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 is proud to introduce Clear Link PRO™! Clear Link delivers reverse osmosis drinking water directly to your kitchen faucet without a dedicated faucet or drilling any holes. So, whether you are renting a home, going to college, or buying a home, Clear Link gives you the opportunity for the highest quality drinking water without compromising your countertops.

How does the Culligan Clear Link System work?

This newly enhanced product is a wireless water purification system that’s activated at the touch of a button. ClearLink PRO™ utilizes wireless technology to switch back and forth between unfiltered and filtered water. For filtered water, all you need to do is turn on the water, push the ClearLink PRO button, and the system redirects your reverse osmosis drinking water through your main faucet.

This no-drill solution is perfect for people that don’t want to alter their countertops or don’t own their homes. With the great wireless technology that the ClearLink PRO™ offers, you can literally pick up and move the button to any location you would like. It has a sleek design and comes in a variety of finishes to match your home décor. Thanks to Culligan, you now have more options for having clear, refreshing and 99.9% contaminant-free water right in your home. Better yet, it costs just pennies a pint compared to expensive store bought bottled water.

Chloramine vs. Chlorine Water Treatment

Information On Chlorine & Chloramine

All municipalities are required to make sure their water is treated for bacteria and safe for human consumption. Historically, chlorine has been the chemical used for this purpose, but in recent years, many municipalities have moved to chloramine for anti-bacterial protection. Chloramine is a combination of chlorine and ammonia. Both chlorine and chloramine add a noticeable, distinct taste and odor that many people find distasteful.

How Do You Treat Chlorine & Chloramine?

Culligan Water TreatmentTypically, carbon-based filters can be used to remove both chlorine and chloramine in the home before the water is used for drinking or cooking. This removes the taste of the chlorine and chloramine, while still allowing them to act as antibacterial agents in your water. However, home owners must be careful to choose the correct type of carbon filter. While standard carbon filters will treat chlorine, these standard carbon filters will not remove chloramine. A special type of carbon is required to treat chloramine, and most local big-box and hardware stores do not carry these types of carbon filters.

Culligan Treats Chlorine & Chloramine

Culligan knows how to treat both chlorine and chloramine, and it also knows what treatment solutions to use in your area. The removal of chlorine and chloramine can be accomplished with either a Culligan “point-of-use” (POU) filter – typically under sink – or a Point of Entry Whole House Filter  – attached to your home’s main water supply. Let Culligan make a recommendation as to which is best for your situation, and trust Culligan’s expertise to know how to treat your local water. Contact your local Culligan Man to make sure you get the best possible water for your home and family.

City Water and Water Treatment (Final Barrier)

It’s generally accepted that, if you have city water, you don’t need in-home water conditioning. But is it true? Certainly municipal water treatment centers do a good job of cleaning up your water, but is that all you need?

These are worthwhile questions. So let’s ask them. What’s to be done with contaminants that may enter your water between the treatment facility and your home? What about the recent concerns that water fluoridation, sometimes added to water in hopes of preventing tooth decay, may be harmful to brain development?

Culligan Lady with Great-Tasting WaterThe Water Quality Association (WQA) recommends that consumers adopt a Final Barrier way of thinking about water treatment. With this kind of system in place, you, your family, your appliances, and your home are better protected from contaminants that can enter your water between your local municipal water treatment center and the point at which you use your water in your home. The Final Barrier strategy in water treatment also helps to remove aesthetic contaminants – those funny tastes and smells in your water that aren’t necessarily harmful to your health, but that aren’t desirable in your water either. After all, your water shouldn’t smell like a swimming pool, and you wouldn’t want to make tea out of rotten-egg-smelling, sulfur-laden water.

Culligan can be the provider of your Final Barrier solution. Culligan offers a variety of systems to help remove everything from the bad tastes and odors of aesthetic contaminants to the removal of chlorine that can be harmful to your skin, hair, and clothing. These solutions range from Point-of-Use (POU) Reverse Osmosis (RO) drinking water systems (some of which are WQA Certified!) to High-Efficiency (HE) Municipal water conditioners.

Want to learn more about what we’ve discussed? Contact your local Culligan Man. Your local water expert can perform a water analysis at your home to be able to recommend the best Final Barrier solution for your particular situation.Culligan Aqua-Cleer Reverse Osmosis Drinking Water System With so many aspects of your life reliant on your home’s water, isn’t it better if you talk to the experts about the best way to get the best water for your home? Even if you already have a water softener, you may be able to get a special deal on a trade-in. Call your Culligan Man to find out more. Just remember, “Hey Culligan Man!”
