It’s your tap water, only better. Get ultimate freshness from the tap with advanced Missouri RO treatment.

We all know cities do their best to treat water, but that doesn’t always mean infrastructure can handle evolving contaminants and impurities that can find their way into our water supply.

Because Lake of the Ozarks and the surrounding region rely almost entirely on groundwater sources for drinking water, many of the issues residents report with their drinking water are consistent with those of hard water, and other mineral contamination issues. These often manifest as water that tastes or smells unpleasant out of the faucet, like a metallic aftertaste, earthy, or chlorine-like odors.

In addition to the discoloration and unpleasant taste from high concentrations of dissolved minerals, groundwater can also be susceptible to contamination from agricultural and industrial activity. This can mean microbial contamination, or water that contains various amounts of herbicides, pesticides, or even radioactive elements that can be harmful in large concentrations.

Drawn from a system of wells throughout the region, Lake of the Ozarks water is no exception to concerns that often accompany groundwater.  Iron, calcium, and magnesium — common minerals found in groundwater — are responsible for all kinds of headaches around the house, while other contaminants, like arsenic, lead, and chromium-6, can be unsafe to consume, especially in the long term.  

Lake of the Ozarks Tap Water

Due to its groundwater sourcing, residents in and around Lake of the Ozarks often notice the problems commonly associated with hard water. This can impact not only how the water tastes — people often describe it as a mineral or metallic aftertaste — it can also make everything you make with water taste ‘off,’ and even impact the taste and results of recipes made with water.

Nearby farms, factories, and runoff from the community can also contribute to added, and sometimes unsafe, levels of contaminants in the drinking water. To be certain water is safe to drink and use at home, it’s important to have your water tested at least once a year. And if you find levels of contaminants, either bacterial, mineral, or organic, installing a home water filtering system can solve most drinking water problems.

Reverse Osmosis Water Filtration

The best way to ensure your drinking water is always safe, great-tasting, and contaminant-free is to use a multi-stage reverse osmosis filter — like the one in our Culligan® Aqua-Cleer® Advanced Drinking Water System.

Reverse osmosis filtration is one of the most dependable water treatment methods and is it’s proven effective at removing harmful contaminants like lead, radium, and chromium-6, as well as minerals like calcium, and treatment chemicals like chlorine that can cause unpleasant water tastes or smells.

Customized for Lake of the Ozarks' groundwater system, Culligan’s RO filtration systems deliver better-tasting results right from your own tap. In addition to providing safe drinking water you can count on at home, RO systems can help you save money and hassle by eliminating the cost and waste from disposable, single-use water bottles.

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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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".

  1. 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.
