Does your water softener need an upgrade?

culligan-he-softenerIs your water softener outdated and inefficient? Is it costing you more money than necessary? When is the last time you had your water softener inspected? Now is as good a time as any.

Your water softener should be inspected once a year to assure it’s running properly and efficiently. If it is, you’re going to reap the benefits, the largest of which is soft water. But along with that soft water comes lower water and electric bills, easier cleaning, softer skin, hair and laundry, better-tasting water, and sparkling dishes.

But if your softener is old and inefficient, it’s time to consider an upgrade. The modern technology found in a high efficiency water softener is going to make an even bigger difference you can feel at home and in your wallet. The Culligan High Efficiency Water Softener, for example, is the world’s most efficient water softener. Why? Check out the benefits:

  • Low Maintenance - Automatic service notifications sent directly to your Culligan Man.
  • Lower Bills - Spend less every month on energy, water, detergents, shampoo, and more.
  • More Control - Custom water softness where you want it, automatically adjusted for how you use it most.

Is your softener ready for an upgrade? Follow this three-step process to find out:

First, look at your costs. Take a peek at your water and electric bills and your salt usage. Are you buying more salt because you have to fill the tank more often? If you’re seeing costs creep up, you’re using excess water. That’s a pretty big sign that your water softener is not as efficient as it could be.

Then, have your water softener inspected.  Call your local Culligan Man. He’ll inspect your water softener and test your home’s water quality. If there’s an issue, he’ll be able to provide you with solutions.

And lastly, make sure you understand modern technology. Water softeners used to be sized for the number of people in a home. Have your kids moved away to college? Are there fewer people using water at home? Your softener may be using more water and electricity than necessary. The Culligan HE can monitor for changes in water consumption, adjusting automatically.

What are POU and POE filtration systems?

Culligan ManWhen it comes to water filtration, there are several options. Some you might know, others you’ve maybe not considered, but all of them easily explained by your local Culligan Man. They are the water experts, after all.

To help you better understand water filtration lingo, we’ll start with the basics. Water filtration products fall under two categories: point-of-entry and point-of-use. Do you know the difference?

We’ll make it easy for you:

Point-of-entry (POE) water filtration products are systems that treat all of the water used in a home or single building. Culligan offers a wide range of whole house water filters that deliver cleaner water to every tap and water appliance in the house.

Point-of-use (POU) water filtration products are systems designed to treat only the water coming from the tap or water appliances to which it is connected. Culligan has a number of point-of-use drinking water systems, such as reverse osmosis systems, faucet filters, plumbed-in single tap solutions including shower filters, drinking water coolers, and drinking water filtration. These can often serve more than one purpose, most commonly filtering water for a drinking water tap in the kitchen, plus an icemaker or refrigerator line.

Got questions? Call your Culligan Man to find out which solution is best for you.

Culligan Nation Getting Creative on YouTube

Have you checked out Culligan Nation on YouTube? Head on over and see what we’re up to over there. We recently shared a couple new videos that help Culligan explain water filtration in a simpler, more fun way.

The first video shows not only how hard water gets into your home, but how it means more cleaning, more cleaning products, and build-up on water-using appliances and fixtures.

 

The second video also shows how hard water gets into your home, but focuses on the effect it has on your hair, skin and clothes.

 

Pretty neat, huh? Know someone who could benefit from a water softener? Educate by sharing!

Illinois Culligan Man teaches 7th graders about water treatment

Our Culligan men and women are in cities in towns across North America, and chances are, they’re out there doing good in their communities.

Last month, Culligan Man Erich Delang from Rock Valley Culligan in Loves Park, Ill., had a chance to make an impression on young minds. He was invited to Skyview Center School to teach the 7th grade science class all about water treatment.

“We had such a great time — what a great group of students! They even got to make their own mini water softeners,” he said about the experience.

Who would have thought learning about water treatment would be so fun? We bet those 7th graders didn’t! It’s never too early to spread the good word about Culligan’s water treatment. Thanks for stepping up to the plate, Rock Valley Culligan!

Tips from Culligan: How to drink enough water each day

Drink Culligan waterOur lives are busy. Sometimes it’s easy to forget to drink water throughout the day. Have you ever reached the end of your day and realized you haven’t had any water? It’s likely you feel it. Dehydration has all kinds of nasty side effects — fatigue, headaches, irritability. However, the benefits of staying on top of your hydration are worth the effort to keep great-tasting Culligan water close at hand.

If you have a tough time remembering to drink water throughout the day, try some of these tips:

  • Set a calendar alert either on your phone or your computer for a certain time each day. “Quick! Drink a glass of water” every day at 10 a.m. is a good way to remind yourself.
  • Create a goal. Set a goal to drink four full glasses of water during the work day and keep track on a c
    hart. Sometimes the simple act of checking off a tally is motivation enough to get there.
  • Make it easy — keep an insulated water bottle full on your desk and take sips from it all day.
  • Get competitive. Make a bet with a friend or coworker to see who can drink more water throughout the course of the day.
  • Drink one glass of water before dinner and another after dinner. Drinking a full glass before snacking can also keep you from eating to much.

Hopefully you’ve got Culligan water at home, and if you don’t have access at work, talk to the powers that be about Culligan Bottled Water Coolers or Bottle-Free Coolers. Because as we always say, drinking eight glasses of water a day is only good if your water is!

10 Ways Culligan Water Systems Will Benefit You

Culligan Water SystemsIt’s Valentine’s Day. In light the love and happiness, let us count the ways Culligan and its products are a benefit to you and your loved ones. Keep yourself, your family and your home healthy and happy this year.

1. You’ll use less soap and cleaning products when you have a Culligan water softener.

2. Want softer, more manageable hair? Without a buildup of hard water minerals in your hair, you will!

3. Keeping hydrated is essential to your health, and water is the perfect alternative to sugary sodas and juices. Culligan’s whole home filtration systems will give your family access to great-tasting water at every tap.

4. If you have sensitive skin, soft water reduces the irritation from soaps and shampoos.

5. The plumbing and water-using appliances in your home will last longer with soft water, which reduces mineral buildup that clogs pipes and lowers water pressure.

6. Do you color your hair? Having a water softener in your home will help colored hair stay bright and radiant for longer.

7. Razor burn is a pain — literally. With soft water, razors glide more easily across the skin. The blades will last longer, too!

8. If you’ve got problem water, your local Culligan Man will come to your home to perform a free water test and determine the best solution for you based on its results.

9. Are your dishes spotty when you take them out of the dishwasher? Bet you have hard water. A softener will remove harmful minerals that can cloud or etch your glassware.

10. Clothes last longer, stay softer and remain brighter with soft water – hard water leaves mineral particles in the weave of most fabrics causing them to look dull and dingy.
