Our History

In 1966 Ivan and Velma Cunning, along with their ten children started the Water Doctor from the basement of their home and used the family car as the sales vehicle. Three generations later, their son Larry Cunning is now the owner and manager of the family business. After the passing of his parents, Larry wanted to carry on the business with the same principles and values of which his parents started the business some many years ago. It is very important to Larry to continue the business his father started and worked so hard to build to what it is today.

Now along with his wife; Peggy, sons; Larry and Michael, step-son; Joey, daughters-in-law; Becky, and Karrie, Larry continues to provide the most durable and sophisticated service equipment in the soft water, filtration and reverse osmosis systems. As the industry grows, we have had to add to our fleet of trucks and trained personnel. We are independent suppliers of equipment and are able to match the best equipment to the water problems and are able to service most brands that are out there. Larry is a Master Water Specialist, the highest ranking by the Water Quality Association. Larry brings the educational side of water treatment to the company. Being raised in the inner circle of the water treatment industry he knows the very people that started most of the developments in the field of water treatment and development.

Customer service is a high priority to our business. We would not be where we are today without the continued support of our customers. We are now seeing fourth and fifth generations of customers because of our belief that satisfied customers will bring you new customers. Every customer is just as important as the next, whether we are servicing an old farm house in Northwest Missouri, a rental unit in town, or a major restaurant in Kansas City – everyone is treated as the most important.
If you find a need or desire for filtered water for your home, business, commercial, or industrial site; we sell and lease all of our equipment. Give us a call so that we can give you the adequate information for your situation, we will be happy to answer your questions.
