You Need a Culligan Water Softener!

What is a water softener? Why do I need one? Is it worth it? If you’ve asked yourself any of these questions, then this blog is for you! Culligan at the Lake of the Ozarks is here to tell you about all the benefits of having a water softener in your home, and why you should choose the best water provider at the Lake of the Ozarks. If you’re interested in having a water softener installed, call us at (573) 346-5221 or read on for the answers to all your questions!



What is a water softener?

Most of us get our water via a public water company or by a well on your property. These water sources typically contain minerals that make the water “hard.” A water softener is a device that removes certain minerals from your water to soften the hard water and reduces mineral buildup in your pipes. Your local Culligan water expert offers range of water softener products that fits your needs, wallet and for every size of household.

Why do I need one?

Water softeners do much more than just break down mineral buildup - having a quality water softener visibly affects several aspects of you and your family’s life. Though the signs of hard water are not always obvious, they can have detrimental effects on your home and your family. Hard water can leave spots on your glassware and make your glasses cloudy, even when they come straight out of the dishwasher.

Softer water helps soap scum and lime break down around your sink and shower drains and faucets. Not only does the buildup look bad, hard water is harmful for your pipes and fixtures. Softer water can extend the life of your appliances by stopping the effects of corrosion. Hard water can also clog your pores when washing your hands. Without a water softener, your skin can become dry and itchy and your hair can become brittle and damaged.

The same thing can happen to your clothes in the washer - Your laundry can become stiff and hard due to excessive calcium and magnesium in your water. By using a water softener, you will also be able to reduce your detergent use, saving some serious dollars. Now, you have the chance to provide you and your family the highest quality of life possible with a Culligan water softener. Why wouldn’t you want cleaner dishes, shinier hair and brighter clothes?




Is it worth it?

By removing these harsh minerals, you are not only saving you and your family daily hassles, but you’re also SAVING MONEY! The Culligan® High Efficiency Water Softener is the most efficient water softener on the market. With your brand new water softener, you’ll save more money on water, salt, and electricity with patented smart technology. Our HE softeners are nearly 50% more efficient than other typical time clock regeneration softeners and use up to 50% less salt.

Tired of walking all the way down to the basement or crawlspace to make minor adjustments on your water softener? Try controlling your softener from anywhere in the house! Our intelligent remote display on our Culligan® High Efficiency Water Softener alerts you to any issues and allows you to remotely make various adjustments. Our Dial-a-Softness® control function allows you to adjust your water softness to your ideal level, never too hard or too soft. With all these intelligent functions, it seems like a no-brainer to us!

Not sure when to call your local Culligan Man? With your new water softener, our Aqua-Sensor® technology automatically detects changes in your water conditions and makes softening adjustments accordingly. When it’s time for periodic maintenance, an optional modem will alert your Lake of the Ozarks Culligan Man! So no need to worry about making any appointments.


Hopefully, now your only question is, “When can I get my water softener?!” There are plenty of benefits to having a water softener in your home, and Culligan at theLake of the Ozarks is here to provide you with the best equipment. We’ve been serving the Lake area since 1975, so we know what we’re doing when it comes to high-quality water. Our primary focus here at the Lake of the Ozarks is customer satisfaction, so don’t hesitate to reach out to your local Culligan Man!

5 Tips and Tricks to Jazz Up Your Coffee

For many people, having "a nice cup of joe" is how they start their day. This is how they jumpstart their morning and get their selves ready to "conquer their daily obligations." We think it's safe to say that coffee is thought of as a required daily beverage for some people, but what can make your coffee taste even better? The best water provider at the Lake of the Ozarks is here to give you a few tips and tricks to jazz up your coffee. If you really want to make your coffee taste better, call Culligan at the Lake of the Ozarks. Just the simple change of water could be the solution you've been searching for.


5 Tips and Tricks to Jazz Up Your Coffee


Add butter

It is known that adding butter to your morning dose of coffee can boost energy and give you a unique taste to enjoy.

Add maple syrup.

If you are more of a sweet coffee drinker, try adding maple syrup or maple sugar. Stir it in and enjoy your sweet, delicious cup of coffee.

Add coconut milk.

If you are lactose intolerant but would like to still sweeten up your coffee somehow, try adding coconut milk. The texture can be fairly close to whole milk, just use it sparingly as it can contain a hefty amount of fat. Coconut milk also provides a good amount of Vitamin C, E, and B.

Add vanilla extract.

Many people prefer sweet coffee, but if you'd prefer to try something different than the traditional dose of creamer and sugar, consider vanilla extract.

Add ice cream.

Who doesn't love ice cream? While it may sound unconventional to add ice cream to your coffee, this can be a great way to cool it down on a warm day and turn it into a fun, dessert drink.


Make Your Coffee Taste Better with Culligan Water!


Culligan® water treatment systems change everything - from laundry and showering to drinking and cooking. Having quality water in your home can make all the difference when making your coffee. While Culligan at the Lake of the Ozarks has been solving the area's toughest water problems for over four decades, we have the support of Culligan International that actually invented the water softening process in 1936. Together, you can count on us for the finest water treatment equipment and service. Culligan’s only business is water treatment.

The Culligan Solution Center: Part 2

We hope you enjoyed Part 1 of our Culligan Solution Center blog series, where we introduced you to many possible issues that can arise with your water and what you can do to solve those issues. Keep reading to learn about more possible issues that can arise and how to solve them. If you find yourself needing a quality water softener at the Lake of the Ozarks, call Culligan at the Lake of the Ozarks.


The Culligan Solution Center: Part 2


Poor/Bad Taste
Does your tap water taste bad? If so, there could be contaminants such as chlorine or sulfur in your water. Let Culligan recommend a drinking water solution for your home.

Chlorine Smell
Chlorine is one of the most commonly used water disinfectants use by water companies. However, it can leave an unpleasant taste in your water when it reaches your home. Let your Culligan Man recommend which water solution is right for your home!

Salty Taste
Water that tastes salty could be caused by sulfate concentration levels and geographic tendencies. Luckily, Culligan can remove the salty taste from your water. Let your Culligan Man recommend which water solution is right for your home!

Bitter Taste
Bitter tasting water is often caused when the pH of your water is out-of-sync. Culligan has the equipment to fix the bitterness in your water. Let your Culligan Man recommend which water solution is right for your home!

Lead
Lead rarely occurs naturally in water; it usually gets into the water from the delivery system. Lead pipes are the main contributor to high lead levels in tap water. Other sources include parts of the water delivery system such as lead solder used to join copper pipes, brass in faucets, coolers, and valves. Let your Culligan Man recommend a water solution to solve your lead problem.

pH (Acidic/Alkaline)
Every liquid has a pH, including your home’s water

Whether the pH is too high or too low, it can have damaging effects on your water

Rusty Stain
Iron is one of the most common types of problem water and can leave your fixtures and tubs with rust stains. Culligan has solutions geared towards removing the iron from your water. Find out which solution is right for your home!

Blue/Green Stain
Self-explanatory, blue and green stains in your tubs and sinks

Often caused by low pH levels in your water

Colored Water
Water should be clear, if not why would you drink it?

The only way to find out what’s making your water the wrong color is with a water analysis
Did you know Culligan offers a Free Water Analysis?



Laundry Stains
If your laundry is coming out of the washer with stains, it could be your water

Iron is just one of the possible reasons for your water damaging your clothes
Don’t ruin your favorite shirt, get your water tested!


Musty Smell
Water may smell musty or sometimes described as fishy

This can be caused by iron and copper in your home’s water

Get your water tested to determine what’s causing your water to smell
