Does your Columbus water exhibit repulsive smells, foul tastes, or harmful impurities?  Enjoy the best-tasting water you can get by removing these symptoms with advanced reverse osmosis filtration.

No matter where you live, tap water has been known to exhibit a noticeable taste or odor.  While this is normally a natural result of water sourced from groundwater, that doesn’t make it any more pleasant to drink.

This occurs because as groundwater seeps through the layers or sediment and rock to its resting place beneath the earth, it accumulates additional minerals that cause hard water and its symptoms.

Know Your Columbus Drinking Water

Hard water is common in in areas like ours that get our municipal water from groundwater sources.  As the water goes through the layers of the earth, it picks up minerals like calcium, magnesium, and iron.  The specific minerals – and in what concentrations – depends on several factors, like the type and quality of the rock that the water passes through.  Normally, though, groundwater sources all have some level of total dissolved solids, or TDS, in them that causes the effects of hard water.  While these minerals may impact the taste and smell of your water, they can also find their way into your tea, coffee or anything you cook or bake.

If you want to remove these dissolved minerals, along with many other contaminants that can negatively impact your water, from your water, a reverse osmosis filter may be the most effective way.  Culligan of Columbus’s advanced RO technology is designed with your home’s specific water needs in mind to guarantee that you are getting the best water possible.  So whatever water problems you may be experiencing, whether it is hard or poor-quality water, reverse osmosis filters from Culligan can give you great-tasting water right from the convenience of your sink.

Frequently Asked Questions about Culligan Reverse Osmosis Systems


I have heard a lot about Chromium 6 in drinking water in the news. What is Chromium 6 and can Culligan equipment filter out Chromium 6?

Yes, chromium six (or hexavalent chromium) has recently been discovered in limited amounts in some water supplies. Chromium six is suspected of being a carcinogen, and should not be ingested at amounts above the federally mandated limits.  We have never been alarmists, but if you are concerned about the quality of the water you drink, you might want to consider a reverse osmosis system.  Reverse Osmosis is the only readily available system that removes up to 97% of chromium six.

  1. What is Reverse Osmosis (R.O.)?

Reverse osmosis is a sophisticated multi-stage filtration system that is capable of removing up to 97% of all the dissolved minerals from your water.  It is designed to make water that is at least as good as the water you buy in bottles.  Many times, it’s even better.  This reduces waste in landfills by using less bottled water, making reverse osmosis environmentally friendly.

  1. Is Reverse Osmosis water really as good as bottled?

Yes - The system uses multiple processes including Reverse Osmosis to make great tasting, low sodium drinking water. Reverse Osmosis removes about 97% of the TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) including salt and sodium from the water. Read the labels on bottled water and you will discover Reverse Osmosis is the same process used by most bottlers ... so in effect ... you really are getting ... "bottled water ... without the bottle".

  1. I already have a filter in my refrigerator? Why do I need anything else?

Refrigerator filters are typically just carbon, and while carbon filtered water is better than no treatment at all, it is limited in what it can remove. Only reverse osmosis is capable of removing dissolved minerals and chemicals from your water.
