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
Everyone was so nice to work with and very informative. Joanne took took time to not only explain how everything would work, she also took water samples and showed us how much iron and hardness was in our water and what it could be like with the Culligan system. Our well water was making my husband sick and after she showed us we suspected why. Everyone was on time to do each of their parts and we now have the most amazing water! My hair is so shiny and soft now that it just amazes me. Our clothes our soft without any fabric softener and the water no longer makes my husband sick. This was one of the best investments we could make for our new home. Thank you, Culligan Team!!!!!
