Arsenic. Iron. Sulfur. Three things you don’t want in your water. Depending on where you live, and where your water comes from, the presence of these chemicals can be common and lead to problems like stains, odor, poor taste – or worse. But that’s where we come in. Culligan has state-of-the-art water treatment solutions that are made to target and eliminate specific types of water contaminants.
Arsenic in Water
Groundwater sources, like wells, are more prone to arsenic contamination than surface water sources, like lakes and rivers. Although arsenic is a naturally occurring element found in rocks, soil, water, plants, and animals, high traces of arsenic in your drinking water can cause adverse health effects.
You can’t smell or taste arsenic in your water, which is why it’s important for private well owners to regularly test for the element. If arsenic is a problem with your water, Culligan’s Arsenic Reduction Water Filter, with high-absorption arsenic reduction, will ensure maximum protection from contaminated water.
Iron in Water
Iron is one of the most common water contaminants, typically entering the water supply by way of groundwater seepage or pipe corrosion. Telltale signs of the presence of iron in your home’s water include:
Culligan’s High Efficiency Iron-Cleer® Water Filter uses an advanced oxidation process that neutralizes dissolved iron in your water, so your water will taste better and leave sinks, tubs, and appliances rust-free.
Sulfur in Water
Sulfur is responsible for one of the most unpleasant symptoms of problem water – the smell of rotten eggs. While not harmful to your health, this unmistakable smell is just plain gross. Fortunately, Culligan’s High Efficiency Sulfur-Cleer® Whole House Filter can reduce the sulfur odor by ridding your water of hydrogen sulfide – so whether it’s coming from your faucet or your showerhead, you’ll have clean, odorless water throughout your entire home.
Certain water contaminants may seem easy to diagnose by sight or smell, but your best option is to leave it to the experts. Contact your local Culligan Expert to find out what might be lurking in your water, and find the best solution to target and treat the problem.
