The highest quality drinking water in Elmira, from Culligan.
Upgrade your drinking water with reverse osmosis filtration you can count on, from the water experts at Culligan.
In the Southern Tier of New York and Northern Pennsylvania, we’re lucky to have a variety of water resources. From the Finger Lakes to underground aquifers, these sources provide reliable water for the area. Like all natural water resources, however, these lakes and groundwater wells can take on contaminants that reduce the quality and taste of your tap water.
With such a diverse supply of water sources throughout the region, this also means that water quality can vary from neighborhood to neighborhood, and even home to home. Depending on your water source you may also notice seasonal changes with your tap water, something that may not always be pleasant — whether it’s an increase in the chlorine smell or taste, or a cloudiness or turbidity that can make your drinking water less appealing than normal, tap water is often at the mercy of the elements and the municipal treatment process.
Elmira Tap Water
Throughout Elmira, the most problematic water concerns are often directly related to which water source you rely on. For example, if you live in the Finger Lakes region, it’s likely you’re serviced by the surface water from the lake nearest you. As a result, your water may be more easily contaminated by environmental factors, as well as agricultural and industrial activity nearby.
If you live in northern Pennsylvania, it may be more likely you’ll have water sourced from an underground well or aquifer. While usually less prone to seasonal contamination than surface water sources, ground water also experiences its share of issues — namely, excess dissolved minerals that can leave water tasting or smelling metallic, chlorinated, or even like rotten eggs.
In most cases, municipal treatment ensures that all water in the region is safe to drink, however, this level of treatment doesn’t always address some of the larger drinking water concerns in and around Elmira, like the taste, smell, and overall quality of the water.

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.

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.

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.
