Calls from an out-of-area water service company are causing headaches for property owners in Door and Kewaunee Counties. Recently, some Sturgeon Bay homeowners received flyers and postcards to get a free water test. In exchange for some freebies and a potentially big pay day, they were given a high-pressure sales pitch for overpriced water softeners and drinking systems. The scam has even made its way into the Fox Cities. Culligan of Sturgeon Bay owner Jeff Tebon says people should only deal with licensed plumbers and water professionals they can trust.
Tebon encourages residents to bring a water sample to his Sturgeon Bay shop to have it tested if they believe they are being lied to and being pressured into new equipment.
