Newest Enhancements to Clean Drinking Water

Introducing the Newest Enhancements to Clean Drinking Water

When you’re thirsty and in need of some refreshing, thirst-quenching water, you reach for the fridge and realize there’s no bottled water. Oh no! What do you do since your tap water tastes so bad? It’s time to introduce yourself to in-home water filtration systems featuring reverse osmosis technology.

What is Reverse Osmosis and how does it work with tap water?

In short, Reverse Osmosis filtration is a process in which small particles (such as salts and sediment) are removed from a solution (such as water). Reverse Osmosis uses household water pressure to push tap water through a semi-permeable membrane. The membrane allows only the water to pass through, not the pollutants or contaminants. The impurities are then flushed down the drain leaving you with clean, fresh, purified water that you can enjoy right from your faucet.

You can take advantage of this filtered water by simply installing a Reverse Osmosis Drinking Water System. It’s like having a bottled water company right in your home. Most reverse osmosis systems are installed under a kitchen sink and come with a dedicated sink top faucet exclusively for drinking water. That faucet is installed into a hole in your counter top whether it’s one from a sprayer or soap dispenser. If there are no holes available, one can be drilled through your countertop.

What? You want to drill a hole in the counter of my kitchen or bathroom?

Yes, those used to be the only solutions. But now thanks to Culligan, there is new cutting-edge technology!

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:

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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 Man tipping his hat

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.
