5 Benefits of a Home Water Filtration System


This post was sponsored by Culligan Water as part of an Integrated Program for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own.

Two years ago when I first moved to Idaho, I got my first taste of what it meant to have hard water. Living in a new home without a water softener or filtration system, I quickly noticed water build-up on my appliances, windows, dishes, in my showers, sinks, etc. I would wash my dishes, let them dry, and they didn’t even look clean! Plus, every time I filled up a glass of water, the water’s “cloudiness” totally grossed me out. Fast forward 2 years and I finally have a Culligan Water Filtration System installed in my home. Although I’ve only had my Culligan Water Filtration System for a week and a half, I’ve already noticed some major changes in my home.

What is a water filtration system?

As my 5-year-old was watching the Culligan employees install our Culligan Water Filtration System, he turned to me and asked, “What is that thing?” Explaining in simple terms, I told him that the Water Filtration System improves our drinking water. Not only does it make our water taste better, but also it helps provide cleaner drinking water. I also love knowing that it is better for my kids, keeps my dishes/sink cleaner, eliminates build up when used for cleaning, and improves flavor while cooking. Culligan, the world leader in innovative water filtration systems and softeners, is a brand that I know my family can trust – and as a mom, that means a lot. With over 80 years of water quality service and experience, they ensure that every day is a “good water day.”

Where is the system installed?

My Culligan Water Filtration System was installed next to my water softener in my utility room.

Before my system was installed, a Culligan employee came and talked me through the benefits and explained the Water Filtration System (this appointment lasted less than a half hour). A few days later, they came and installed the whole system in under 3 hours. As an added bonus, we were also able to hook the water softening system up to the Culligan app on my phone to track our ongoing water usage!

2. Annual filter changes. When I first told my husband about the water filtration system, he was concerned that we would have to continually change out filters the rest of our lives. The cool thing about these filters is that two of them only need to be replaced about every year, and the other one can last up to four years.

3. Improves drinking water. I was kind of surprised how quickly I noticed a difference in the clarity and taste of my water. In my opinion, it tastes just like bottled water. Even my two year old commented on the delicious taste. I feel like I’m spoiled now and never want to drink any other water! The ice cubes are even clearer.

4. Eliminates water build up. I love having independent kids – every time they are thirsty, they go and get themselves a drink of water. My only complaint is that they aren’t always mindful of water spilling all over the counter or down the fridge. Before filtered water, the hard water stains were inevitable. However, in the short time we’ve had our Culligan Water Filtration System, I’ve already noticed a huge decrease in water build-up in my kitchen.

5. Cuts down on bottled water. I love taking bottled water to the gym. However, now that I have the Culligan Water Filtration System in my own home, I prefer filling up my water bottles with my own water. This cuts down on money and plastic water bottles.

I really am very impressed at the many benefits I’ve already experienced my Culligan Water Filtration System. I’m so excited to share my full experience with Culligan Water in a future blog post. Stay tuned!

What I found most interesting about this was what you said about it eliminating build up when you use it for cleaning. I have been having such a hard time getting my dishes to be perfectly clean and there always seems to be a film on my sink. This seems to be something that would get rid of that problem and that would really help me reduce some stress about cleaning. Thank you for all of your advice!

Thanks for letting us know that filters only need to be changed out about once a year. My husband and I have been wondering if it would be worth it contact a service to install a water system into our home. Since we'll only need to change filters annually, we'll be sure to contact a home water service right a way.

I like this filtration system. Healthy life starts from clean water because most of the diseases enters through water. Everyone should have a good filtration system.

That doesn't take up much room at all! I am always urging my kids to drink more water and this system sounds like it would make the water better for them.
