Culligan HE Water Softener
Save your skin, save your hair, save on home costs! Find out how a Culligan Water Softener pays for itself!
Your Water Is A Lifetime Investment. Don’t Settle For Big Box Retail and Third-Party Plumbers! Hard water can be a hassle, from leaving hard-to-clean, cloudy residue on fixtures and appliances, to slowly driving up your utility costs. Water softeners can help alleviate cleaning stress and early appliance burnout, while improving the taste and efficiency of your water.
Cleveland Hard Water Issues
Since Cleveland drinking water primarily comes from Lake Erie, tap water can be hard. This means it has a higher level of dissolved minerals like calcium and lime, responsible for that white, chalky residue on faucets and fixtures. Some people also find hard water has an unpleasant or noticeable taste.
The Water Softener Solution
Water softeners are one of the most common and effective methods used to treat hard water. Culligan’s High Efficiency Water Softener solves these hard water problems for good, and provides added benefits to help your house run more smoothly and efficiently.
In addition to leaving behind hard-to-clean traces and sometimes tasting a little ‘off,’ hard water can also damage your home’s pipes and appliances, and even impact the quality of your laundry, hair, and skin over time. For example, dry, itchy skin, stiff, worn laundry, or spotted, filmy dishes are all the effects of hard water in your house.

Frequently Asked Questions
Will my water taste salty?
No. A properly functioning water softener will never make your water taste salty. The small amount of sodium added to the water will never create a salty taste.
How do I know if I have hard water?
Hard water usually manifests itself in several ways. It leaves white residue behind wherever water evaporates. When hardness reacts with soaps and detergents, it leaves a sticky soap scum behind, and in hot water heating systems it leaves behind a hard scale.
How does a water softener work?
A water softener works through a process known as “ion exchange,” which means that as it removes calcium and magnesium (elements that make water “hard”), it replaces those ions on a one for one basis, usually with sodium. This means that the amount of sodium added to the water is directly proportional to how hard your water is. In most instances the amount being added is so small that it is not a significant contributor to the amount of sodium in your diet.
Will a water softener reverse the damage that has already been done to my appliances?
Yes, if your hard water has been building up scale in your appliances, once you install a softener it will begin to remove that built-up scale. It will take a long time to remove it, but it will remove it.
Will the softener remove all impurities from my water?
Unfortunately, no. A water softener is designed to remove hardness (calcium and magnesium) from water. They can sometimes remove a limited amount of iron and manganese if you happen to have these problems as well. But if you are looking for great water for drinking and cooking, you should probably consider a reverse osmosis system for that purpose.
Are there chemicals used or put into the water to soften the water?
Other than salt or potassium chloride, there are no other chemicals that a water softener uses. On the contrary, using a water softener reduces the amount of cleaning supplies and detergents that you need to put down the drain trying to keep your home and family clean. Using a water softener is very environmentally friendly.
How long after installation will I have soft water?
Once a softener is installed, it will begin to soften your water immediately, However, if you have a tank-type hot water heater, it may take a few days to use up that hard water, until you feel the full effects of soft water.
How often do I need to add salt?
Most good softeners today, recharge based on how many gallons of water you use, and how hard your water is to start with. However, most of our customers today are adding salt once or twice a year, on average.
