Cutting-edge reverse osmosis water filtration delivers fresher, better-tasting Coachella Valley tap water — easier than ever.
Turn on better water, right in your kitchen, with worry-free RO water filters to experience the difference filtered water makes.
Tap water in Indio and the Coachella Valley can take on a noticeable taste and odor, usually a result of naturally-occuring minerals in the water. And while these minerals are generally safe to consume, they don’t always make for the best-tasting tap water. They can also leave coffee, tea, and other beverages and recipes tasting bitter or ‘off.’
The groundwater supply used by the city is often free of many common water impurities, as this kind of water filters through several layers of rock and sediment that serve as a kind of natural filtration, however, this also means water takes on many hard water minerals , like calcium, iron, and magnesium, by the time it’s pumped out for city use. These minerals are often responsible for unpleasant tastes or odors from Indio taps.
Coachella Valley and Indio Drinking Water
Hard water in the Coachella Valley primarily comes from a large groundwater aquifer, generally referred to as ‘the groundwater basin,’ that pumps water from beneath layers of rock. In order for water to reach the Indio aquifer, it accumulates added minerals and TDS (total dissolved solids) that can cause strange or unpleasant tastes or odors in the tap water.
Depending on where you live in Indio or the Coachella Valley, your water may contain different levels of these minerals and other contaminants, which is why it’s important to have your water tested regularly. In most cases, the dissolved minerals found in water are harmless, and can even provide some benefits for drinking, but they can also contribute to a metallic or bitter taste in water making it hard to swallow. It can also change the way beverages like coffee and tea taste, as well as dishes and recipes that rely on water for baking or cooking.
Reverse Osmosis Water Filtration
Reverse osmosis filtration is one of the most effective ways to remove the dissolved minerals from water that cause it to be hard and taste or smell less than fresh. RO filtration is also effective at removing potentially harmful and sometimes pervasive contaminants and chemicals from water, like lead, radium, aesthetic chlorine, hexavalent chromium (chromium-6), and arsenic.
The advanced technology in reverse osmosis filtration is customized to get the best-tasting results from your Coachella Valley water. So whether you’re concerned about contaminants or just want a better-tasting way to stay hydrated without plastic bottles, Culligan RO filters deliver fresher, filtered water right from your kitchen sink.

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.
