I love the taste of the water. The people who work there, driver’s and office personnel, are very polite and helpful. It is nice not having to carry in loads of 20 ounce bottles because I won’t drink the tap water and the cost is comparable.

Forever Chemicals In Joplin Drinking Water
Polyfluorinated alkyl substances (PFAS), also known as ‘Forever Chemicals’ have been found in the tap water of various locations across the United States, including parts of Missouri, there’s a valid concern about potential exposure and its long-term effects on public health. Monitoring and managing PFAS contamination in water sources is crucial to ensure the safety and well-being of the community.
PFAS are persistent chemicals that can accumulate in the human body over time through exposure to contaminated water, food, or air. These substances have been linked to various health issues, including liver damage, immune system disruption, thyroid disorders, and an increased risk of certain cancers.

The Best Water Softeners and Water Filters in Joplin
With this combination of water resources, Joplin water quality often faces our share of water filtration and treatment issues:
Surface water, like rivers and snow melt, absorb contaminants that can be harmful for consumption as well as annoying around the home. Most of these contaminants include naturally occurring bio materials and minerals. This means water quality can worsen seasonally when warming temperatures contribute to algal blooms, or heighten water sensitivity to microorganism growth.
Ground water presents its own treatment challenges and filtration issues, so Joplin residents with primarily ground water service may see different water problems than those using water from Joplin’s surface water sources. Most often, these manifest as hard water problems which cause buildup on faucets and fixtures, and can be hard on appliances and plumbing.
The Best Joplin Water from the Water Filtration Experts at Culligan
Across the country, water typically comes from one of three sources: surface water sources, groundwater sources, or a combination of the three. In the Joplin area, your water typically comes from a combination of surface water sources, like the Shoal Creek, and groundwater sources, like underground wells. Because your drinking water comes from both of these sources, it is important to be aware of how each of these sources can impact the water quality in your Joplin home.
Surface water is water that originates in lakes, rivers, creeks, reservoirs, or similar water sources. Because these sources are exposed to the air, they are more susceptible to contamination. These contaminants, which can include microorganism growth, biomaterial, algae, and common pollutants, can drastically affect how the water coming out of your tap tastes. While your municipality will normally eliminate the harmful bacteria, the chemicals that they use to do so can have a negative effect on the taste, smell, and look of your water.
On the other hand, groundwater (water that originate underground like wells or aquifers) isn’t exposed to all of these contaminants. While the water doesn’t experience some of the common side effects of surface water, it is not without its own shortcomings. One of the most common complaints is that water tends to be much harder than surface water sources. This can leave you with white buildup around your plumbing fixtures, rust-colored stains in your sinks or tub, and bad tastes and smells in your drinking water.
Since Joplin drinking water comes from a combination of both of these sources, it is important to make sure your home is protected from the troubles they both cause. At Joplin Culligan, we have great local employees coupled with over 80 years of water treatment experience. This means that we know our area’s water, and the specific water problems that are common here. This allows us to make sure that you, and your home, are happier with Culligan.
