency standards using less salt or potassium and water. The standard reverse osmosis system uses as much as 80% more water than the new Advanced Reserve Osmosis System.
Advanced Water Solutions is a member of the Santa Barbara and Ventura Better Business Bureau (BBB) and the Water Quality Association (WQA). In March of 2011 AWS was recognized as a Hall of Fame Member with the BBB for a record of no outstanding complaints. Jay Hellenbrand is a certified Water Specialist, Certified Installer, and has specialty certifications in Reverse Osmosis, Deionization, Filtration, and Ultra filtration. Jay also carries a California State Contractors License.
