Home Water Contamination

You know your home like the back of your hand. But, how much do you know about your home’s water? There are hundreds of impurities that may be lurking in your tap water, with new contaminants emerging every day such as:

  • Arsenic
  • Iron
  • Sulfur
  • Lead
  • Total dissolved solids (TDS)
  • Nitrates

In addition to harming your health, contaminants can also harm your home. Think rust stains, odors, foul-tasting water and corroded pipes.

In a nationwide Culligan Water survey, 75% of consumers expressed concern over water safety, yet only 73% of them took action. Since the average person uses approximately 50 gallons of water every day, knowing what’s in your tap water and finding the right solution is crucial to your wellbeing. Not to mention, cleaner water can also improve the health of your home, all while saving you time, money, and energy.

Arsenic In Water

  • Has been linked to various skin and health conditions

Iron In Water

  • Leaves laundry feeling scratchy and leaves a metallic taste in food and beverages
  • Creates rust stains on fixtures and sinks as well as scale buildup in plumbing
  • Causes appliances to lose efficiency over time as mineral deposits slow them down

Nitrates In Water

  • Goes undetected as it is odorless, tasteless, and colorless
  • Results in the growth of other bacteria like iron, creating even more water problems
