About Puritan Springs

It's nice to meet you.

Beginning with the first bottle of water delivered in Lincoln, IL, on July 1, 1982, the addition of Metro St. Louis on May 1, 1990 and Merrillville, Indiana on June 1, 2021, Puritan Springs has strived to be a contributing member of the communities we serve.  Puritan Springs is proud to span the Midwest — from Northern Missouri to Northern Indiana — providing the purest, best-tasting drinking water and related products to your home or business with quick and convenient customer service.

Our History

Founded by Robert and Adele Waddell in 1972, Waddell, Inc. and its subsidiary, Puritan Springs Bottled Water, have provided the Midwest with water treatment solutions and high-quality, safe drinking water for more than 50 years. Since Robert’s discharge from the United States Marine Corps, the Waddells have stuck to their core values and remained a family-owned company. Providing excellent service to their customers has continued to be the golden rule.

With the addition of the Waddells’ two children, Cheryl and Rob, Puritan Springs will continue to have a strong, local presence with family values as the backbone to success. Over the years, the company has been a steady and productive employer. Our mission is to not only grow our business and offer more jobs, but also to continue our community presence and give back to the customers who make it all possible.
