Enjoy Better Monterey Water Quality with Reverse Osmosis Drinking Water Filters
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 so many water sources serving the greater Monterey area, finding out just what’s in your home’s water can be a challenge. And since most of the region’s water comes from a combination of rivers and aquifers, known as surface water sources, the taste from the tap might not be as fresh, or consistent, as you’d like.
Like many cities in Southern California, Monterey experiences a range of water issues that impact the taste, efficiency, and overall quality of your water.

Drinking Water Quality in Monterey
Drawing from the Carmel River and Seaside Basin, Monterey tap water quality and taste often varies seasonally. 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 or smell to tap water.
"I've been using Culligan-Sylmar for many years. Over the years, we simply call Steve French (and he always answers his phone) to see if he can stop by to test our water. Steve happily abides by our request and promptly reports back to us how much longer we have on the current filter. His efforts alone save us from unnecessarily replacing filters, thus saving us money! We are very happy with the service and product." - Kelly, Stevenson Ranch
"I've used Culligan for years and love love love my drinking water system and water softener. I've never had any issues including with the original sales team or the various service personnel! They are always helpful, prompt, and courteous." - RJ, Simi Valley

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.
