Advanced Reverse Osmosis Systems and Local Drinking Water Filtration from the Water Experts
The most trusted water filtration starts with Culligan. Give your home fresher, better-tasting water with the confidence only a reverse osmosis drinking water filter can provide.
With most of the Hudson Valley’s water coming from surface water sources, knowing exactly what is in your home’s water can be a challenge. With a higher risk of contaminants in surface water sources, the taste of the water coming out of your tap might not be as fresh, or consistent, as you’d like.
Like many areas across the country, eastern New York experiences a range of water issues that impact the taste, efficiency, and overall quality of your water.
Drinking Water Quality in Hudson Valley
Drawing from the Hudson River, the Alcove Reservoir, and the Basic Creek Reservoir, tap water from Newburgh to Scotia has seasonal variances in both quality and taste. To address these changes and meet water quality standards, area public utilities use chemicals and other additives as part of the filtration process to ensure water is safe to consume – some of which can leave a noticeable taste of smell in tap water.
Simple, Effective Filtration with Hudson Valley RO Water Systems
One of the most trusted methods available to improve water taste and quality is a Reverse Osmosis water system. This is especially true for water that’s been through rigorous treatment, like the Hudson Valley Water supply. RO systems from Culligan can use advanced, wireless technology to provide the most dependable reverse osmosis water, right from your existing tap.

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.
Chromium-6 (or hexavalent chromium) has recently been discovered in limited amounts in some water supplies.

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 reduces Chromium-6.

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.
