    It’s a fundamental part of your health, and that of your home’s. Shouldn’t you know what’s in it?

    At Culligan, we think everyone should have an understanding of what’s in the water we use every day. Learn more about who should test water, and when, to keep everything running smoothly.

    Changes in Your Home: Moving, Remodeling & Major Appliances

    If you’ve recently moved, are conducting major changes on your home, had something change with your municipality, or you’ve experienced anything new or different about your water, it’s a good idea to have it checked. A water test can identify issues when relocating or renovating, and even help you get the most out of new appliances before you install them.

    If you live in, or are moving to, an area where geologic activity is conducted regularly, such as mining, hydraulic fracturing, or excavating, you should test your water regularly.

    Changes in Water Quality: Odors, Tastes & Stains

    Whenever you notice anything different about your water, whether it’s a new odor or a slightly different taste, it’s time to test your water. Watch for these changes in water quality and schedule a free test if you notice any of them:

    • Bitter or tart tastes
    • Unpleasant odors
    • Water spots or cloudiness on dishes and glassware
    • Scratchy, stiff laundry
    • Scale buildup on showers and sinks
    • Stains in showers, toilets, and sinks
    • Slower or softer water pressure

    Well Water

    Private well water is not evaluated by the EPA or the government for quality, so it’s especially important to test regularly. Culligan will identify these issues, and the frequency with which you should test well water:

    • Total coliform bacteria, nitrates, total dissolved solids, and pH levels – every year
    • Tannins, hardness, chloride, sulfate, alkalinity, iron, and copper – every two to three years

  • Culligan has been testing water and providing solutions for homes and businesses for over 75 years.
