What Is ACTUALLY In Your Tap Water?

You cook with it, drink it, bathe with it, and clean with it, but when is the last time you took a close look at what is actually in your tap water? In most cases, the water coming out of your tap consists of more than just "water." Your trusted water quality specialists at the Lake of the Ozarks are here to help educate you on the various components that are sometimes found in tap water.

Where Does Tap Water Come From?

Tap water comes from one of two sources: ground water or surface water. Ground water is pulled from deep underground, and surface water is taken from above-ground sources such as lakes, rivers, and ponds. No matter where you water comes from, it should undergo an in-depth cleaning and decontamination process before it ever hits your faucets; however, mistakes can and do happen on occasion. When these mistakes occur, you and your family may be subjected to dangerous chemicals, minerals, and/or other substances.

What Contaminants Are Found In Tap Water?

While it is highly possible that your tap water is safe and contaminant-free, it is also possible that your water could contain harmful substances. Here are a few of the dangerous substances that are sometimes found in tap water:

Copper or Lead
People were largely unaware of the health risks over-exposure to copper and lead posed before the 1970s, and many homes constructed in those times were built with copper pipes and lead joints. Unfortunately, water running through these types of pipes picks up trace minerals, and we now know that consuming these elements can lead to health challenges. People who drink the tap water in these homes may subject their bodies to the dangers these contaminants pose.

Yes, you read that right. Though not incredibly common in our area, arsenic can be found in tap water all across the United States. Arsenic is classified by the International Academy for Research on Cancer as a Category I Carcinogen, which means it will definitely cause cancer in individuals who consume too much of it. There is a strict maximum allowable arsenic content for tap water in the U.S., but unfortunately some states exceed this level on occasion.

Fluoride is a chemical that is known to help prevent tooth decay, but unfortunately is also known to be toxic to both adults and children. Nevertheless, in addition to being used in toothpaste, it is frequently found in tap and bottled water (and even certain baby formulas as well). It is often intentionally added to water to help prevent tooth decay, but the potential health concerns that can arise from consuming too much fluoride may far outweigh the potential benefits it offers.

No matter where you live or what water treatment system you use, chlorine is almost always added to the water as a way of killing and eliminating other bacteria/contaminants. Unfortunately, chlorine in itself is also a contaminant. When consumed in significant quantities, it has been shown to cause serious cell damage. Certain levels of chlorine are considered safe for use in drinking water, but some water suppliers sometimes exceed these limits.

Some people are especially at risk for developing adverse health affects as a result of contaminants in their water. According to WebMD, examples of these individuals include...
  • Pregnant women and their fetuses
  • People with auto-immune diseases
  • Children
  • Infants
  • People who are undergoing chemotherapy

How Can You Find Out What Is In Your Tap Water?

If you use your home's tap water for drinking and cooking, many experts recommend getting your water tested annually to ensure that it remains free from dangerous contaminants. If you are interested in testing your water quality at the Lake of the Ozarks, contact your local Culligan Man. Our free water analysis is an effective, no-obligation way to learn what is in your water.

We offer drinking water systems, water softeners, water filtration systems, and total home systems to ensure that your water will provide the clean, safe hydration your family needs to survive.

Why Choose Culligan?

When it comes to water quality at the Lake of the Ozarks, you want to be confident that you're choosing the company best equipped to meet - and exceed - your needs. Culligan Lake of the Ozarks has been serving the Lake Area for over forty years, and we are proud to provide safe, clean, refreshing drinking water and effective, affordable home water systems to our valued customers. 

If you are currently shopping for a drinking water company to care for your needs, here are a few reasons why we hope you'll consider your Culligan Man at the Lake of the Ozarks.

Good "Old-Fashioned" Customer Service
Owner Dave Crane and our staff still believe in good "old-fashioned" customer service. Our customers are our number one priority - always. After installation, technicians regularly monitor the water and perform maintenance to make sure that the Culligan systems continue to do the job. Technical advice and professional service are always close at hand. If we make a mistake for any reason, we promise to own up to it. We always have adequate insurance to cover any associated costs, and we will take immediate steps to accommodate your needs.

You Get What You Pay For (In The Best Possible Way)
There are three types of businesses in the water treatment industry: those that use high-pressure sales tactics (and have high prices to go with it), those with low-pressure sales (and accompanying low prices), and those who fall in the middle. Culligan Lake of the Ozarks strives to maintain a balance in the middle. Here's why:
  • The prices offered by high-pressure sales companies are often exorbitant. The reason for this is simple; their marketing costs are so high that they must charge more for their products in order to make a profit. While the logic is easy to understand, it often puts the customer in an unnecessarily uncomfortable and expensive situation.
  • The lowest prices on the market are often offered by low-pressure sales companies. These are typically the ones with 1-5 employees, and may be operated by someone you knew previously as your plumber or builder. The problem with these companies is that they often do not have adequate insurance to cover any mistakes they made, and they may not be able to withstand the market fluctuations that every industry experiences at some point. They may be great to buy from today, but they may not be around to help you in a few years when your systems are in need of maintenance.

You get what you pay for when you use your local Culligan Man; we will never try to sell you a service that you don't need, and most of our products are backed up by a Limited Lifetime Warranty. Culligan has been in business for over 80 years nationally and over 40 years locally. Thanks to this established presence, you can be confident that we will be here to continue to serve your needs for years to come.

The Most Trusted Name In The Water Quality Business
While we may not be the only water treatment company at the Lake of the Ozarks, we are proud (and humbled) to be the most recognized name in our industry. On a national level, Culligan touts 90% market recognition and is one of the top 300 most recognizable names in all of marketing (alongside other big names like Coca-Cola, Nike, and Apple). 

Contact Your Culligan Man For All Your Water-Related Needs!
Our reputation wasn't built overnight, and we take great pride in carefully maintaining it. If you are looking for a water softener, home water treatment system, or any other service related to drinking water at the Lake of the Ozarks, we sincerely hope you'll give your Culligan Man a call. Our talented and dedicated staff will be here to assist you in any way we possibly can. We truly look forward to serving you!

4 Signs You May Have A Problem With Your Water Quality

Safe, clean drinking water at the Lake of the Ozarks is something a lot of us are fortunate enough to be able to take for granted. We may not even give our water supply a second thought - that is, not until something happens that makes us question the cleanliness or safety of our water. 

Contaminated water can cause a number of problems in the home, affecting everything from your appliances to your family's health. As a result, it is important that you always remain vigilant and head of any potential problems before they have a chance to develop into something truly serious. Our water specialists at the Lake of the Ozarks are here to help with these common warning signs to watch out for.

4 Signs You May Have A Problem With Your Water Quality

1. Hard Water Spots
Hard water can leave behind mineral deposits (usually lime and calcium) that may build up and cause problems within your appliances and pipes. Over time, hard water can also negatively impact other aspects of your home life, such as your water bill and cleaning efforts. If you notice decreased flow in your pipes or spots on your drinking glasses after they come out of the dishwasher, you may have a hard water problem.

2. Rust Stains
Second to hard water, high iron content is one of the most common problems with water quality at the Lake of the Ozarks. In high concentrations, excessive iron can cause numerous problems, including clogged pipes, strange-tasting food and beverages, and stains on sinks, tubs, and laundry. If you notice reddish or brownish stains where water has been or a metallic taste in your water, you may have a high concentration of iron.

3. Chlorine Smell
In an effort to clear the water of any contaminants (such as bacteria, parasites, and viruses), most city water treatment facilities apply a small amount of chlorine to the water to decontaminate it. Ideally, this amount of chlorine should be small enough that it is not distinguishable by taste. However, some treatment facilities get a little over-zealous with the chlorine dosages, resulting in poor-tasting drinking water. Having a good home water filtration system can help overcome this.

4. Rotten Egg Smell
Have you noticed your water smelling or tasting like rotten eggs? This can be caused from a high concentration of hydrogen sulfide gas or sulfate minerals. Sometimes it is noticeable when the water is first turned on, sometimes only when hot water is used, and sometimes it is constantly present. Though unpleasant to smell and taste, the sulfide-oxidizing bacteria commonly found with sulfate minerals are not known to cause health risks to adults. (They can cause a laxative effect that can be problematic in newborns). However, hydrogen sulfide gas is a toxic substance that can lead to severe nausea, illness, and (in extreme cases) even death.
