Water Filtration Systems

Great water at every tap.

At Culligan, we work hard to provide you with the purest water solutions. Whether your home’s water comes from a well or municipal system, there is always a chance it harbors harmful substances like chlorine, heavy metals, sediment or pesticides. Problem water from unfiltered systems can come in many forms from cloudiness and sulphur or chlorine odor in your drinking water to corrosive acid water and iron stains on faucets or sinks. Culligan water filtration systems are an easy and inexpensive way to ensure your family is getting clean, pure water all the time.

water filtration systems, water filtersWater filtration is a purification process that involves the filtering of harmful particles from a water supply. The filters reduce iron, hydrogen sulfide and dangerous microorganisms, as well as chlorine taste and odor by separating them from the water that passes through the system. Water filtration systems can improve the overall taste, smell and look of your drinking water, as well as remove chemical substances that can be harmful to your family’s health.

Benefits of Water Filtration Systems

Not only does a water filter improve the overall taste and appearance of your family’s drinking water, it removes synthetic chemicals that can be harmful to your health, as well as minerals that cause water hardness. A water filter is really the only way to ensure that your water is free of contaminants.

It is also an incredibly cost-effective and convenient way to get clean, healthy drinking water, since you don’t have to constantly buy filtered or bottled water. The environmentally-friendly solution reduces plastic bottles in our landfills and is virtually pollution free.

How Water Filtration Works

  • While there are many types of water filters specific to different needs, they basically work the same way. For systems that filter all the water going into a home (Point-of-entry), the process is as follows:
  • First, the water entering a home goes through a pre-filter, which removes larger particulates, contaminants and impurities.
  • The water then undergoes a process to remove chlorine and chlorine-like contaminants. While chlorine plays an important role in water treatment to neutralize biological contamination before it gets to your home, it can make for bad tasting and smelling drinking water.
  • An activated carbon filter will then catch all the other impurities missed in the first two stages. It will also help improve taste quality.
  • Finally, the waste removal process will flush away all the remaining contaminants that have been removed from the water.
