Common Water Problems

My water has a hard texture to it:
Minerals in your water can build up on glassware, shower doors, fixtures, clothes or other items throughout your home. A Culligan® Water Softener, often called a Water Conditioner, will eliminate harmful minerals which can cloud or ruin your glassware. It is the most common water problem in the United States.

I have arsenic in my water:
Arsenic is a semi-metal element in the periodic table. It is odorless and tasteless. It enters drinking water supplies from natural deposits in the earth or from agricultural and industrial practices. Throughout the ages, arsenic has been used in medicine, cosmetics industry and agriculture. It has been used as an insecticide, and it still is used as a desiccant, rodenticide, and herbicide.

My water smells like rotten eggs:
Water impurities such as sulfur, iron and other chemicals will lead to rotten-egg, fishy and chlorine odors in your water. Have them removed with Culligan® whole house carbon filters, reverse osmosis (RO Systems) drinking water systems or water conditioners. Horrible tasting, smelly water can have many causes and sometimes requiring more than one solution.

My pipes look rusty:
Excess iron in your water leaves brown or red rust stains on fixtures & clothing. If you happen to see red precipitates in standing water, like toilets, or see red stains on fixtures and clothes, that means you have iron. Culligan can filter it out with the systems to prevent red stains. Iron or rust in water can be found in different forms: particle iron, clear water iron, etc.

My skin is getting dry:
Many people think that dry skin is just something you have to live with. Constant applying of lotion, creams and sometimes even medications. But did you know the #1 cause of dry skin is hard water? Think about it, if you have dissolved calcium and lime (water hardness) why wouldn't it stick to your skin? If you are seeing hard water deposits on your dishes and in the shower you can bet it is also sticking to your skin, hair and clothing.
