Soft Water Solutions for a Happier, Healthier Home with the Tri Lakes and Branson’s Most Experienced Water Softeners and Water Softening Systems

Treated, softer water in Branson has a variety of benefits, from sparing your most expensive appliances, to improving the look and feel of your hair, skin, and nails — it’s a difference the whole household can appreciate!

Branson water is sourced from a combination of ground and surface water supplies — like Lake Taneycomo and Crosby Well. Diversified water resourcing methods like these allow the city to provide for growing water needs consistently, but it can come at the cost of water quality.

It’s common to see water quality vary around the city, but the constant water complaint we hear throughout Branson is hard water problems.  These manifest in a number of ways throughout the home, but most noticeably as hard-to-clean, chalky build up around sinks, faucets, and fixtures, laundry that’s worn and scratchy, or skin that feels itchy and dry.

In addition to obvious hard water problems in Branson, residents may also experience under-the-radar issues associated with hard water, like appliances that need frequent servicing or repairs or utility bills that are higher than normal, or increasing each month. Plumbing problems, clogs, and corrosion can also be tell-tale signs of hard Branson water causing headaches at home.

Branson Hard Water

Minerals from the groundwater sources around Branson like calcium, magnesium, and iron can not only lead to plumbing and appliance problems, it can also make the tap water in your house taste less than fresh, sometimes even metallic or earthy.

Groundwater minerals are so common in Branson water, most areas test for various levels of hardness in the tap water. If you live in an area that’s served with a higher concentration of groundwater as opposed to surface water, like Lake Taneycomo, chances are you’ll have harder water, and more issues with that water in your home.

Trust The Branson Water Softening Experts

To ensure your water is the highest quality at home, treatment starts by removing the minerals from your water, so you’re left with softer water that’s easier on your home, and everyone in it. Whether you’re looking to improve the lifespan of your home’s most expensive appliances, reduce your monthly energy bill, or just enjoy better feeling skin, hair, nails, with water that tastes better, your Branson Culligan man can help you find the right water softener for your budget.

Water Softener Product Overview

Hard water can reduce the quality of water in your home and may also be driving up your water bills, cleaning costs and more. The signs of hard water are not always obvious, but can have detrimental effects on your home. Hard water can cause corrosive build of scale from mineral deposits in your pipes. Over time, your pipes can clog, water flow can diminish and water pressure will be reduced. Your local Culligan water expert offers a range of water softener products that fits your needs, wallet and for every size of household.


The Culligan® High-Efficiency Water Softener is the most efficient water softener in the market. You save more on water, salt, and electricity with patented smart technology that makes our high-efficiency water softeners up to 46% more efficient* than other softeners. Not only will you be saving your wallet by reducing water and electricity costs, but you will also be decreasing your home’s environmental footprint.


It is about more than energy efficiency - it's about intelligence. While using up to 50% less salt, the HE lets you know how many days remain until you need to refill it with salt. Our Aqua-Sensor® technology automatically detects changes in your water conditions and makes softening adjustments accordingly. You can even install an optional modem that will tell your Indio dealer directly if salt or service is needed.


Reduce trips to the basement as the Culligan® HE's remote display alerts you to any problems and gives you control over various functions, like activating the electronic bypass valve. And the Dial-a-Softness® control ensures that your water is always just the way you like it, never too soft or too hard.

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.
