High Iron Water

Does your water have a rusty taste and feel?

Stop rust stains and orange water with Culligan.

Iron enters the water supply from a variety sources - the soil around private wells, corrosion in the pipes themselves and organically occurring reactions with elements in the water. These iron problems exist in many different forms, and knowing what kind of problem you have is essential to properly treating it. If your water comes out of the faucet clear, but turns red or brown after standing, you have “ferrous” iron, also known as “clear-water” iron. If your water is red or yellow when first drawn, you have “ferric” iron, also known as “red- water” iron. Organic iron is usually yellow or brown, but may be colorless.

What Clients Say
When we moved into our current house, it had a Whirlpool water softener already installed. But we still noticed evidence of hard water. So, I contacted Culligan for an in-home consultation. I met with Jerry Gissiner, the Culligan sales rep. He confirmed that our existing softener was hardly doing anything and showed us some options for softening and purifying our water with Culligan systems. Jerry did a great job explaining everything. We decided to go with a Culligan/Pioneer system, and boy was that the right decision. The install team, JoJo and Britt (sorry if I misspelled your names, fellas) did a fantastic job. They removed the old softener, set up an impressive looking softening/purifying system, and put in a reverse osmosis filter under our kitchen sink. We noticed a difference immediately--Jerry wasn't kidding when he said "bottled-water quality drinking water." We are so happy with our purchase. Thanks again Culligan!
