City Water and Water Treatment (Final Barrier)

It’s generally accepted that, if you have city water, you don’t need in-home water conditioning. But is it true? Certainly municipal water treatment centers do a good job of cleaning up your water, but is that all you need?

These are worthwhile questions. So let’s ask them. What’s to be done with contaminants that may enter your water between the treatment facility and your home? What about the recent concerns that water fluoridation, sometimes added to water in hopes of preventing tooth decay, may be harmful to brain development?

Culligan Lady with Great-Tasting WaterThe Water Quality Association (WQA) recommends that consumers adopt a Final Barrier way of thinking about water treatment. With this kind of system in place, you, your family, your appliances, and your home are better protected from contaminants that can enter your water between your local municipal water treatment center and the point at which you use your water in your home. The Final Barrier strategy in water treatment also helps to remove aesthetic contaminants – those funny tastes and smells in your water that aren’t necessarily harmful to your health, but that aren’t desirable in your water either. After all, your water shouldn’t smell like a swimming pool, and you wouldn’t want to make tea out of rotten-egg-smelling, sulfur-laden water.

Culligan can be the provider of your Final Barrier solution. Culligan offers a variety of systems to help remove everything from the bad tastes and odors of aesthetic contaminants to the removal of chlorine that can be harmful to your skin, hair, and clothing. These solutions range from Point-of-Use (POU) Reverse Osmosis (RO) drinking water systems (some of which are WQA Certified!) to High-Efficiency (HE) Municipal water conditioners.

Want to learn more about what we’ve discussed? Contact your local Culligan Man. Your local water expert can perform a water analysis at your home to be able to recommend the best Final Barrier solution for your particular situation.C With so many aspects of your life reliant on your home’s water, isn’t it better if you talk to the experts about the best way to get the best water for your home? Even if you already have a water softener, you may be able to get a special deal on a trade-in. Call your Culligan Man to find out more. Just remember, “Hey Culligan Man!”

Thanksgiving with the Culligan Family

Family at Thanksgiving
As Thanksgiving approaches here in the States, the importance of family is often brought to our attention whether we spend the holiday with our families or not. Although our family gatherings are rarely as picturesque as a Norman Rockwell Saturday Evening Post cover, Thanksgiving often has a way of bringing our families together in ways other seasons simply don’t.

Your local Culligan Man is committed to caring for you as if you were family. Culligan has the resources to give you big-company service, and is local enough to give you small-business care. With Culligan in your neighborhood, Culligan can provide you with excellent water care in your home.

Culligan’s water softening systems can be customized to remove impurities like iron, sulfur, and even arsenic from your local water. Culligan offers drinking water solutions that are well suited to meet your local needs: bottled water can often be delivered straight to your door. Additionally, a bottle-free cooler system or an under-sink reverse-osmosis system can provide you with low-maintenance, high-quality water in your home without the water deliveries.

We here at Culligan make it our goal to treat you like family, not just during Thanksgiving, but all year. As your local water experts, we try to provide you with the best of care, whether that involves bottled water delivery or performing repairs and maintenance on your Culligan whole house filtration system.

We hope you’ll consider joining the Culligan family this Thanksgiving, and we sincerely hope that your Thanksgiving is a great time spent with your family.

Water Contamination, a Rampant Problem in California

Following an official report that the water supply of more than half of all Californians begins contaminated, residents are reminded that they can find treatment products that have undergone independent testing for effectiveness.

“Nothing is more basic than clean and safe water,” said Dave Haataja, executive director of the Water Quality Association. “With final barrier protection in the home, residents can feel assured that the water they are drinking has gone through rigorous treatment.”

The Associated Press reported last week that “more than half of California’s population relies on a drinking water supply contaminated by arsenic, nitrates and other contaminants, though most communities blend or treat their water to make it safe.” The information comes from a new report by the State Water Resources Control board.

Arsenic was the most-detected naturally occurring contaminant, while nitrate was the human-caused contaminant detected the most.

“With so much water contaminated at its supply source, people are going to feel more than ever the need for final treatment at the tap,” said Haataja. “We have dedicated our resources to stringent testing overseen by outside professionals to help ensure consumers are getting what they expect.”

WQA tests and certifies products for effectiveness. The association uses independent standards established by the NSF International/American National Standards Institute (NSF/ ANSI). Products that have passed testing can be found at wqa.org.

Nitrate in drinking water can be responsible for a temporary blood disorder in infants called blue baby syndrome and can be dangerous to those with autoimmune deficiencies and cancer. It presently appears that two treatment methods, ion exchange and reverse osmosis, are most practical and economically feasible for nitrate removal.

Culligan, your local water expert, has both the tools and experience necessary to make sure your drinking water is safe for consumption. We offer a free, in-home water analysis that allows us to diagnosis your home’s water. Give your local Culligan Man a call today at (916) 877-4077 or fill out the contact form on any of our pages to be contacted.
