8 Strategies To Maintain Proper Hydration

Keeping hydrated is extremely important for making sure your body performs at its best both mentally and physically. You should drink enough water to replenish what your body loses naturally on a daily basis.

Dehydration can result in fatigue, loss of concentration, and headaches. Our water company at the Lake of the Ozarks can help you to avoid this. It can be difficult for some people to make themselves drink enough water, but your Culligan Man at the Lake of the Ozarks has a few tips to help you out.  

1. Drink before you get thirsty.

Once your body feels thirsty, that means you are already on your way to dehydration. Make drinking water a habit so that you never get to that point. 

2. Drink before, during, and after exercising.

The best way to avoid dehydration while you are exercising or doing any other type of strenuous activity is to fully hydrate yourself before you begin. Also drink plenty of water periodically during the activity, and when it is over. The same goes for being outside on a very hot day. If you have been sweating excessively, it's a good idea to supplement your water with a sports drink containing electrolytes.   

3. Eat hydrating foods.

Foods that have a high water content can also aid in keeping you hydrated. Some of these include watermelon, cantaloupe, grapefruit, cucumbers, grapes, tomatoes, soups, stews, and yogurts. 

4. Flavor your water.

A wonderful way to entice your taste buds into consuming more water is to infuse it with your favorite flavors. Adding lemon, lime, cucumber slices, or even mint to a pitcher of water in the refrigerator will make it taste delicious, and there will always be a nice treat waiting for you when you need something to drink. 

5. Keep track of your water intake.

You can purchase a water bottle that has ounce markings on the side so that you see exactly how much water you are drinking. Some even have a way for you to keep track when you drink multiple bottles in the same day. Another option is to fill a gallon container every morning and see how much you can finish before you go to bed. 

6. Drink water with every meal.

Get in the habit of having a glass of water in addition to any other beverages at every meal. If you drink an entire glass of water before the meal, this has been proven to cut down on the amount of calories you eat because your stomach already feels a bit full. 

7. Start your morning with a glass of water.

Rehydrating first thing in the morning is refreshing and a great pick-me-up for your body to start the day. Plus, you're already on your way to fulfilling the recommended 8 glasses a day before you even sit down to breakfast.

8. Carry a water bottle with you at all times.

Always having a water bottle easily within reach is a great way to motivate yourself to stay hydrated. The more convenient you make it for yourself, the easier it will be.

Culligan Lake of the Ozarks makes it easy for you to have access to the best drinking water available. We offer a wonderful variety of home water solutions, including drinking water systems and water filtration systems. You can even order bottled water online to be delivered to your home for as little as $24.95 a month. That includes the use of one of our water cooler dispensers for free. Let us help to keep you hydrated so that you can look and feel your very best.

Your Pets Need Filtered Water Too!

Pets are like a member of the family. We do what we can to make sure they are safe and healthy. We take them to the vet, we feed them good food and we take them on plenty of walks. However, what kind of water are you allowing them to drink? Do you fill up their water bowl with tap water? Lake of the Ozarks' water is extremely hard. Not only is it hard, but there are lots of contaminants in the water as well, such as lead, copper, fluoride and chlorine. In today's blog, your Lake of the Ozarks Culligan Man explains some of the reasons why you should give your pets filtered water.

1. To Help Regulate Water  Intake

Water is an important part of a dog’s diet. Dogs can have serious ailments if they don't get the appropriate amount of water. Not drinking enough water can cause them to get sick. However, too much water can cause stomach issues like bloating. Having cold, filtered water can help them control the amount of water they intake and keep them healthy.

2. Because It Tastes Better

Pets can be finicky when it comes to the water they drink. You may not think it's true, though, especially if your furry friend drinks from the toilet. Believe it or not, pets sometimes prefer to drink out of the toilet than the tap water that has been sitting out in their drinking bowl. This is because the water in the bowl is usually nice and cold, plus it has fewer chemicals. The longer tap water sits out, the more chemicals dissipate. You don’t need to wait around for the contaminants to dissolve, though, just give them fresh filtered water.

3. To Avoid Contaminents

Tap water, as we already discussed, has many different contaminants. Bottled water is shockingly less regulated than tap water, so you may not be drinking spring mountain water like the label suggests. A filter can get rid of all of these contaminants, making the water safe for all who drink it. If you are out and about with your pet, fill up a water bottle with filtered water for them to drink.

4. Because a Healthy Pet is a Happy Pet

When you give your pet filtered water, you are helping them stay healthy. Filtered water keeps your pets free from contaminants that are often found in tap water. The fewer contaminants that your pet ingests, the better chances it has of maintaining a strong immune system. Giving a dog filtered water can also reduce the number of allergies.

Healthy Clean Water For Your Pets From Culligan Lake of the Ozarks

If you are not drinking the tap water, why would you give it to your pets? Make sure you give them clean drinking water from Culligan Lake of the Ozarks. We offer a variety of different ways to ensure your home has healthy, clean water, such as drinking water systems, water softeners, water filtration systems and total home systems. To learn more about our filtered water services at the Lake of the Ozarks, visit our website at www.CulliganPro.com or call us at 573-346-5221.

Is Your Water Hard On Your Home?

A water softener may seem like an unnecessary addition to your home, but over time, hard water can drastically damage the quality of the house that you live in. Your Lake of the Ozarks Culligan Pros have seen this happen many times. 

It happens slowly, so by the time the effects are evident, it could be too late. Simply installing a water softener in your home now can avoid costly repairs in the future. 

What is hard water?

"Hard water" is water that contains a high mineral content. It is formed when water percolates through deposits of limestone and chalk, which are largely made up of calcium and magnesium carbonates. These elements are particularly problematic for the pipes and appliances in your house.

These minerals are all natural and not harmful for humans or animals if ingested, but your home does not handle them as easily. A water softener can lengthen the life and effectiveness of many different, important things in your home.  


Mineral deposits, often called "scale," attach to pipes as the water runs through them. This begins to build up over time, making the hole in the pipe smaller and blocking water flow. Once scale is attached to something, it is very difficult to remove. 

This results in lower water pressure, which can be a great inconvenience. Worse than that, though, is the fact that sometimes this scale can begin causing small holes in pipes, resulting in leaks. 


You may notice the wear and tear of hard water on appliances a little sooner. The scale builds up in these, inhibiting the water flow and making it very hard for the individual pieces of the appliances to do their job. 

The lower water pressure causes washing machines and dishwashers to fill much slower, lengthening the amount of time they need to work and increasing your water bill. Hard water is especially tough on water heaters. Once the scale buildup begins, the appliance's parts will begin to deteriorate rapidly.  


Just like hard water can damage your skin and hair from the film it leaves behind, the fixtures in your home collect this same film. Once scale attaches itself to something, it becomes very tough to remove. You will notice a white film and spots on shower doors and faucets. This will cause your kitchen and bathroom to look dirty and dingy, and it can also cause them to tarnish.  

Install a high quality Culligan water softener in your home!

Hard water can cause many problems for your home that will sneak up on you and could cost a lot of money to fix. Installing a water softener is an easy way to prevent these problems from happening. Your appliances will run better and the life of both them and the pipes in your home will remain in top condition for a much longer period of time. 

Culligan Lake of the Ozarks offers the most advance and highest quality water softeners on the market today. Contact us to find out which type of water treatment system by Culligan is the right one for your home.

9 Ways to Reduce In-Home Water Usage

Quality water is something that we all take for granted. The average American uses about 100 gallons of water per day. With more and more droughts happening across the country, water conservation is more important than ever. Taking measures to conserve water at home not only saves you money, but helps your community. Water conservation helps prevent pollution in nearby lakes, rivers and watersheds. Culligan Lake of the Ozarks has come up with a list of ways you can reduce the amount of water you use at home each day. A few small changes here and there can add up to hundreds of gallons of water saved.

1. Don't Use the Toilet as a Trashcan.
The toilet is one of the most water-intensive fixtures in your home. Every time you flush, 5 to 7 gallons of water is wasted. Avoid flushing facial tissues, cigarette butts, and other small bits of trash. Stick to only using the toilet for its intended purpose.

2. Take Shorter Showers. 
One easy way to reduce your water usage is to take shorter showers. In addition, turn the water off while you're lathering up and then turn it back on when you're ready to rinse. Just a 4 minute shower uses approximately 20 to 40 gallons of water.

3. Turn Off the Water When Brushing Your Teeth. Running the water while you're brushing your teeth is extremely wasteful. The average faucet releases 2 gallons of water per minute. After you wet your tooth brush, turn the water off. You can also fill a glass with water to use for rinsing rather than running water to rinse.

4. Only Run the Dishwasher and Washing Machine When Full. 
Dishwashers and washing machines both use a lot of water! Make sure you're not wasting that water by waiting until you have a full load to run them. In addition, beware that the permanent press cycle uses an extra 5 gallons of water for the extra rinse. 

5. Don't Pre-Rinse Your Dishes. 
By rinsing your dishes before you put them in the dishwasher, you're using twice the amount of water. Most modern dishwashers don't require a pre-rinse to get the job done. As long as you're loading it properly, a good scrape to get the majority of the food off will suffice.

6. Minimize Use of Your Garbage Disposal. 
In-sink garbage disposals require a lot of water to work properly. Rather than throwing all your food scraps down the sink, start a compost bucket.

7. When Washing Dishes By Hand, Don't Leave the Water Running.  Just like brushing your teeth, don't leave the water running when it's not needed. If you're washing dishes by hand, fill up one side with soapy water instead of leaving a stream of water running while you're scrubbing. In addition, don't leave the rinse water running throughout the washing process.

8. Keep a Bottle or Pitcher of Drinking Water in the Fridge. 
Waiting for the water to get cold enough for your desired drinking temperature takes time, which results in wasted water. Instead, fill up a bottle or pitcher of water to put in the fridge to get cold. An even better idea could be to invest in our bottled water delivery at the Lake of the Ozarks.

9. Fix Leaky Sinks and Running Toilets.  
At one drip per second, a leaky faucet can waste up to 3,000 gallons of water each year. A running toilet can waste up to 200 gallons of water each day. Do yourself a favor and get those issues fixed. The amount you spend on getting them fixed will be saved in water usage, reducing your water bill.
