Their water filtration systems work to reduce dirt, sand, and silt buildup in plumbing lines in order to keep your kitchen, laundry room, and bathroom clean and fresh so, in turn, you and your family stay healthy.

Culligan’s whole house water filters focus on eliminating six major concerns related to tap water purity:

Blue-green stains
Unpleasant water odors
Chlorine and metallic taste
The presence of rust of plumbing fixtures
Cloudy Water
The presence of rust of plumbing fixtures

Not only do they actively remove the above issues from our water supply, but whole house water filters can even deal with more dangerous tap water contaminants. Culligan might not be as popular as other manufacturers, but their filters are so efficient, and they’re also known to have the best approach towards their customers.

Culligan understands that tap water quality can differ from one region to another. Because of this, they also offer free water tests to anyone interested in purchasing a whole house system. Moreover, they also have a wide range of diverse products which all offer efficient solutions for any kind of water problem you may have. 

High-Efficiency Whole House Water Filters

When it comes to Culligan’s high-efficiency whole house water filters, there are three main filters to choose from Cullar, Filtr-Cleer, and Cullneu. Each of these products comes available in two tank sizes: 9’’ tanks or 10’’ tanks. These tanks work on a backwashing system and in similar manners as professional filters used in water treatment plants. However, while this system is highly efficient in prolonging the lifespan of the filtration media, it’s actually not very commonly used in residential whole-house systems. This is due to the fact that it has the potential to waste a lot of water.

Whole-House System - General Features

Culligan has a few different whole house water systems, but all contain different types of contaminants. Despite that, however, they all have similar construction and use similar technologies.

The first one being, they all come with electronic controllers. This may seem a little complicated for some people to come to grips with initially, but you’ll come to find that it’s very common in well water filters. During the first-time setup, all you have to do is program the controller, it’s nothing overly complicated. You can also find all general settings described within the user manual. When set up, you’ll see that the controller displays the cartridge media lifespan and remaining capacity, which is all in all a great addition.

When it comes to warranty, the entire filters are covered for a minimum of one year of use. The soft-minder meter, the remote control, and the modem are covered for five years. The circuit board and the control valve body are both covered for a whopping ten years, and the tanks are covered for a lifetime.
