Lead contamination is at the forefront of our mind these days, and it should be.
According to the New York Times:
The Environmental Protection Agency says streams tapped by water utilities serving a third of the population are not yet covered by clean-water laws that limit levels of toxic pollutants.
However with any health crisis, it’s important to know and understand the facts, and fortunately the facts are easy to find with a water test.
If you suspect or are concerned that you have lead present in your water, here’s what to do:
- Get your water tested. Contact us at Kaat's Culligan and we can test your water for lead.
- If lead is detected, we’ll send your water to our EPA-certified laboratory to test for a more detailed analysis.
- We’ll help you interpret your results so you can make an educated decision about what to do next.
If you have lead present in your water the best way to treat it is with reverse osmosis. A Culligan Reverse Osmosis Drinking Water System reduces lead by 98.1% so you can feel confident in trusting Culligan with your family’s drinking water.
If you’re not sure if you should get your water tested, here are a few red flags:
- Appearance – Water has a brown or red tint or has started staining sinks and fixtures.
- Odor – Water smells dirty, metallic, or has any noticeable odor.
- Taste – Water tastes metallic, dirty, or “off” in any way.
If you have any questions or want to learn more about why lead leaches into water, its health effects, or how to treat it, we’re happy to discuss this with you.

We've definitely enjoyed the perks of having a personal water dispenser on site at Olivü 426. We used to fill our cups from the tap, but let's be honest, tap water just doesn't taste that good. Since we installed the unit, the entire staff has noticed we each drink a lot more water during the day. It comes out nice and cold and the flavor is delicious. We chose to have the "hot water" feature which is perfect for making a cup of tea, especially during the cold winter months. Overall it was a decision I'm glad we made. It's improved the health and performance of my employees and myself...for pennies on the dollar. Culligan Water and their whole team has been exceptional to work with and we know you'll love working with them too.
Culligan has serviced our plant very well. Kept up with demand changes and willing to please us here at United Packaging Inc. Reedsville. In fact I even purchased a water softener at home and love the personal service I received.
