Improve your Pittsburgh tap water with cutting-edge reverse osmosis filtration for fresher, filtered water at home, easier than ever.
Put high-quality water right in your kitchen sink with leading RO filtration technology. Taste the difference that water without chemicals and impurities makes for your home and your health.
Tap water in Pittsburgh and the surrounding areas can have a noticeable taste and odor to it. While this is normally just the result of the surface water that the city uses, it doesn’t make for the most appealing way to quench your thirst.
Surface water often accumulates bacteria, algae, and other minerals that tend to make their home in these sources. While the city will filter out these impurities, it can still leave your water tasting, and smelling, less than fresh.

Pittsburgh Drinking Water
The water that you consume in Pittsburgh generally comes from surface water sources whose water originates from snowmelt in the mountain. This water can accumulate several impurities at the source and as it travels to and from your local treatment plant. Among these impurities are some level of dissolved minerals or TDS (total dissolved solids).
In most cases, dissolved minerals are harmless for human consumption, though they can impact the way water tastes and smells. They can also change how coffee, tea, and other beverages and recipes made with water taste and behave when cooking or baking.
Reverse Osmosis Water Filtration
Reverse Osmosis filtration is one of the most effective ways to remove these dissolved minerals (and many other impurities) from your Pittsburgh water. By removing these contaminants that can adversely affect the taste and odor of tap water, you can have fresher, better tasting water right from your tap. Advanced RO technology is customized to help you get the best tasting water, so even if you’re dealing with extremely hard or poor-quality water, reverse osmosis filters from Culligan deliver fresh, great-tasting water right from your kitchen sink.
RO filters are one of the most reliable methods of eliminating drinking water contaminant that can be harmful to your health. These contaminants are pervasive in many water supplies across the country and include lead, radium, aesthetic chlorine, hexavalent chromium (chromium-6), and arsenic.
Not only do we offer safer, more drinkable water, but Culligan also offers a range of designs and finishes for your RO system. So regardless of what your kitchen looks like, Culligan has a RO filter that will easily blend in.

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.
