Do you want to know what is in your water? Let Culligan help with that!

The design and maintenance of a proper water treatment system, from basic filtration to advanced chemical treatments, depends heavily upon identifying if and which contaminants may be present in your water and the concentration of that contaminant.

Several common water contaminants leave obvious signs of their presence, like rust stains from iron, or a rotten egg odor from hydrogen sulfide. Other water contaminants you cannot see, smell or taste. In order to properly treat problem water and maintain the water treatment system, you must understand what contaminants exist in your water source. And the only way to completely understand what contaminants are in your water is to perform a water test.

This video from Culligan illustrates how easy it is to get your water tested. Your Culligan Man can provide basic water testing in your home or you can receive advanced water testing with a mail-in water test from Culligan’s certified water analysis laboratory. Watch the video to learn more about Culligan water testing, and go make an appointment for your water test today!

Hi, thanks for this very informative post. I'm guessing the water testing you offer is much more concise than what's being detected by an off the shelf product like that of ZeroWater's TDS meter. Or are there really any major differences between the two?
