• Problem Water

    Why water goes wrong, and what to do about it.

    The journey your water makes from the water table to your tap is a long one that can have problematic twists and turns. Learn about common water issues, what causes them, and how your local Culligan Man can help you fix them.


    Hard Water


    Hard water can manifest in your home or business in a number of ways. Water that leaves skin feeling itchy, clothing scratchy, and dishes cloudy, or water that leaves residue behind on fixtures and plumbing in the form of soap scum and stains are all symptoms of hard water.


    Dissolved iron in water is a common cause behind many of these hard water problems, but whatever the culprit, Culligan has a variety of water softeners to choose from, as well as resources to help you learn more about hard water, and products and services that make conditioning your water simple and worry-free.


    Water Odors


    Another telltale sign of problem water can be odors. Whether it’s fishy or smells of chlorine, one thing you shouldn’t notice about water is its smell.


    Higher-than-normal sulfur content can cause water to smell fishy, while water that has been over treated can smell like chlorine. Learn more about what causes odors in water, and how your Culligan Man can help you determine the best water filtration system for a fresher-smelling result. 


    Tastes in Water


    It’s hard to describe the way water tastes. That’s the way it should be. If you taste anything besides clean, fresh nothing in your water, you may need to schedule a free water test from your Culligan Man. It may also be that tap water tastes just fine, but coffee or tea takes on a metallic aftertaste, which can be another sign it’s time for a home water test.


    Dissolved iron and iron bacteria are often causes for metallic-tasting water, and can often be solved with an iron-reduction filter. Learn more about iron in water, how it gets there, and what you can do about it.


    Problem Well Water


    Wells can be prone to water problems just like municipal water supplies. For all the causes of problem water from wells, whether it’s an odor, taste, or unpleasant stains, Culligan has efficient solutions that filter and soften water for a cleaner, better-tasting result.
