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
Since moving to Texas I've been bothered by the hard water, but now I own expensive appliances I started noticing it was messing with not just me and the showerhead but also leading to trouble with my dishwater that was less than a year old. I decided to finally install a water softener. My parents and grandparents both use Culligan in a different state so I decided they'd be my first stop. They installed the water softener and after a few weeks my dishwasher was already working better. I also went with renting a filter system under the sink since I never cared for the taste of the water here and I'm drinking more water now and not dealing with bottles everywhere. It's been a few months and everything is going well. I've not needed anything fixed to know how that goes, but the first salt delivery went fine.
