The Importance of a Culligan Inspect n’ Check on Your Water Softener
Besides the occasional refill of salt, your water softener system is not something you think of regularly maintaining. Like most salt based water softeners, the process of how they work is pretty simple. Your hard water flows into the resin tank, the resin tank, which holds resin beads, absorbs all of the “hard” water minerals as they pass through which then allows only “soft” water to go through the system. After some time of this process, the tank does become full of these minerals and needs to be cleaned or “recharged.”
Some signs of your water softener system beginning to lose its momentum may include dry skin, water build up in your sink and bathtub, as well as having to use more soap to get your clothes and dishes spotless. If you are experiencing these symptoms, the best way to resolve the issue is to call your local Culligan Man. Your Culligan Man will come to your home, inspect your system, and diagnose the best solution. Having a Culligan water professional inspect and check your system on a regular basis can prolong the life of your Culligan Water Treatment system as well as save you money. When your water softener system works like it should, it cuts back on money spent on cleaning products and energy bills.

Reverse Osmosis Drinking Water vs. Water Filter Pitcher
What’s all the fuss about Reverse Osmosis (RO)? Why would I want to buy an RO when I could just buy a water filter pitcher? I’m glad you asked – that’s what we were just about to discuss! Let’s compare, shall we?
Space. The space in your refrigerator is limited, and water filter pitchers can often be one of the biggest items in your fridge. With a reverse osmosis system, it hooks on to your sink. This frees up space in your fridge for other things – not drinking water.
Capacity. “There are some pretty big water filter pitchers out there,” you might argue. And you’re right. There are some high-capacity pitchers out there, but no matter the size, you’ll find yourself filling them up more often than you’d like. With an RO, the only thing you’ll be filling up is your glass.
Availability. If you’ve ever used a water filter pitcher, you’ve seen that the filtration isn’t instant. After you fill it up (which you’ll do often – especially when you have friends over), you have to sit and wait for it to finish filtering before pouring another glass. It doesn’t take long, but you still have to wait. Wouldn’t it be better to have a reverse osmosis system to instantly give you fresh, great-tasting water at a moment’s notice?
Filtration. Perhaps the most compelling difference between a water filter pitcher and an RO is that a reverse osmosis drinking water system uses a multi-stage filtration process to remove impurities (ours are typically 3‑5 stages) from your water, while pitchers usually have a single-stage carbon filter. RO drinking water systems have a carbon filter, too, but they also have additional stages to remove everything from sediment to harmful impurities like lead, radium, aesthetic chlorine, chromium‑6, and arsenic.*
Now do you see what the fuss is about? Reverse osmosis drinking water machines provide you with superior convenience and save space in your refrigerator. Contact your local Culligan Man to get more information about a customized reverse osmosis system for your home today!
* Not everybody’s water contains these impurities; yours might not. Schedule a water analysis with your local Culligan Man to find out what’s in your water.
Culligan vs. Big Box
“Why should I have the Culligan Man come to my home and install a reverse osmosis system when I can buy one from a big box store?” It’s the question of many people who are considering a fairly large purchase like a reverse osmosis or water softener system. Big Box Retailers may often have Culligan systems beat on price, but you won’t get the same experience of buying from your local Culligan Man who is committed to both exceptional quality and service. Let’s compare:
Big Box Retailers don’t typically make most of their own products. They resell products. Generally, this leads them to look for a low-price supplier so they can have a reasonable markup for profit. Suppliers, then, may have to cut costs on their products to compete for the Big Box Store business.
An easy way for suppliers to cut costs is the use of cheaper materials and labor. By offshoring manufacturing to companies outside of the United States, suppliers can save on labor, and by designing simple products that utilize cheap materials, suppliers can save on materials. For reverse osmosis systems, this typically translates into using low cost plastics, materials, and components. It also can mean reducing features that enhance efficiency, such as eliminating a cut-off pressure switch and allowing waste water to run to drain constantly. These cost-cutting measures can lead to a lower-quality product with a shorter warranty period.
Big Box Stores may frequently change suppliers to minimize cost and maximize profit. Since suppliers change periodically, repair parts for a product may not be available after only a few years. Additionally, product service often requires the hassle of sending a part back to the manufacturer, not the Big Box Store where it was purchased.
Big Box Stores generally outsource installation and maintenance. They may have agreement with third parties to handle installation, but this is often a competitive bid-type arrangement. The company who can do it cheapest is probably the one that gets the job. In this arrangement, the maintenance person is not usually the same as the one who installed it. When the product malfunctions, inevitably the question arises as to whether it was properly installed or is actually malfunctioning. It can be a challenge to find a maintenance person who is knowledgeable about the product beyond installation.
Culligan offers a refreshing contrast:
Culligan makes and assembles their own products. Some components may come from outside the USA, but all Culligan products are designed and assembled in the USA by strict corporate guidelines which meet or exceed industry standards.
Culligan is ISO 9001 certified and no other water treatment company holds as many patents as Culligan. This ensures quality. These standards are strictly enforced on products, and operational efficiency is the driving goal.
Culligan is its own supplier. Pricing standards are the same for all Culligan dealers. Dealers can control the retail price based on local market demands, but the products are consistent and can be serviced by Culligan.
Only licensed dealers can sell, install, and maintain Culligan products. Dealers and technicians are specifically trained on Culligan products. Culligan International has been operating since 1934 and has more experience and knowledge than almost all other water treatment product vendors.
So how does choosing your local Culligan Man benefit you, the customer?
