See Where Softer Water Takes You, With the Best in Coachella Valley Water Softening

Remove hard water, and the problems it causes in your home, with an advanced, energy efficient water softener from Culligan.

Hard water throughout the Coachella Valley does more to damage homes, and the people in them, than you might realize. Minerals and dissolved solids that make Indio’s water hard can also impact how your water tastes and works in your home.

For example, minerals like calcium, magnesium, and iron can take a toll on your appliances which have to work overtime to get the job done. This ends up costing you extra in utilities every month.

Because most of the city of Indio and the Coachella Valley’s water comes from an underground source, these hardness-causing minerals are common and can range in concentration depending on the neighborhood, and even house by house.

Many area residents see effects of hard water in their home in the form of chalky, white buildup around fixtures. This also means there is buildup you can’t see (like inside your pipes and major appliances) that can be costing you in electricity each month and in overall appliance life and performance for water heaters, washing machines, and more.

Coachella Valley Hard Water

In addition to the problems hard water can cause for plumbing and appliances, it can also impact how water tastes and smells. These contaminants can even carry over into how beverages and foods taste.

Hard water is also known for being tough on skin and hair, often leaving both feeling dry or itchy, especially in the winter months. Many people also notice nails can be more brittle and prone to cracking or splitting as a result of hard water.

It’s also common for hard water to make you run through personal care and cleaning products quickly. The minerals in this kind of water inhibit the formation of suds, meaning you use more to clean less, and less efficiently. Soft water, by contrast, lathers quickly and with very little product, for a cleaner, faster, more effective rinse.

"After seeing Culligan's commercial about hard water spots and stains, my husband and I realized our water quality could be a lot better. Culligan got us the right water conditioning equipment at a very affordable price." - Miguel R., Coachella Valley

Frequently Asked Questions about Culligan Water Softeners


1. Will my water teste salty?

No.  A properly functioning water softener will never make your water taste salty.  The small amount of sodium added to the water will never create a salty taste.

2. How do I know if I have hard water?

Hard water usually manifests itself in several ways.  It leaves white residue behind wherever water evaporates. When hardness reacts with soaps and detergents, it leaves a sticky soap scum behind, and in hot water heating systems it leaves behind a hard scale.

3. How does a water softener work?

A water softener works through a process known as “ion exchange,” which means that as it removes calcium and magnesium (elements that make water “hard”), it replaces those ions on a one for one basis, usually with sodium.  This means that the amount of sodium added to the water is directly proportional to how hard your water is.  In most instances the amount being added is so small that it is not a significant contributor to the amount of sodium in your diet.

4. Will a water softener reverse the damage that has already been done to my appliances?

Yes, if your hard water has been building up scale in your appliances, once you install a softener it will begin to remove that built-up scale.  It will take a long time to remove it, but it will remove it.

5. Will the softener remove all impurities from my water?

Unfortunately, no.  A water softener is designed to remove hardness (calcium and magnesium) from water.  They can sometimes remove a limited amount of iron and manganese if you happen to have these problems as well.  But if you are looking for great water for drinking and cooking, you should probably consider a reverse osmosis system for that purpose.

6. Are there chemicals used or put into the water to soften the water?

Other than salt or potassium chloride, there are no other chemicals that a water softener uses.  On the contrary, using a water softener reduces the amount of cleaning supplies and detergents that you need to put down the drain trying to keep your home and family clean. Using a water softener is very environmentally friendly.

7. How long after installation will I have soft water?

Once a softener is installed, it will begin to soften your water immediately, However, if you have a tank-type hot water heater, it may take a few days to use up that hard water, until you feel the full effects of soft water.

8. How often do I need to add salt?

Most good softeners today, recharge based on how many gallons of water you use, and how hard your water is to start with.  However, most of our customers today are adding salt once or twice a year, on average.

Installation, Repair and Servicing of Your Culligan Water Softener


A water softener is more than just another appliance in your home; it’s an investment in your home and all the people in it. That’s why we think your water softener should come with the proper installation, repair, and servicing — because it’s not just about buying a water softener, it’s about getting the most out of it, as long as you own it.

Culligan Water Softeners Vs. Off-the-Shelf Water Softeners 


Today, you have almost too many choices about where to make big purchases, and water softeners are no different. You could have one delivered from Amazon in 2 days, pick one out at the local Home Depot, or contact a plumber to have him or her recommend one for you. In all of these cases, however, you’ll be relatively alone in the process, and you may not even end up with the right water softener for your particular home, and your specific water softening needs.

Additionally, you’ll be on the hook for all of the maintenance required with a water softener, things like:

  • Checking salt levels
  • Brine discharge
  • Water quality and flow checks
  • System sanitization
  • Timer and sensor checks
  • Programming
  • Routine performance tune ups

We think people have enough to worry about without adding, ‘did I remember to order more salt for the water softener?’ to the list.

And suppose something goes wrong with the installation and it only comes up 2 months down the line? That’s on you, too. Water softeners are a service as much as a product — the impact the right water softener can have on your home and your water is much bigger than just the softener itself, especially when done correctly.

We Know Water Softener Repair (Maybe a Little Too Much)


Maybe the issue is that you already have a water softener, and you have no clue what to do with that thing in the basement, or why it’s making that noise.

It doesn’t matter if it’s a Culligan brand water softener, or a competitor’s, we’ll repair and service it for you, no questions asked.

We know our way around just about any make or model water softener you could come up with.  And if we don’t have the parts or know-how to fix the problem right there - we’ll special order parts or call our water softening experts to get the answer.

Water Softener Installation and Maintenance


We’ve also seen just about all the plumbing quirks and configurations you could throw at us, too. Just as every home is different, every water softener instal is a bit unique, too.

We’re experienced at installing our own products — and even 3rd party products — with as little modification to existing plumbing as possible. No matter where you need it to fit, or how it needs to adapt to your environment, we’ll come up with an effective, efficient plan to get your softener working.

Not only that, we’ll set up maintenance plans and reminders for you - so you never have to worry about your salt levels, tune ups, or water quality. We’ll arrive on your schedule when it’s time for servicing and take care of everything, so you can spend your time worrying about more important things than your water softener.
