    Why is water quality so important?

    Water is one of the most important components of our daily lives. Not only can it impact your health and wellbeing through the water you drink and cook with, but your water quality also can impact your home and appliances. At the same time, not all water quality issues can be seen, tasted or smelled - that’s why home water testing is so important, especially for homes with well water, for which water testing is recommended at least once a year.

    Common Household Water Problems

    Hard Water

    Hard water is caused by high levels of calcium and magnesium in water supplies. Have water spots on your freshly washed glasses or shower doors? Hard water is likely the culprit - and the costs of this issue can add up over time, from more money spent on soaps and detergents to repair and replacement costs for water-using appliances.

    Chlorine Smell

    Chlorine is one of the most common disinfectants used in tap water as part of municipal water treatment processes. It’s generally not a health concern, but it can leave behind an unpleasant taste and bleach-like odor when drinking or bathing. Depending on your water source and treatment facility, different levels of chlorine may be found in your water supply.

    Rust Stains

    Iron is one of the most common solid elements on earth and can often find its way into your water, most commonly for homes using well water. Iron water can leave rust stains on your appliances and clothing as well as in sinks, bathtubs and toilets. You also may notice a metallic taste in your drinking water.

    Water Solutions FAQs

    What happens at a water test?

    Culligan Water® experts know firsthand about common water issues in your area. With a free, in-home water test, they can check levels of water hardness, chlorine, total dissolved solids (TDS), iron and other common issues – with results in 30 minutes or less. Your Culligan Water® expert may also send your test to our IL EPA-certified lab, which can test for a broad range of issues including lead, copper, bacteria, and other potential contaminants.** Your local dealer will make the process clear and simple, so you’re not left wondering how to test water quality at home on your own.

    Why should I test my water?

    Water is one of life's most essential elements. Not only is it central to our own health, it drives multiple aspects of our lives. Whether it’s hydrating our families, cooking our food, or keeping our homes and bodies clean, we need water every day. While some water issues like unpleasant tastes or mineral buildup are obvious, there are many that can easily go undetected. Getting a water test can identify water problems that can lead to adverse health effects, costly home repairs, poorly functioning appliances and more.

    What's the difference between water softening and water filtration?

    Water softening and water filtration are both methods of solving common water issues. The difference between the two is in the problems they are designed to address. Water softening is the process of removing high levels of calcium and magnesium from water (known as hard water), typically through an ion exchange process. While water softening specifically solves hard water problems, water filtration addresses a broad array of water quality issues, from contaminants such as lead, mercury, arsenic, PFOA/PFOS, bacteria and more to aesthetic issues like a chlorine taste, rotten-egg smell, cloudy water and more. Scheduling a free in-home water test can help you determine which solutions are the best fit for your home or business.

    What is reverse osmosis?

    Reverse osmosis (RO) is a multistage process for filtering drinking water. In the reverse osmosis stage specifically, pressure is used to push water through an advanced membrane that can separate contaminants as small as a single atom from the water. These could include heavy metals like lead, mercury and chromium. The RO process can reduce up to 95% of dissolved solids in your home’s water.

    How can I get my water treatment system installed?

    Installation by a trained expert is the best approach. The best way to begin the installation process is to schedule a free water test and consultation with a Culligan Water® expert that understands the local quality of your water. Not only do our local Culligan Water® locations have trained technicians that can expertly install any system, they also provide options for hassle-free maintenance and salt delivery that fit your needs.
