Total Defense from Bacteria, Viruses, PFAS and more!

Culligans unique Total Defense Cartridge targets an extensive list of viruses, bacteria and volatile organic compounds that a typical reverse osmosis system cannot. For example, the Total Defense Cartridge can filter out PFAS. PFAS comprises a group of manmade chemicals that includes perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS). PFASs typically do not break down in the environment, especially when spilled or improperly disposed of, and they can seep into the water supply. 

Detroit Tap Water

From Detroit to Ann Arbor, the most problematic water concerns surround water safety and purity. With Michigan’s history of contamination issues, it’s no wonder lead and other potentially dangerous contaminants are top of mind all over the area.

Because most of Detroit’s tap water is sourced from surface water, like lakes and rivers, the water can often take on the tastes and smells associated with treatment chemicals. These have become especially noticeable as the city works to eliminate contaminants and impurities in the supply. 

And even with treatment, there are many minerals and impurities that can remain in the water, or can’t be completely removed through the municipal treatment process. Some of these include harmful contaminants like lead, hexavalent chromium (chromium-6), and arsenic.

Detroit is also used to experiencing surface level contamination from industrial and agricultural runoff, especially seasonally, which can impact the taste, smell, and safety of city tap water.

Detroit Reverse Osmosis Water Filtration

The best way to ensure your drinking water is always safe and great tasting 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 a handful of water treatment methods proven to remove contaminants like lead, radium, and chromium-6, excess minerals like calcium, and treatment chemicals like aesthetic chlorine.

Culligan’s RO filtration systems are customized for Detroit’s mostly surface water system, so you get better-tasting results from the tap you can count on. In addition to providing the peace of mind of totally safe drinking water at home, RO systems can save you money and hassle from disposable water bottles and pitcher filters that aren’t always up to the task of filtering Detroit’s specific water problems.

Culligan’s Reverse Osmosis drinking water systems are designed to fit a variety of kitchens — from modern finishes to timeless designs — so you can find the RO system that’s right for your home.

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.
