Higher Quality Water That Works Harder at Home, with Columbus’ Best Whole Home Water Filters from Culligan

Access higher quality water at home, lower your utility bills, improve appliance function, protect plumbing, and more, with advanced water filtration solutions.

Untreated water in and around Columbus and eastern Nebraska is responsible for all kinds of household headaches. From the relatively innocuous white buildup and residue that dissolved minerals often leave behind on faucets and fixtures, to potentially damaging impact buildup can have on your plumbing and major appliances — no matter what kind of water problems you’re experiencing, a whole home water filtration system can help solve them.

Because tap water in Columbus and most of the region comes from groundwater sources, it’s very common for water quality to trend on the hard side of average. This means there’s a greater amount of dissolved minerals from the surrounding rock and sediment present in the area’s water supply. And while these minerals can be beneficial in modest quantities, they can also impact the way water tastes, smells, and functions in your home.

Because these minerals —most commonly calcium, iron, and magnesium — are generally harmless, they can also be found in taps all over Nebraska, where they can leave behind unpleasant tastes and odors, as well as stains and buildup on sinks, fixtures, and tubs, and even contribute to large appliance wear and tear that drives up your utility bills every month.

If you’ve been a longtime resident of Columbus, you might also notice additional hard water symptoms like:

  • Hair or skin that feels dried out
  • Brittle nails that are prone to cracking
  • Faded, worn-looking laundry that can feel stiff or scratchy even with fabric softener

Hard water problems in and around Columbus can also make it challenging to drink the recommended amount of water needed to stay hydrated. In certain cases, contaminated water can also cause health problems for small children, elderly, pregnant women, and other high-risk populations.

Columbus Water Quality

Depending on where you live in eastern Nebraska, your water may contain a variety of contaminants and hardness-causing minerals. Generally, the minerals typically found in hard water are harmless, so most cities — Columbus included — do not have treatment processes designed specifically to remove them. And due to additional municipal water treatment methods, you may also notice treatment chemicals, like chlorine, present in your water, which can impact its taste and smell.

If you’re tired of dealing with the headaches from hard water, or you’re looking to get better quality water from your tap, whole home water filtration provides an efficient, effective solution.

FAQ About Culligan® Whole House Filter Systems


1. What are the benefits of the Quadra-Hull® tank?

Culligan’s Quadra-Hull® tank is one of the strongest water tanks available on a water softener. The exclusive four-layer construction of the Quadra-Hull® tank provides more protection than industry standard fiberglass and metal tanks. This design makes them impervious to rust and corrosion and they are UV resistant. Culligan's Quadra-Hull® tanks offer a limited lifetime warranty on the tank and internal components.

2. What is filtered water?

Filtered water typically refers to water that has gone through a filtration process to reduce the amount of iron, hydrogen sulfide, aesthetic chlorine taste or odor, as well as microorganisms such as cryptosporidium and giardia.

Water filtration involves separating mineral particles, like particulates, iron, hydrogen sulfide, or organic matter, from the water molecule (H2O). By passing water through a "filter bed," or "media bed," these granular particles are trapped, allowing the cleaner water to pass through.
