Hard Water

Do you have hard water spots or mineral build up?

Stop hard water spots and scaling with Culligan.

Hard water results from high levels of calcium and magnesium in water. It's a natural occurrence that affects over 85% of the water supply in North America. Hard water minerals stick to everything water touches, and do more than leave an unsightly residue - they can actually harm your home and cost you money!

The map illustrates the approximate grains per gallon (GPG). Your water hardness may vary depending on the source. Contact your local Culligan Water Specialist if you'd like to get your water tested.
Common hard water problems include –
  • Spots on dishes, glassware and utensils
  • Mineral build-up on faucets, and in sinks and tubs
  • Excessive cleaning products and time needed for cleaning, due to mineral build-up
  • Higher electric and gas bills, due to mineral build-up on water heater heating coils
  • Shortened life spans for water using appliances due to mineral build-up on internal mechanisms
  • Increased soap and shampoo use, because hard water doesn't produce a good lather
  • Stiff, worn clothes from leftover mineral and soap residue
  • Dry, flaky skin from leftover mineral and soap residue
  • Brittle, lifeless hair from leftover mineral and soap residue
