Bad Tasting Water
Does your water have an unpleasant taste?
Improve the taste of your water with Culligan.
Before your water enters your home, it can pick up bad tasting contaminants - from private wells, miles of underground utility pipes or even the local municipal water source itself. Many municipalities add chlorine to offset the problems caused by these contaminants, but this only makes your water taste worse! You may not be able to see these contaminants, but when you taste the water, something is obviously not right.
Common water taste problems include –
A sour, salty, bitter or metallic taste can be a sign of high levels of total dissolved solids (TDS) in your water, normally chlorides, sulfates and bicarbonates. Signs of TDS water problems include:
- A sour, salty, bitter or metallic taste due to total dissolved solids (TDS)
- A "bleachy" taste due to chlorine added in by municipalities
- A musty, woody taste due to organic contaminants like algae
- A soapy or chemical taste due to contaminated private wells
Bad tasting water has many causes, and Culligan has the right water treatment equipment for every situation. Whether you need a Culligan® Reverse Osmosis Drinking Water System that removes particulates smaller than a micron, or a Culligan® Carbon Filter that removes the taste of chlorine, your local Culligan Man™ has the perfect solution for you.

What Clients Say
We have been Culligan customers for about 15 years now and we are so happy with this Company. If we ever had concerns about our system (which is not often), they sent someone to our home in a matter of days. We have actually had the same service tech in the time we have done business with them. He's awesome, helpful and friendly. It means a lot when employees are with the same company for that long. We highly recommend Culligan for their service and their amazing Culligan water. Thank you!!!Mike and Dell
