Aqua Ace: happily afloat nearly 20 years into an unexpected business

After the summer business is starting to pick back for Aqua Ace, the family owned and operated water service and treatment company located half way between the City of Wetaskiwin and the Town of Millet.

Aqua Ace is owned by Brad Hamilton and his wife Shelley.

The couple has owned the business for almost 20 years, and the home-based business actually started out in the Town of Millet before it was moved into the county. “It’s probably the best move we ever did we move out into the county,” said Hamilton.

Hamilton says his biggest goal on each job is, “Pretty much making bad water good.”

“We either treat the water right at home or put in the equipment needed to treat it,” he added.

Whether it is an iron issue, hard water, or even water that smells bad, Hamilton loves being able to travel and rectify the situations for those in need.

“We really cater to concern,” said Hamilton. “You go into a place and within a couple of days you make everybody happy.”

“It’s a company, we really believe in it,” he added.

Hamilton moved to Millet in 1987 and is originally a baker by trade. Shelley has lived in the community all her life.

Before opening the business Shelley worked for a different water treatment company and Brad says she is the one who got him into the business, an industry Hamilton never imagined he himself would work in. “I’d had never, ever thought of it.”

“Once I started it I realized just how enjoyable it is,” said Hamilton, who says he likes the hands-on aspect of the work, as well as socializing and serving his clients face-to-face.

“I get to meet an awful lot of people. I get to drive all over the place. It’s a beautiful country,” said Hamilton.
