BOISE, Idaho, May 6, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — The Healthy House Institute (HHI) – an Educational Center and Website providing consumers information to make their homes healthier – is pleased to recognize Culligan for its support of healthful water treatment in the BuildHealthy Project #1 in Boise.

Culligan International donated a Culligan High Efficiency Water Softener, an Aqua Cleer RO-30 (reverse osmosis) system, and a Heavy-Duty Whole House Filtration System to the healthy home project in Boise. Culligan of Idaho installed them.

“We are grateful to both Culligan International and Culligan of Idaho for generous support of this important program,” said Allen Rathey, president of HHI. “Water is elemental, and products with proven water-quality and -treatment performance – such as those certified by NSF International (NSF) – are important for homeowners to know about.”

Water-Treatment Support Tools

Culligan High Efficiency Water Softener

This flagship model automatically adjusts for different inbound water hardness, customizes the amount of softness desired, efficiently lowers monthly water, salt, and electricity costs versus legacy softeners, keeps homeowners in control through digital readouts of usage and performance, and – with an optional modem – automatically sends service notices (e.g., the need for salt) to the local “Culligan Man”.

Softened water helps water-using appliances last longer and use less energy, while reducing soap, shampoo, and detergent use.

Culligan Aqua Cleer RO-30 (reverse osmosis) System

This 5-stage reverse osmosis (RO) system, augmented with carbon media, is customized for purifying water based on local conditions (water-quality professionals test the water first before specifying the filter configuration) and removes impurities like barium, lead, radium, aesthetic chlorine, hexavalent chromium (chromium-6), and arsenic (these contaminants may not necessarily be in the water). A built-in under-sink RO system often saves money compared to store-bought plastic-bottled water (and fewer plastic bottles go to landfills). The unit is certified by the Water Quality Association (WQA).

Heavy-Duty Whole House Filtration System

Whole house filtration is designed as a large-volume Point of Entry (POE) barrier to capture sediment, certain hardness minerals, and other debris before it enters the home.
