Paul’s a customer in Raleigh with a Culligan Water Softener, Carbon Filter, and Salt Delivery Service.
At my Culligan Rep Joey’s request, I present to you my honest opinion of the Culligan 10×40 Medallist water conditioning system I had installed in my home in Raleigh (The Gates at Ethan’s Glen).
Having never previously dealt with well water, I was unfamiliar with hard water conditions. The effects of the hardness was immediately evident upon moving into our new home. White calcium deposits began to develop around all water outlets, especially hot water outlets. The shower glass, tiles and heads were all littered with a white crusty residue that was difficult to clean. The same material began to collect at every faucet in the house. Worse yet the dishwasher never really operated properly before the system was installed. Dishes simply were not clean and there was an unacceptable film over everything. I can’t explain to this day why that occurred, but I was truly ready to replace the brand new dishwasher thinking it was faulty. It was almost an immediate improvement in the performance of the dish washer when the system was installed. All evidence of the white crusty calcium residue also disappeared. I can only imagine the additional life my hot water heater will realize due to the same conditions. Clothing seemed clean but I seriously wonder what may have been on them following the clothing washing process?
I also had a 20″ Big Blue 20 Micron carbon filter installed for additional protection. With well water and semi-annual flushes of the neighborhood water supply, I felt this system would catch any harmful materials that would be present. Between my two systems and the filter in the refrigerator itself, I see no need to purchase bottled water as our water tastes great.I received an initial supply of solar salt for the system, of course. I decided that I would purchase solar salt from Home Depot or Lowes to save the few bucks over Culligan’s available salt supply program. Mistake. Not only could I not easily find the recommended $6 per bag store bought “solar” salt but for $8.65 per bag it is delivered right to my crawl space. Well worth participating in that program.Like everything in life there is usually a down side. It is only fair to point out what that is with regard to this system. I do not like the feeling of not being able to rinse soap off my body. Hands at the sink and body in the shower…it is the same thing. It is the unfortunate side effect of protecting the water systems in your home. Culligan doesn’t deny it because it is simply a fact of life with this system.Paul – Raleigh, NC
We could not be more pleased with our Culligan system. We have the whole house filter, reverse osmosis filter, and water softener. Since the system has been in place we have seen great improvements in our health, as well as other things like cleaner laundry and dishes. Our water appliances, especially the newer ones we had to replace because of corrosion due to unfiltered water, are in great shape. Joey is always very professional and informative, and really helped us pick the system that best suited our needs. We highly recommend Culligan!

Calvin lives in Louisburg appreciated our honest, up-front commitment to service.
The Culligan team, especially Joey, gave us superb insight on our water condition as well as providing us with only the necessary services our family needed. He did not try to sell us on over-the-top, unnecessary options that would not benefit us. His focus was on what were our needs, and that is a quality I have not seen for a long time. My personal and professional experience from Joey has been a blessing to our home.

MJ in Chapel Hill needed an Iron Removal system to treat her well water.
My Culligan water system has provided outstanding quality water since it was installed 6 years ago. My well water was saturated with iron and clay which created a real challenge. Throughout my time with Culligan, I’ve experienced excellent service and support from my salesperson, Joey, and the service technicians during annual cartridge and filter replacement. I sincerely appreciate their commitment to customer service and care.
