You don't want to discover DEET, nicotine and pharmaceuticals in your drinking water. But after a year-long study by the health department in Granger, Ind., that's exactly what's been found. It's certainly caused concern in the town of just more than 30,000 people, and for good reason.

According to a news story out of South Bend, scientists found traces of Bactrim - an antibiotic used to treat bladder and ear infections and Primidone - medication used to control seizures and depression in the community's water, not to mention high nitrate levels.

If you're a resident of Granger, or concerned about the water in your area, contacting your local Culligan Man is key in finding a customized solution to your water troubles.

Culligan of South Bend is at the ready for the residents of Granger, able to provide free in-home water tests and recommend the best solution based on its findings. The test is a complete analysis of your water, fixtures, plumbing and water-using appliances. Your Culligan Man will answer your questions and provide a detailed report and equipment estimate in about 30 minutes, scheduled at a time that's convenient for you. Reverse Osmosis Water Systems, which can be instrumental in filtering impurities from drinking water in the whole home, are available for purchase and rent.

For your more immediate drinking water needs, ask your Culligan Man about bottled water delivery service, a convenient and money-saving alternative to single-serve water bottles that brings clean water directly to your home.

If you want a solution to your water problems, contact your local Culligan Man.

culligan cares thumbConvoy of Hope is an organization we at Culligan International hold near and dear to our hearts. With the recent devastation in the Philippines from Typhoon Haiyan, we continue to stand by its side, providing bottled water to help with relief efforts.

Relief efforts in the Philippines have been underway since the typhoon struck earlier this month. Convoy of Hope, which was founded in 1994, has a long history as a first responder in times of natural disasters and has been a Four Star Charity as recognized by Charity Navigator for nine consecutive years.

According to Convoy of Hope, Super Typhoon Haiyan is billed as one of the most powerful storms to ever make landfall in recorded history, being compared to a strong Category 5 hurricane. Seven million people have been directly affected.

At Culligan, we support the good work done by Convoy of Hope to help ensure people have access to drinking water in the event of a disaster and year round. The water benefits not only those displaced by the storm, but also first responders and volunteers.

But it's not just water Convoy of Hope provides in a time of need. They deliver food, medical supplies, and relief supplies daily. That's where you come in.
