Bacteria

Is there bacteria in your water?

Remove harmful bacteria from your water with Culligan

Harmful bacteria such as E. Coli and coliform typically originate and grow in human and animal intestinal tracts. But how do these contaminants get into your drinking water?

Water contaminated by E. Coli or other toxic bacteria, often result from sewage overflow, an improperly functioning sewage system, polluted storm water runoff, or agricultural water runoff. Coliform bacteria usually perish within 30 days of living outside of their hosts. So if a water test reveals dangerous bacteria, it’s likely harmful pathogens are present and that these contaminants are regularly entering your well or aquifer.

Wells are particularly vulnerable to harmful bacteria, especially if they’re shallow, or have been dug, bored, or submerged by floodwater for extended periods of time.

Harmful bacteria, such as E. Coli, in your water can pose an especially dangerous health risk for infants, young children, the elderly, and the immune deficient and lead to the following health problems:

  • Diarrhea
  • Cramps
  • Nausea
  • Headaches
  • Other long-term health effects

Thankfully, Culligan can help ensure your water remains free of harmful bacteria. We provide chemical feeders and pumps, which are packaged chlorination systems for commercial and household use, filtration systems for bacteria and cyst removal, and ultraviolet disinfection systems for commercial and industrial applications.

What Clients Say
I've been a customer for more than a decade, and every interaction with every employee has been pleasant and professional. They are responsive, knowledgeable, and courteous--and patient. The last time I had softener salt delivered, I forgot all about it, so when the driver rang the doorbell, it took me a few minutes to get dressed and get the dogs in their crates. When I finally got to the door, the poor guy was standing there with a fifty-pound bag of salt on each shoulder. I felt awful, but he wasn't the least bit upset, or at least he didn't show it. Prices are very reasonable, and it sure beats hauling monstrous bags of salt from the store to the car to the basement. Great company!
