About Waters Hardware

Waters Hardware is a family-owned, Kansas-based company with more than 125 years of serving our communities. From a small general store in Manchester, Kansas in 1894, we grew to 7 store locations across the state. In 2019, Waters, Inc. was purchased by Gerken Rent-All, which is owned and operated by the Gerken family since 2002. We now have 9 hardware stores with rental (2 with lumberyards also), and 13 stand-alone rental locations.  


Whether DIY or contractor, our trusted and knowledgeable team members are committed to providing a full complement of quality products and services to you to make certain that your projects are successful.
