Safe, better-than-bottled water right from your tap
Reverse osmosis is the simple way to make sure that the water you and your family drinks and uses is always free from potentially harmful contaminants, like lead and arsenic.
Our Kalamazoo and Battle Creek tap water has had its share of issues, and even with municipal treatment, contaminants and impurities can still be present in your neighborhood’s water supply.
From recent safety concerns like PFA levels to more aesthetic complaints like cloudy or discolored water, unreliable access to clean, great tasting water can impact how much water we drink – impacting our long-term health.
Southwestern Michigan Tap Water
Recently, a state-of-emergency was issued after the discovery of per-and polyfluoroalkyl (PFAS) compounds in the public water system that serves residents of Parchment and other portions of Cooper Township. The levels of these PFAs reached almost 20 times the EPA established lifetime health advisory. But what can be done to prevent issues like this?
Though municipal water treatment removes many minerals and contaminants from your water, persistent and potentially harmful contaminants like these PFAs can remain.
One thing that has proven to be effective in combatting PFA-related contaminants is a reverse osmosis system. Call Culligan of Kalamazoo and Battle Creek today to get a free water test and find out if a reverse osmosis system can help remove PFOA-type contaminants in your home.

On July 26, local officials found an alarming amount of PFAs in a small community in Northeast Kalamazoo
Does your tap water taste bad? If so, there could be contaminants such as chlorine or sulfur in your water. Let Culligan recommend a drinking water solution for your home.
Chlorine is one of the most commonly used water disinfectants use by water companies. However, it can leave an unpleasant taste in your water when it reaches your home. Let your Culligan Man recommend which water solution is right for your home!
Bitter or Salty Taste
Water that tastes salty could be caused by sulfate concentration levels and geographic tendencies. Luckily, Culligan can remove the salty taste from your water. Let your Culligan Man recommend which water solution is right for your home!
Nitrates are a potential contaminant in ground water originating from nitrogen, a plant nutrient present in inorganic fertilizers and animal manure and can be found in well water. Call your local Culligan Man to schedule your free water analysis.
Lead rarely occurs naturally in water; it usually gets into the water from the delivery system. Lead pipes are the main contributor to high lead levels in tap water. Other sources include parts of the water delivery system such as lead solder used to join copper pipes, brass in faucets, coolers, and valves. Let your Culligan Man recommend a water solution to solve your lead problem.

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.
- 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.
- 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".
- 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.
